OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Audio Choppy - Can't Play Any Audio With Amarok When Desktop Effects Are Enabled

Jun 7, 2011

to start off, i'll post the specs of the machine:

dell inspiron e1505
3.2 gb ram
1.86 ghz intel core duo
ati x1400 gfx
opensuse 11.4 kde 32 bit.

okay, here are the details: can't play any audio with amarok when desktop effects are enabled because the minute a window is moved, it will distort the audio. even when disabling desktop effects, some applications still cause this. can't play videos videos even with desktop effects disabled because of the same reason.

i just switched from ubuntu and when i ran version 11.04, i had to disable kms to do anything. i tried on opensuse 11.4 and the audio was flawless but the gfx went all to hell.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Stream Videos Off The Internet But Amarok Can't Seem To Play Audio

Jun 17, 2010

I'm a new openSUSE 11.2 user and lately I've been getting repeated notifications from KDE saying that "the audio playback device HDA Intel(AD198x Analog) does not work" I get audio if I stream videos off the Internet but Amarok can't seem to play audio.

OpenSUSE :: Amarok Won't Play Audio?

Aug 7, 2010

I've just installed suse 11.3 and installed the necessary mp3/ogg etc packages for Amarok. But amarok just keeps crashing when i try to play an audio cd, mp3 or radio stream. something about segmentation fault, but not enough data for a bug report. Kaffeine plays audio like a charm, but amarok seems only able to crash. I really hate any not working programs on my computer, so what can i do to solve this?

solving meaning:

1) get rid of amarok, but keep kaffeine playing every format.
2) fix amarok so it plays audio.

I am really a noob to linux and not a big fan of the terminal.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Error - Audio Codec Missing And Doesn't Play The Audio

Jan 30, 2011

I want to listen to this audio file: [URL] but my real player gold desn play it, it says that there is a codec 28_8 missing, I go to relaplayer page, download the last release available for linux systems, but the message is the same : audio codec missing and doesn't play the audio.

I havev tried to play the audio with smplayer (not luck), vlc can play the audio but the pause button doesn't work so I have to listen the entire audio all the time I stop it playing. Is there any audio player capable od reproducing in the proper way this audio in ubuntu? No one of my video players totem, smplayer, realplayer or vlc are capable of playing this video: [URL]

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Play DVD Or Audio CD Using VLC

Aug 30, 2010

I am a longtime Fedora user. Moved over to OpenSUSE 11.2 after Fedora 13 won't install on my old hardware. I am unable to play DVD or Audio CD using VLC. I have OpenSUSE 11.2 with Gnome desktop installed.

After a fresh install, I followed the steps in this FAQ:


Thereafter I tried to do RedDwarf's 10 point multimedia check. But it seems like #5 doesn't return results as expected and #6 fails for some packages.

r2d2@linux-vp8l:~> #1 check if missing dependencies

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Play Audio Cds - Either It Does Not Load

Apr 23, 2009

I run opensuse 11.1 64 bit with KDE, and I have never been able to get the CD player working. Either it does not load, or once in awhile it also shows a message saying something like "cd player not configured", - which is odd because Suse is able to use it for installing additional programs and such from the Suse Dvd. I am also quite new in this, my first Opensuse distribution is the current.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio (ASLA) Is Choppy - VirtualBox

Dec 4, 2010

I am having audio issues in my host operating system (Ubuntu 10.10 64bit) when running my Virtual machine (Windows Server 2008 R2) through VirtualBox. At the moment I need the virtual machine to run all the time my issue comes when trying to play a movie on the host OS, video is fine but audio is choppy to the point of not understanding what is being said.

I used gstreamer to test the audio outputs while the VM was running, ALSA is choppy but Pulseaudio is clear. I then change VLC to pulseaudio and I get no output what so ever. The VM does not need sound so I have it disabled in VirtualBox's settings (I have tried enabled, same issue).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Playing Audio Cd's In Kaffeine But It Does Not Play Properly - No Sound

May 8, 2011

I have just installed 11.4 64bit and duly followed the sticky guide for getting the required multimedia files installed. I find I have a problem with playing audio cd's the only program which will play an audio cd is Kaffeine but it does not play properly - it plays a few bars then silence, plays a few bars then silence and I can find no way of getting it to play without interruption. There are no sound problems with Kaffene when using it to play digital tv or dvd films. I have tried KsCD, Amarok, Mplayer, SMPlayer, and GNOME MPlayer none of which can I get to play a CD. With Amarok there does not appear to be a setting to play a CD as soon as it is put in the drive it would appear that you have to generate a playlist first, I can show the list of tunes on the CD but that's a far as it goes they will not add to a playlist or play.

