Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In KDE With Phonon / Resolve This?

Sep 25, 2010

Sound works great for non kde programs such as firefox and vlc. Amarok and dragon player however refuse to play with sound. Sound doesn't work either when testing it in the 'Multimedia' section. I have no pulseaudio installed. Any ideas where I can look for possible solutions? code...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound / Phonon 'forgot' Sound Cards?

Aug 10, 2010

I recently had a brain cramp and told Phonon to forget my sound card(s). I have an on-board card and I have installed an old-school Sound Blaster CT-4832. I have followed the steps listed in the comprehensive sound trouble shooting, and still no luck!

gentle@Desktop:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Disable A Sound Device In Phonon?

Jan 10, 2010

I have two sound cards active on this machine and they both work fine. However I would like to blacklist one card from being used for audio capture in KDE, because I am already using it outside of KDE for timed recording. The problem is that when I start amarok while timed recording is going on, it attempts to probe the card and this causes the recording to abort.

In Configure desktop > Multimedia, I can see the two cards. I can alter the priority but the Remove button is greyed out. So I can't remove a card from phonon.

Searching around for where phonon stores its configuration led me to ~/.config/ This certainly looks like the info I was trying to edit, but it's encoded in some way code...

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Pausing Amarok With Phonon-backend-vlc Kills Sound?

Mar 29, 2011

Play a song in Amarok and then press the space bar to pause. Press the space bar again to resume and Amarok starts playing again with the status bar moving and the timer counting down, but no sound. If I move to the next song, sound starts working again. Or if I double click on a different song, sound works. If I use the xine backend, the problem goes away. I'm using Amarok-2.4 and KDE 4.6.1.

Debian Multimedia :: Sometimes Phonon Is Listing So Many Devices

Aug 2, 2015

I've encountered this problem twice. Sometimes Phonon is listing so many devices like this: [URL] ....

Usually there are just two devices like this: [URL] ....

When there are so many devices listed the volume control by using volume keys is different. It's usually up or down by 5%, but if the condition is like that the volume not up or down by 5%.

I've never encountered this kind of problem in other KDE distros. I'm using Jessie.

Ubuntu Installation :: Phonon - No Sound After KDE 4.4 Upgrade

Feb 26, 2010

I was a happy user before I upgraded to KDE 4.4 in my Kubuntu 9.10. Basically I added ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports to sources list as it's said here: [URL]. After I refreshed the packages list, there appeared equally big two lists with new packages, normal packages and so named as "blocked", if I remember correctly. Anyway, I selected normal ones and did update.

Now every boot I get this kind of warnings:
No sound in any application, except in Multimedia settings:
Here I hear music if I select a device and press Test.
I decided to do another test, I installed Kubuntu 9.10 in VMware and upgraded to KDE 4.4, the same problem. I don't want to reinstall the whole system.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In 10.04 / Resolve This?

May 15, 2010

i'm having choppy sound in 10.04. i didn't have it in 9.10 and i don't know enough about how it works to try to fix it.

here are some things i have noticed, however.

1. the choppy sound is present in a 64bit and 32bit install. at first i thought it may just be a 64bit issue so i reinstalled to 32bit and it is still present.

2. it does not seem to matter what media type i am playing. i notice it most with videos from videos and music from pandora.

3. it seems to occur more often at intense moments of music. i'm not really sure how to describe it, but it is typically the climax of a song where it is a little louder and more intense.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Have No Sound From Speakers - Resolve This?

Dec 1, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 with Wubi (took forever to figure out how to get the wubi.exe to recognize the 10.10 iso) and I don't have sound coming from my speakers. Audio works fine with headphones, but output from speakers is non-existent.

I get sound when I boot into Windows 7, so I doubt it had something to be with the actual speakers. I'm really new to Ubuntu (but loving it!) so troubleshooting is a little difficult for me, especially with terminal commands.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Crackling / Resolve This?

Apr 30, 2011

I've been trying to configure my revo R3700 over the last day and I'm finally there. HDMI sound is working apart from the fact that all sound is crackling. Sound is working through analogue without issue its just HDMI that is distorted

I initially did the command

aplay -Dplughw:1,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav

Which produced no crackling or distortion. I then tried a mp3 which was distorted and crackling, upon trying the same command as above later on, this too started to be distorted

Searched through the forum and theres a few people that have had this issue and have resolved it simply by edited alsamixer however this isn't working.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Configure Phonon's Xine Backend?

Jun 24, 2010

I have installed smplayer, and configured it to use the code...

Kaffeine (and dolphin's video preview) seem to use phonon's xine backend, and I can't find out what video output it uses. I'm guessing its plain old xv as it seems accelerated but turnes into a blue square when I move the window.

