Thanks Brian. I converted everything to libFLAC and got the same results.
Here is some debug output
[34.270050] FLAC encoder set succeeded
[34.271183] write_callback, frame: 0, samples: 0
[34.271282] write_callback, frame: 0, samples: 0
[34.271313] write_callback, frame: 0, samples: 0
[34.271351] FLAC encoder initialization succeeded
[34.356251] write_callback, frame: 0, samples: 4096
[34.441582] write_callback, frame: 1, samples: 4096
[34.526905] write_callback, frame: 2, samples: 4096
[34.612213] write_callback, frame: 3, samples: 4096
[34.697556] write_callback, frame: 4, samples: 4096
[34.697594] SendChanDataMsg: 146
[34.782898] write_callback, frame: 5, samples: 4096
[34.782936] SendChanDataMsg: 12
[34.868168] write_callback, frame: 6, samples: 4096
[34.868210] SendChanDataMsg: 12
The audio is silence, so I believe there is a high compression ratio ((4096
x 5) + metadata) -> 146 bytes
[29.009735] HandleChanDataMsg, start: 1
[29.009773] SetAudioTimer, total: 1200, holdoff: 585
<process_single_frame called here>
[29.009792] read_callback, size: 146
[29.009809] error_callback, status: 0
[29.009821] read_callback, size: 146
[29.009834] read_callback, size: 146
[29.009844] read_callback, size: 146
[29.009855] read_callback, size: 146
... <calls read_callback forever>
I can send out some of the code fragments if needed.
