It looks like your mp3's are at different sampling rates; ecasound
always assumes that it's being fed with data sampled at 44100Hz,
stereo. You have to tell it the truth using the -f switch. For
example, if you're playing a stereo mp3 that's been downsampled to 32 KHz
you would do:
# ecasound -f:16le,2,32000 -i:file.mp3
Hope this helps,