How do I tell the xine backend to use the same vo as smplayer?

OS 11.2 64 bit, KDE 4.4.4 (Factory)

(ps: I have a 'legacy' ATI graphics chip, xpress 200M working with the opensource radeon driver, which is brilliant btw).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: KDE 4 Phonon Xine-backend Configuration

Sep 6, 2010

So I have made an interesting Discovery with regards to using KDE4 Kaffeine version 1 and Dolby Digital 5.1. The basic problem seems that there is no way to configure the Phonon xine Backend in KDE 4 for use with Kaffeine version 1. There is however, a xine-config file located at:


There appears to be no GUI way to change the default xine configuration (for use with KDE 4 applications) and while you can do so manually, the options seem bewildering, at least to me.

When you run xine-ui or Kaffeine/KDE3 there is an option to adjust the xine audio configuration using a GUI. Any changes made here are ignored by KDE 4 applications. As luck would have it you can copy the old xine configuration (adjusted by Kaffeine/KDE3) over the new one for Kaffeine in KDE4. The old text file configuration is located at:


If you were to use the old Kaffeine/KDE3 to adjust your xine audio configuration and then copy this file to the Kaffeine Version 1 KDE4 location, those changes should be used by the new version 1 Kaffeine in KDE 4. After Kaffeine/KDE3 audio settings work as you desire, open up a terminal session and make the following file copy. You must overwrite or rename the old configuration file for backup.

cp ~/.xine/config ~/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config

Since this new xine configuration is in the new Kaffeine version 1 KDE4 location, it may only modify how the new Kaffeine works and nothing else running in KDE4, but it is still an interesting find.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stuttering In Amarok From Phonon-backend-xine?

Mar 5, 2010

In Karmic's Amarok 2.2, when you pause and then play, the sound usually stutters a few times before it starts playing smoothly. I originally thought this was a pulseaudio issue, as stuttering problems have been reported with pulse, but that wouldn't explain why sound is fine in mplayer, audacious, vlc, dragon player, and virtualbox. Only amarok has this problem. I found the cause of the problem: phonon-backend-xine. These steps will get rid of the stuttering problem:

1. Install phonon-backend-mplayer. You can get it from Rog131's PPA: [URL]

2. In Multimedia and Sound Configuration, which you can reach through amarok's Playback settings, on the Backend tab, click the arrows to move mplayer up above xine.

3. Quit and restart amarok.

There are some tradeoffs for good sound. Amarok seems to have some bugs when the sound backend is not xine, and bookmarks and OSD are broken when this backend is playing the sound. When you quit Amarok, it can't bookmark your place so it doesn't restart from where you last were, and after the track changes once, the OSD when you hover over the tray icon only says "Amarok - No track playing." You have to open Amarok to find that info. Are there any settings I can access for phonon-backend-xine that could fix the stuttering issue? The problems with the mplayer backend are minor compared with xine's bad sound, but I would like nice sound, OSD, and bookmarking.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC / Phonon Randomly Drops Audio Stream

May 24, 2011

I have an Asus EEPC that I use in my classroom whenever I want to show a movie. I normally keep all of my educational videos as ISOs, and then simply move one over to the netbook when needed. I normally use VLC for playback. With the latest upgrade, however, I'm having a few difficulties. No matter what DVD I choose to show with VLC, the audio stream will randomly drop every 10 minutes or so whenever I am using KDE as my desktop environment. In order to re-enable the audio stream, I have to either completely stop playback OR reconfigure the audio output in VLC.

(It does not matter if I change it right back to what it was, I will get audio for another 10 minutes or so). I've also noticed that if I pause playback, sometimes the audio will not re-enable when unpaused. Strangely, however, I do not have this behavior at all when I'm using Gnome as the desktop environment. I get seamless audiovisual playback and never have to fiddle with the audio. Is this a documented problem in Phonon somewhere? How I might better backtrace what's going on?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Phonon Doesn't Accept Standard Capture Device

Mar 22, 2011

I have two sound devices, an internal audio device on my motherboard and an external USB devices, which came with my headset. After upgrading to 11.4, the microphone on my headset ceased to work with my softphone. As it turned out, the softphone used the standard input device, which was defined in the Phonon tab in the KDE System Settings. Unfortunately, when I put the USB Device on top of the default input stack, it doesn't stay there. When I apply the changes and leave the Phonon tab or even enable "Show advanced devices " the stack always resets to its initial order. I was unable to find any kind of config file where Phonon saves this settings.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Phonon Crashes When Advancing A Track In Amarol / Solve It?

