OpenSUSE Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Works In DragonPlayer But NOT Kaffeine?
Dec 29, 2010
I have HDMI sound enabled by default in System Configuration (Music, Movies and System Sounds), but the only multimedia application that uses it is DragonPlayer. (System Sounds work fine also)Kaffeine still wants to use my INTEL card as does Amarok; VLC Player just complains that my AlsaLib file isn't up to date.I am running opensuse 11.3, KDE 4.5.90 (4.6 RC1) Kernel 2.6.34-7-0.5-desktop sound is outputting to a Samsung 42" 1080p TV.
Sound/Video card is an ATI RV710 (Radeon HD 4350). What does DragonPlayer do that the other three applications do not?How can I configure Kaffeine and VLC to output via the HDMIAlso since doing a system update to KDE 4.5.90 my screen blanks every ten minutes, I have tried to disable screen saver and screen power save in power management, however still i can't stop the system blanking every 10 minutes any clues?Finally DragonPlayer is now crashing after every video has finished playing before i can start the next
I just bought a Creative Soundblaster X-fi Surround 5.1 Pro, and I'm having trouble getting it to work with flash or vlc. I hear audio from Amarok (audio player) and DragonPlayer (video player), but when I use vlc or flash it just comes out of my onboard speakers.
I have a Zotac Mag Atom computer with Nvidia ION graphics. This computer i use as a HTPC hooked up to my 42" LG flatscreen via HDMI. The problem i have is that after have installed de correct graphics drivers the graphics chip only sends picture over HDMI whilst there allso is going sound.
Updated Kubuntu 9.10 > Kubuntu 10.04.I have no HDMI sound andclone mode HDMI video.Computer is connected to LCD monitor with VGA and TV with HDMI.oth are using onboard hardware.HDMI audio and video were both working fine with 9.10.

I did a clean install of 11.3 and everything went good but i have a problem. There is no sound when i try to watch a movie in VLC, Kaffeine, SMPlayer and xine. But when i open the movie (.avi format) with Dragon player it plays as it should be. I have sound when i test the output in KDE system settings and i listen to music as i write this message. I tried with Xine and GStreamer output but the problem stays. I have all the multimedia codecs that are needed installed. Here is my repo list:
I've installed openSuse 11.3 recently and the sound card is ok because I can play audio with KsCD but there's no sound at all with any of the other players or browsers. Video now is ok after installing Packman Repository etc, but still no sound.
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?
I put a hdmi cable on my note, I turned on the TV and ran to is a beauty but when I turned on the video ... the sound did not come. I went to System -> Preferences -> Sound and changed the output to "Digital Stereo (HDMI) output. And no sound came out. The boxes of note works perfectly.
Having some problems with HDMI-Audio on my HTPC: I don't get sound out of HDMI port! For system info look there: Sysprofile
OS is Suse11.3 64Bit with KDE now! At "System-Settings/Multimedia/Audio Output" there are the following devices in the given order: HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev1 Analog) HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev2 Digital) HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI (HDMI Audio)
That's consistent with the connector layout of the mainboard. Playing "Test sound" while marked the HDMI Audio is not causing any output with HDMI, while analog works just fine!
I also installed the nVidia prop drivers with the packet manager. In YAST there is one card found in the sound section:: Idex=0 and Card Model=MCP79 High Definition Audio
I am attempting to set up a machine to use as a movie/video viewer. When I connect this machine using an HDMI cable to an HDMI TV, I get video, but no audio. No beeps, no system sounds, no noise of any kind.
I've run the following mixers and set all volume controls to maximum:Gmixer, Kmix, AlsaMixer and pavucontrol.
When playing a video, pavucontrol meter shows signal from the application and shows output signal to the HDMI device, but where that output is going to is beyond me.
Using the Sound setup of Yast, I attempt to play a test sound on the HDMI, nothing.
Built in Audio adapter works fine. I have disabled it in pavucontrol in attempts to get the sound directed to the HDMI output, but, silence is all I get. I've also tried enabling and disabling simultaneous output with no difference in results.
I've tried a few suggestions from other posts with the same issue (creating /etc/asoundrc.conf, modifying /etc/pulse/default.pa), but no joy.
If I boot up that other operating system (starts with a W), all sounds (system & video) show up on the HDMI input with no adjustments needed.
Why must this be so difficult?

