problems with USB headset in fedora 18

HI

I have a logitech H390 USB headset and I If try to use it in Fedora 18 during any video reproduction (youtube, avi, etc) after selecting the headset in output sound devices, the audio  reproduces for around a second and then the video frezzes and audio mutes. If I setup the internal output audio again the video reproduces well and the audio listens perfectly.

Any ideas?

Regards.

Seams like a driver problem. Make sure that you are using pulse audio (this resolved the problems with Logitech USB headsets under Debian) .

su -
yum install pulseaudio

HI

Yum says that the latest version of pulseaudio is already installed (pulseaudio-2.1-6.fc18.x86_64).

Any other idea?

HI

I have found the following:

If I connect the USB headset before start playing any audio o video file, the audio  reproduces for around a second and then the video frezzes and audio mutes but, If I start the playing and then connect the USB headset everything works without problems until I disconnect the headset again.
