A week ago, my RASPBMC install updated itself. The TED talks add-on has had stuttering audio on analog and HDMI since. I just did a new RASPBMC install onto a brand-new SD card. The TED add-on has the identical problem. Other add-ons seem to work fine.

I just tried it on about a two month-old version of OpenElec and the add-on still works fine.
Welcome to the XBMC forums.

Do you experience similar problems with other video add-ons such as YouTube?
No, the other video add-ons are working fine (all I've tried anyway- YouTube, PBS, CBS News, and a number of others). The symptom is an approximately once per-second interruption in the audio (sort-of like a tick). The video continues to play normally, while the audio goes silent for maybe 10mSec each second with a perceptible "tick" sound. The audio is still intelligible, but it's an annoyance that seems to affect only the TED add-on.

EDIT: I just noticed that the video does seem to stop or slow down in sync with the audio problem. Since these are mostly people standing, delivering a talk, it was hard to tell.
If you haven't done so already, you may want to check or ask over on the primary thread for the TED Talks add-on. It's more likely that folks who are knowledgeable about this particular add-on will see your question.
Many thanks, artrafael! I will post there.