Have just found the player Clementine which apparently is based on Amarok. Although not providing a direct play facility I was able to load the cd to the playlist then play the tunes. This may be a clue to my problems in that I noticed that it had to mount the player first. Is there a setting for auto mounting?Ideally I would like to put an audio cd in my player and have it play automatically without me having to do anything. Is this facility available in 11.4 and if so which program do I need to install?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.1 Updates To Pulse Audio In Gnome Improve Audio Functionality ?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm thinking of installing openSUSE-11.1 Gnome on a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M laptop because the wireless in Gnome is much more user friendly than KDE3/KDE4 in openSUSE-11.1. The idea is to give this laptop to my 84-year old mother and things need to 'just work' for her (she currently has a desktop running openSUSE-11.1 KDE3 that uses a WIRED interface to the web).

I refuse to update this laptop to openSUSE-11.2 nor 11.3 (nor other recent distributions) because every kernel update after the 2.6.27 kernel has broken the Intel i855GM graphics drivers for that laptop. There are many bug reports and none have fixed the problem for this Fujitsu-Siemens implementation of the i855GM graphics.

Hence I am looking at Gnome.

I booted the laptop to a Gnome openSUSE-11.1 liveCD and wireless is easy and works great. But audio is very very VERY bad. It is incredibly user unfriendly and it does NOT work well. I assume that is because pulse audio in openSUSE-11.1 was very immature.

I note these updated packages in the openSUSE-11.1 update repository:


So my question is, did the updates to pulse audio (in the openSUSE-11.1 update repository) fix the pulse audio situation? Are there ANY helpful views on this?

Currently my wife is using this laptop with KDE-4.4.4 (and openSUSE-11.1) so I can't just install Gnome and play with it without taking the laptop away from her for a while (note the hard drive is too small for a dual boot of KDE/Gnome).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Desktop Effects Cannot Be Enabled?

Debian Multimedia :: Audio Devices Not Enabled?

Sep 18, 2010

On a fresh install of squeeze (with the exception of some installed video firmware and the latest updates from the repos) from the kde cd.

System is running an ASUS Sk8V motherboard with onboard sound, also a SB Audigy 2 ZS sound card. Speakers are plugged into the sound card.

Sound worked fine before in Lenny except I had to create /etc/modprobe.d/sound with the following to get the system to prioritize the SB card over the onboard audio

options snd-emu10k1 index=0
options snd-via82xx index=1

I've done the same with the new install, and still no audio.

I followed the troubleshooting steps from the FAQ forum, but am stuck on the end, which suggests doing the following:

The following string needs to be added to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file
options snd-hda-intel model=YOUR_MODEL

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lenovo T400 - Intel Video Card And Compiz - Desktop Effects Cannot Be Enabled

Apr 4, 2010

I'm running Karmic Koala 64 bit on my Lenovo T400 laptop with switchable graphics having both Intel and ATI video cards. I've set my bios to use the intel card only and turned the automatic switching off. So far so good, but I'd like to turn on compiz for basic window animations. When I try to start compiz by selecting


"Appearance Preferences" -> "Visual Effects" -> "Normal"

I get an error message saying "Desktop effects cannot be enabled"


"System" -> "Administration" -> "Hardware Drivers"

doesn't show any new drivers that could be installed. This was working out of the box when I first installed Karmic Koala a few month ago, but things got messed up when I installed the restricted drivers for my ATI card. Now I can enable compiz if I switch to ATI from my bios settings and install the drivers but I don't want to use it due to high power consumption and I've removed the ATI drivers.

Here is my xorg.conf file:


Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"

General :: Upgrade To 10.04 Opt Drives Fail To Play Or Show Audio Cds On The Desktop?

Aug 6, 2010

First my setup: Hardware Genuine AMD Athlon - 512 mg Mem - Nvida card & latest drivers - 80gb & 40gb drives - dvd read only & cdrw.

OS: Ubuntu 10.04 - tried standard desktop then the alt version now back to standard desktop.

Problem: Both optical drives recognise data disks and show them on the desktop. The dvd drive recognises any dvd and not only shows it on the desktop but also flashes up a requester box asking me which program I would like to use to play it. Nothing happens when I insert a music cd in either drive. Rhythm Box Music Player does not show a music cd available to play but does however show my iTouch when I connect it via usb. Btw iTouch is shown on the desktop when connected. What have I done: Fstab had no entries for either drive so I've researched and entered a line for each.The dvd fs is entered as iso9660,udf. The cdrw is using "proc" as a file system as it's the only thing that will show as mounted in Mtab. All else fails. Both drives show up in System/Administration/Disk Utility (irrespective of Fstab entries), therefore the system can see them. Also investigating through the Terminal shows both drives. how to listen to music cds on ubuntu 10.04. I wish to save my music then upload the same to my iTouch. It all worked so well in 8.04.
