dsp4.0 silent dsp4.>1 works

Sound plays with some quirks from Chrome browser
(http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html). If sound don't
work I click somewhere in progress bar. I guess then it switches to
some other channel, not 4.0.

VLC and mplayer don't play sound, they only play it if I start one
instance of mplayer/VLC and after that another one, so second one
takes second channel.

All channels above dsp4.0 works.

Does someone have idea what is happening here. I tried to find similar
problem on internet without success?

This are some maybe relevant data:
