OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 GNOME, TOTEM And BANSHEE No Sound On .mp4 And Quicktime?

Jul 17, 2010

I just did a fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 32bit GNOME on my notebook and everything runs fine...yet

But there is an issue with the sound playback on mp4's and quicktime (apple trailers) that I was not able to fix.

I added the Packman 11.3 repo via Yast -> Software Repositories -> Add... -> Community Repositories

Then I used zypper to get the related gstreamer-plugins ffmpeg faad vlc w32codec-all libmp4v2...

So far the media playback seem good, except the issue of "no sound with gstreamer related media players on quicktime and mp4"...

I set all available/related/installed packages to "Packman" (Yast -> Software Management), did zypper refresh + zypper up but I am simply not able to get sound from gstreamer...It works fine in VLC though!

Some google and forum research showed that it's an issue that has occurred over the recent years but I could not found a proper working solution.

If I run totem from the terminal I get the following output (plus a windows asking for permission to search for the required codec 'MPEG-4 AAC Decoder'...but it is not able to find one!):

# totem --debug --play TV-20100717-2030-1301.h264.mp4
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: Received SaveYourself(SmSaveLocal, !Shutdown, SmInteractStyleNone, !Fast) in state idle
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: Setting initial properties
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: Sending SaveYourselfDone(True) for initial SaveYourself
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: Received SaveComplete message in state save-yourself-done
(totem:6888): Totem-DEBUG: totem_playlist_add_one_mrl (): TV-20100717-2030-1301.h264.mp4 (null) (null)

The last Message is interesting "All missing plugins are blacklisted..." hmmm I did not blacklist any plugins...where can you see these blacklist? Is that the point, the plugin is there but blacklisted?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Or Little Sound In Banshee / Totem And Even Vlc

Oct 11, 2010

Just installed Open Suse 11.3 on my dual-boot PC ( and Ubuntu 10.10). Installation process of both OS goes well and smooth. But, unfortunately when I tried to play movies on both default applications (Banshee and Totem) in Open Suse Gnome 11.3, I've got the message to search for XVID MPEG-4 decoder. And till now, I still unable to search for it, because there's still no sound or a little sound on both players.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Banshee With 11.2 Gnome 2.28.0?

Dec 12, 2009

i have a fresh installation of opensuse 11.2 32-bit. my soundcard is terratec ewx 24-96. the card is detected in yast, and i can play test sound from the yast/sound panel. all volume sliders are set to maximum values (i have also double checked it in alsamixer).

i *can* hear the sound when doing this test from the gnome terminal:

speaker-test -dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

however to make this test work:

speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

i had to remove the asound-pulse.conf file. after removing this file the second test (speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav) works. removing this file also solved the problem of missing sound in videos videos played in firefox. the original contents of the asound-pulse.conf file was:

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
ctl.pulse {


the problem is i can't play any audio files (.wav or .mp3) in banshee.

i am sure the .wav file i use while testing is ok as i can play it with aplay.

when i try playing the .wav file, banshee does not complain about any missing codecs. the slider moves as the file is being played. i have also started banshee with the --debug option, but there were no errors in the output.

so my guess is that banshee is playing the files, it's just that it sends the data to the wrong device/channell or whatever it is.

all of the gstreamer packages i have installed are from the packman repository.

when i run gstreamer-properties, the only setting on the audio tab that gives me sound is: alsa (for the plugin) and default (for the device).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Won't Play Wmv Or Plays With No Sound?

May 31, 2010

I'm on Kubuntu 9.10, using Totem to play .wmv files, and certain of them cause the player to search for an audio codec (wmap?) that is never found. The video played without audio after that. So I followed advice to remove ~/.gstreamer-0.10, and reboot. A new .gstreamer-0.10 directory appeared, but now, Totem will not even play the video. It recognizes the audio codec however. The video codec shows up as "Windows Media..." but resolution is 0 x 0, and nothing ever appears in the window. I tried uninstalling and re-installing w32codecs and non-free-codecs, and removing the registry files under ~/gstreamer-0.10 and using gst-inspect to rebuild the database,
but nothing helps.