All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).
I am having an issue with Kaffeine. It recognizes my DVB tuner fine and I can watch television but the only problem is that I have no sound. Videos play fine, in Kaffeine, I can see the picture and hear the sound, but when I view television, the sound is quiet. I think that there is some issue with unusual sound codecs being used here in New Zealand, as I had a lot of problems trying to play my recorded tv programs in other software, when I was a Windows user, I would often get the picture but no sound. Mythtv works fine for me, I get sound and picture no worries, it's just with Kaffeine I have the sound issues. The audio channel is greyed out, when I click on a channel and then click on edit. I suspect that this may mean that the sound codec that Freeview television uses, in New Zealand, may not be supported in Kaffeine.
I am using ubuntu karmic. I log into gnome, but I have kaffeine installed. I find I can't play videos with mp4a mpeg4 audio in kaffeine. The video plays fine, but their is no sound. When I use vlc it plays fine and the codec information reveals mp4a.
I think it might be related to xine as the phonon backend is xine. I try opening the file in xine, and there is also no video. When I try to change the phonon backend to gstreamer, there is no sound for anything. I have libxine1-ffmpeg, libmpeg4ip-0, and libfaad0 installed, though I dunno if they affect this.
I want to use kaffeine rather than vlc because I want to use kaffeine for dvb viewing and recording. In my area, it seems they are broadcasting mp4a instead of mpeg2 or what not.
Have installed mythtv to kbuntu (32 bit) and configured the backend with HDHomerun and receive video but no sound The ] key brings op the volume bar but sits at 0 and will not adjust. However caffeine and he HDhomerun conf GUI viewer play the video and sound perfectly.
setting up the backend I never saw an entry for alsa or mixer, it appears somethimg is missing there for HDHomerun, although those are present when I added an entry for a Hauppauge 950Q USB tuner. Can not get this source to work as yet so have not seen the sound problem there.
The speaker test speaker-test -c 2
also works as do the login/logout sounds and the test in system settings/multimedia.

I have quite a strange problem with Skype and Opensuse. First problem was that when I used microphone on Audigy 4 (from some reason recognised as Audigy 2) the sound which people received from me was very chirpy. This problem was solved easily, I just turned my on-board sound system on and started using micorphone from integrated card. And here comes my weird problem. Microphone works all right, but only for short period. After some time after I start talking to someone on Skype the microphone turns itself off, but I can still hear my interlocutors. The only solution is to go to Yast and restart sound system or to restart whole computer, both of which are not real solutions, but well, they sort of work. I'm using Opensuse 11.2 x64.
I spent a few days trying to make audio work on my TV connected via HDMI to a PC. The speaker test used by the sound preferences was dead, as was MPlayer. I managed to find a solution for MPlayer, giving the option "-ao alsa:device=hdmi", as specified in this article:So, basically ALSA can see all my devices. This is the output of aplay -l:Quote:

I have a newly set up computer with 11.4 64 bit. Intel Core i5, under Sound Configuration in YaST I have '5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio'and 'nVidia Corporation'I have built in speakers in my screen, connected via HDMI. I hear no sound from any source, neither via HDMI, nor via a separate sound cable connected to the sound connector on the back of the computer nor via the head phone jack on the front.
I've already went thorough "Check your multimedia problem in ten steps" and "Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide", but still no luck. When I try to play video Kaffeine just throw out big red cross and then nothing palys.

Sound keeps coming from laptop's speakers, even when HDMI is connected to an external TV.
I've tried to fix this issue using both Pulse Audio Volume Control and KDE's System Settings -> Multimedia -> Audio and Video Settings. No luck. I've read several topics around, but there are plenty of variables to consider.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working fine except I have no sound. When I use the command 'aplay -D hw:0,0 somefile.wav', I can get sound through headphones attached to the headphone jack. But I can't get any sound through the speakers. This is a dual boot desktop and the sound works fine under Windows, so no problems with hardware. The PC monitor is connected through a hdmi cable and I would need sound through the speakers.

I recently purchased a new video card a GeForce 550 Ti, but I haven't been able to get sound working over HDMI.
I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu (11.04) and have installed the proprietary drivers through Additional Drivers.
The card is being picked up by alsa and I've configured Ubuntu to use HDMI in sound preferences:
When I check alsamixer this is what I see:
ALSA reports that version 1.0.23 is installed, although I thought 11.04 came with version 1.0.24?
I've tried purging ALSA and reinstalling it but it didn't help. Is there anything I can do? Does anyone know if this card is supported by ALSA properly yet? I hate the thought of having to go to Windows to get this working
