Is anyone else experiencing a strange warbling sound while playing back any video? I've tried playing a video recorded by the Prime as well as videos I've downloaded. I get it through the speakers and with headphones.

Edit: Tested with the stock player, the MyNet Player, and MX Video Player.

Yeah, nothing here.

The sound output isn't very loud, but the quality I get from that one measly speaker ain't bad at all.

There are two speakers, just not much separation between them. Check out: http://www.anandtech.com/Gallery/Album/1619#25

So this is isolated then? Guess I'll have to do some more testing.

I have experienced that sound is sometimes decoded wrongly when HW acceleration is enabled. Try and play the videos in SW and see if the problem persists.

I can confirm this. The other day I played a new top gear episode to find it making a water noise and laggy playback. Took me a while and frustration, but it is easily fixed by changing the decoding method. You can do this in mx video player in the top right. I leave mine in s/w now...

Just note that SW mode will not, at least from my experience, decode 1080p satisfactory.
