In VLC 1.0.5, sound files (mp3 and wav) are not playing completely. I think the leading .1 sec and trailing .5 second, more or less, are not playing. I remember this behavior from some years ago, but am not sure the app or how i fixed it. Seems like there was some setting that was causing it to clip the sounds, but can't find or remember it. The Zune Software and Windows Media Player work fine. Windows 7 Pro, if it matters.

Any suggestions?

It sounds like some sort of cross fade or fade in/fade out setting. I've looked at the Preferences buy can't find anything either. –  ChrisF Jun 6 '10 at 12:51
    
@ChrisF, "fade" rings a bell, but not sure. –  bill weaver Jun 6 '10 at 13:27
    
Fixed in VLC 1.2.0. Broken in 1.1.9. –  BobStein-VisiBone Sep 21 at 15:52
    
Thanks @BobStein-VisiBone. –  bill weaver Sep 22 at 15:23

I found that switching to a different output module sometimes allows a wave to play all the way through. It's not consistent though. This isn't an answer, but currently my rep is too low to leave a comment.
