Send me the wav file and I will try to help you. Also, please send the encoded output from female.wav.
Have you looked at the output audio with a waveform editor, to see if you can find the clicking?
Have you tried running the sample build in the C64x simulator? That would give you a reference for file comparison. That build is setup for Quality 3 (8kbps). I just ran the simulator build at 8kbps, and the output sounds fine. I have not tried 5950bps before, but I just did, and I do not hear clicking. I will send you the simulator output files off-list.
By the way, the 16-bit char size that Jean-Marc refers to in the C5x, not the C6x, so that is not an issue here. You could have a problem in your sample handling, or maybe the bit handling, since 5950 does not produce an integer number of bytes per frame (1 bit short of 15 bytes).

I have tested Speex in fixed-point mode on my PC without clicking noise. As I mentioned below, I tested Speex in fixed-point
mode running natively on the ARM side of the DaVinci without click noise. I only get the clicking noise when running Speex
on the DSP side. For the TI C64+ DSP on the DaVinci processor, the TI-specific switches doesn't do much other than
defining the different Speex data types (spx_int16_t, spx_uint16_t, spx_int32_t, etc) and the static heap and scratch size
(in config.h and speex_types.h). How do I try "generic fixed-point"; is there a MACRO for generic fixed-point like
"GENERIC_FIXED_POINT". I guess I could try to see if it's an encoder issue (encode it on the DSP and decode it on the
ARM side before playing) vs a decoder issue (encode it on the ARM and decode it on the DSP before playing). Any other

Can you test your code with fixed-point on an x86 and see if you have
the same problem. You can also try the generic fixed-point without
TI-specific switches. The main thing I see that *could* cause problem is
the 16-bit chars in the bitpacker.