Oct 26, 2010

I then launch it and I doeble click on the video that is listed, the banshee logo flashes and nothing happens. Can someone tell me a way to resolve this, is there a way to resolve it.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Bugs On Suse 11.3/gnome?

Nov 2, 2010

I have a strange problem with sound, or maybe It's ok, I dunno. The problem is. The first launched program that uses sound, "takes over" the sound or smth, anyway, all programs, started next, just not play sound at all. The only solution is to close all programs using sound and start one I need to "listen". When I get into sound settings menu and see the list of programs using sound, I see just one started first.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Windows Media 9 Codec: No Sound In Mplayer / Totem / Vlc

May 15, 2010

how I fixed my sound problems, that happened only for "windows media 9" videos, after struggling for days changing the players etc. (using Ubuntu lucid 10.04 up to date)First search for "Ubuntu install w32codecs" (or w64codecs depending on your system bus width) and... install them as root or 'sudo'


$ sudo apt-get install w32codecs (or w64codecs)

After updating totem to the very latest version (May 12, 3 days ago) the problem happened to be likely from the source: gstreamer. So I tried to install the latest version of gstreamer, and it worked (the default one packaged in Ubuntu is dated 2008...).


install latest developer version

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Remove Banshee From Sound Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

I was playing with Banshee and installed the banshee-extension-soundmenu package to get the Banshee control in the Indicator Applet Sound Menu.

I had so many problems with Banshee crashing and using up my system resources that I decided to stop using it. I deselected the Sound Menu option from Banshee's Preferences>Extensions, then I uninstalled the banshee-extension-soundmenu package.

However after this the Sound Menu is still showing the Banshee control. Is there a way to get rid of it?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In Gnome - Installing Xine Backend ?

Jul 23, 2011

In Gnome and XFCE I always have a choppy music playback. The music is never played smoothly. There is always hesitations in the playback, as if the CPU is running on 100% and cannot cope with the system load.

One of the reasons for that is (in my case) Pulseaudio.

Another reason is Gstreamer. When I choose Gstreamer as backend in KDE, I get the same choppy musicplayback as in Gnome or XFCE. With Xine as backend in KDE, everything is fine. So my conclusion is: with Xine, the sound would be fine in Gnome too.

So, I wonder if it is possible to use Xine as backend in Gnome too. Does anyone have experience with running Xine in Gnome and/or XFCE? What do I need to do to set Gnome/XFCE, so that it uses Xine instead of Gstreamer?

Or is there maybe a special setting, I have to apply? In gstreamer-properties I have tried all possible settings, but this didn´t change anything to the quality of sound.

My experience is also: this choppy sound is hardware-independend. It doesn´t matter which hardware I use, the sound is choppy. It is also distro-independend. The sound is choppy in openSUSE (gnome and in KDE with applied Gstreamer backend), in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora with Gnome, Linux Mint with Gnome.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: How To Uninstall Totem In 11.4

I have 11.4 in a kiosk environment and only want VLC as my video plug-in. Since 11.4 FireFox crashes whenever it tries to using the application/x-VLC player type. I've tried disabling Totem, selecting VLC as the application/x-VLC type but nothing works. I'd just like to uninstall the Totem plugins completely but don't know how... or find a way to make VLC work in 11.4 with Firefox 4. I installed FF 4.0.1 but no change.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Totem Still Plays Nothing And Get No Thumbnails Either

Jul 25, 2010

SM player works yes, but how do i get the thumbnail previews. I did a fresh install of opensuse, i installed the updates they Yast told me to. I followed the guide precisely this time, using the command line method and encountered some problems. 4 files, asked to be broken or use obsolete at the point where i have to do the switch to packman repository. I chose use obsolete cuz i didn't want to break anything. When i tried to set an mkv to open in SMplayer the optionw asn't there, only banshee and totem. I opened Yast and it told me to install opensuse codec installer and another file can't remember) which i did. The option to open files in SMplayer, Xine etc came up then.

I'd like to get the thumbnails and I'd like to see Totem work as well. I know i don't need to, but considering that i downloaded the neccesary codecs, i expect it to work :/ or am i wrong with that assumption On a totally unrelated note, is there a way to increase the resolution of the bootloader? i'd like to be 1920x1200 to full my screen