Jun 25, 2010

I have experienced that Phonon will crash occasionally when I advance to the next track in Amarok. After Phonon crashes, Amarok can't play sound. The only remedy appears to be restarting.

I would like to avoid the crashing. I have heard that Phonon and PulseAudio do not work well together. I would like to know how to disable PulseAudio when using Amarok. Any hints?

I am using the Xine backend in Amarok. In the Config Phonon window, I have configured Phonon's hardware preferences to work directly with the sound hardware on the MoBo first. I have deprioritized PulseAudio to the bottom of the hardware list. Unfortunately the "remove" button is grayed out in the Phonon config window.

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 - the Karmic Koala w/ Gnome so I don't want to uninstall PulseAudio.

Debian Multimedia :: NetworkManager Won't Resolve DNS

Feb 22, 2011

I'm having this problem on two desktop machines running Squeeze with GNOME. NetworkManager simply will not resolve DNS. In network settings, it picks up my router under "DNS Servers". However, applications such as Iceweasel will not load domain names, though the IP addresses do work. From command line, DNS is working fine.

I realise I can fix this by adding my ISP's DNS servers to resolv.conf, but I'm looking for a proper solution to this problem, as I have experienced it before and probably will again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok With Phonon Gstreamer Backend Cannot Play Internet Streams.

Apr 29, 2011

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

I am on Kubuntu Natty 11.04 64 bit.

I try to play some internet streams but when gstreamer is used as the phonon backend, Amarok never plays them. With Xine or VLC backend looks like I have no problems...

Exactly below you can find two of the streams I am trying.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Output One Playback Stream To Multiple Devices Simultaneously With The Current PulseAudio / Phonon Setup?

Jun 9, 2011

Is it possible to output one playback stream to multiple devices simultaneously with the current PulseAudio / Phonon setup? The PulseAudio mixer only has radio buttons to choose one device per playback stream. I believe the hardware is capable of this, since I remember doing that before we had PulseAudio. How can I duplicate an audio stream?

Here's one application scenario: I am travelling with my family, all crammed in small hotel room. My wife and me want to watch a movie on my laptop without waking up our kids. I just happen to have one analogue headphone available and one wireless USB headset with me. (Of course, the low tech solution is to bring an 3,5mm Y-cable to attach two analogue headsets, but I would really love to use the USB headset together with the analogue one.)

Another similar thing that bugs me is that my laptop's built-in speakers now always seem dead when an analogue headphone is plugged in. This is mostly what one wants, and before PulseAudio, one had to manually switch them off which was generally annoying. However, the downside is for example with notifications.

For example, before PulseAudio, I could configure Skype to always ring over the laptop's built-in speakers, regardless of whether the analogue headphones were plugged in. This is no longer possible, since PulseAudio does not distinguish between built-in speakers and built-in analogue port any more, while old Alsa did. So in my office, where some analogue headphones are plugged into the docking station, I never hear Skype ringing if I don't wear the headphones.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Iceweasel And Chromium - Otherwise Sound Works

Sep 8, 2011

I can play sound files with aplay, esdplay, and vlc, but I don't get any sound from iceweasel and chromium.

I installed a squeeze base system (without gnome and without the standard system utilities), then added (using --no-install-recommends) xserver-xorg-core, xdm, fluxbox, alsa-base, alsa-utils, alsa-oss, iceweasel, chromium-browser. Here I checked for sound and there was none from the browsers. I have since installed vlc, esound-clients, alsaplayer-esd, gstreamer0.10-alsa, and other software that didn't look sound-related and didn't change the symptoms.

Setting ICEWEASEL_DSP to "aoss" or "esddsp" doesn't help. Neither does "chmod -R 777 /dev/{audio,dsp,midi,mixer,snd}". snd-pcm-oss and snd-mixer-oss are loaded. Both my account and root are in group "audio". Running the browsers as root doesn't help.

This is the output of chromium:

In case it makes any difference, all of this happens in a qemu-kvm virtual machine with an emulated es1370 soundcard. Same with sb16 soundcard.

I would prefer not to install everything vaguely related to sound in the repositories in the hope of things fixing themselves. That's just ugly, plus I have only 200MB free space left.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In KDE - VLC/mplayer/firefox Still Have Sound

May 26, 2010

I made a recent update to my Squeeze system and got this weird problem. mplayer, VLC and firefox (.....) all have sound. But when I try to run Amarok I get nothing. I looked into the Multimedia panel on the KDE4 system settings, and its not showing any devices at all. Previously it used to show HDA Intel etc., etc. Now the entries are completely blank. How do I get KDE to recognize my hardware? Shouldnt it pick things up automatically?
