Audio skips at beginning of playback when using PulseAudio JACK Sink and VLC
I am observing a stuttering behaviour of the VLC Media Player when using the PulseAudio JACK Sink on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The observation is exactly as described some years ago in https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?p=449456.
I filed a bug report with VLC at https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/24828, but they seem to believe that the issue is with PulseAudio (see comment 2 and 4 to that ticket).
I cannot decide where the problem might be, maybe it needs some cooperation to identify and fix. Could some PulseAudio developers please kindly comment on this issue, either here or directly to the VLC ticket, so some progress in fixing this somewhat disturbing stutter could be made?
