Poor sound quality in Windows host (hissing + lags). Was reported and fixed in head, see https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/5514.
Port version compiled according to this https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=239915 PR has no such problem.
Therefore it seems reasonable to update the current port sources at least to that commit to fix this sound issue.

Hmm... that's very usual. =-(
I really wish FreeRDP would just draw a hard line and release 2.0.0 already... -rc4 was released 2018/11/20 and there's been 1400+ commits since then, at what point is it really not an -rc anymore?
The unusual part is actually that the patch in the other PR fixed it, though -- that one doesn't actually update at all, it just brings in a single patch that I had submitted upstream to fix the build with urbdc. However, it -did- also bring in dbus-glib and libudev-devd; I could probably believe that something in there sufficiently changed the build such that you're using a differentr audio backend with the new dependencies added.
Sorry, my mistake. Yours were created long before the #5818 (the latter is dated January 8 2020). So it couldn't be the case.
I will try, though, with those patches, too.
Ok,my error here. It seems that all the difference in sound is due to enabling /disabling FAAD in additon to FFMPEG -- both in your and the standard version.
Still I wonder if #5818 mentioned in my post here is worth trying. They seem to have improved rdpsnd device quite a bit.
