OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound From Amarok 2.3.1 But VLC, SMplayer Is Fine

Aug 15, 2010

I have a weird problem where the playing any track from Amarok results in no sound being heard from the speakers. However, from everywhere else - YaST audio configuration, openSUSE startup, VLC, SMplayer et al - the sound is heard fine. I have no clue as to how I can go about fixing this. Hoping someone could assist me with this. I have a Dell Inspiron 1520. Here's the link to the output of [URL] My Smolts system profile: Show Box my /var/log/messages keeps recording this:


pulseaudio[4866]: alsa-sink.c: Error opening PCM device front:0: Device or resource busy

whenever I try to play something on Amarok I'm running on openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.5 ( though this problem existed on KDE 4.4 as well).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound On Amarok Or SMPlayer - Missing

Nov 28, 2009

I have 11.2 installed on a dual core 64 bit system. The sound works when I use Yast to look at the sound device and select "play test sound". I haven't gotten anything out of Amarok or SMPlayer. I followed the guide listed in other posts to update the system although I could not seem to solve all the dependences. When I use SMPlayer to play an MP3 file, I get a message saying that I am missing

I tried the following: Code: ldd /usr/bin/mplayer | grep libdirect => not found This seems to be the only missing library. The interesting thing is that if I search my system for libdirect, I find that I have Is this a newer rev or a different library because of my platform?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound With SMPlayer / VLC OK

Mar 13, 2011

I have been using VLC to play downloaded files which have been .flv because that was the player that started when the files were selected and it just worked. The sound device is just shown as "default" but I have no idea what that is.I have just downloaded another file and when I clicked on it SMPlayer opened and started to play but there was no sound.

Wondered why SMPlayer started instead of VLC and saw that the newest file was .mp4, however SMPlayer doesn't give any sound with the .flv videos either, on the other hand VLC plays .mp4 files too with sound.However when I searched for the suggested file I couldn't find it but before I go any further, is this a real problem or could it be due to having the sound turned off from the keyboard? .

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound Using Amarok?

Apr 30, 2011

I added the Packman repository and installed ASF modules for Amarok. Since that point Amarok didn't make a noise, although it actually played music.

- Speakers aren't muted
- sound works fine using banshee and pretty much everything else
- so drivers are up to date

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound With Amarok/LinDVD

Jan 1, 2010

After upgrading my Lenovo T61 to openSUSE 11.2 (64 bit)/KDE 4.3.1.playing mp3/Internet radio ( or DVDs using VLC works fine.When trying to play mp3s/ with Amarok 2.1.1 or when trying to play DVDs using LinDVD there is no sound at all although each player appears to be processing each of the media correctly. When testing sound output with the Amarok settings (backend Xine) I get test sound output with these device types

- HDA Intel (AD198xAnalog)
- Pulse Audio

But none with

- HDA Intel (AD198xDigital)
- HDA Intel, AD198x Digital(IEC (S/PDIF) Digital Video Output).

Could it be that some other sound server, such as ALSA etc is blocking/competing with the audio hardware? How do I get Amarok/LinDVD to output sound?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Disappearing In Smplayer?

Jun 5, 2010

I recently upgraded mplayer and smplayer to fix a bug with subtitle rendering in the repos version. From the PPA/SVN I have

This is SMPlayer v. 0.6.9 (SVN r3447)

However, sound keeps disappearing in smplayer and won't come back until I reboot. Sound is still present in all other players including mplayer.

Running smplayer from the command line gives no output so I don't know what night be wrong. Volume is at max and not muted.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound From Movies Out Of Smplayer But Nothing Else?

Jan 26, 2011

Had ubuntu 10.10, sound worked fine. wiped that, installed xubuntu 11.04, sound worked fine with banshee. had some stability issues, so i then installed xubuntu 10.10. now, on the fresh install, i only have sound from smplayer when playing videos. NO sound from banshee, vlc(videos or otherwise), parole, or exaile. neither when IEC959 is active no disabled.

here is a screenshot of alsamixer showing that volume is up, and un-muted. and the xfce4-mixer as well.however, the upper right panel indicator looks like a mute symbol, or at least a no volume symbol. ive tried removing, purging, then re-installing banshee multiple times. ive checked the other sound cards listed in xfce4-mixer; they are all un-muted (found this on a couple forums, fixed this problem for a few people, but not me!). What can I do?

OpenSUSE :: Smplayer And Vlc Nuttiness - Sound And Time Counter Stop

Sep 5, 2010

i'm running 11.2 kde 4.3. i'm having issues with both smplayer and vlc. first, when i play an audio cd through smplayer, it pauses every 14-15 second. by pause i mean that the sound and time counter stops, and i actually hear the disc drive make a sound, the *typical disc-read sound. i tried a few discs, in case it was a specific cd; same thing for all. i also looked through the preferences to see if there was a setting that addressed it; nothing i see seems to address the issue.

playing the same cds in kscd works fine. but kscd really sucks....excuse me, it really really sucks. with vlc, whenever i start vlc, it will appear in my taskbar, but there is no other sign of its existence besides this. no system tray icon, no gui or any other sign of its presence besides the taskbar.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound After Starting Amarok?

Feb 9, 2010

If I run Amarok right after ubuntu starts, and then start a movie, there is no sound. It doesn't matter that the playback in Amarok is paused, stopped or active, there is no sound in the other player. Even if i exit Amarok, i don't get any sound. It is important to note that the other player is definitely a gnome application. I tried playing a song in Rhythmbox after Amarok was started, or play a video in Movie Player: no sound. I get sound from KDE video players, but the video doesn't work there, so that isn't an option. The only explanation i can think of, is that Amarok somehow "occupies" the sound drive, and it remains "occupied" even after the application was closed. Because if i start Movie Player before Amarok, this problem never appears.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Hide The Tool Bar In Smplayer When It Goes Fullscreen?

Oct 4, 2010

SMplayer plays every .mkv i have but i cant seem to hide the top gui bar when it goes full screen. smplayer seem to be the only player that i know plays any .mkv. while others i get a 264h errors and vlc can play most .mkv files but not all the ones i have.(tried Banshee,wine, totem) So i'm just looking for a quick fix Are there any other players that can play .mkv files (fullscreen with no annoying bars)or how do i hide the tool bar in smplayer when it goes fullscreen?

I don't really want to fix the 264h.errors it just.. bleh i've been surfing the web for a few hours trying to find a fix and it's been very time consuming.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound System Fine But Cannot Listen To Radio Livestream

Aug 18, 2010

I did a clean install of ubuntu 10.4 on 2 pc's and got the problem underneath on both of them. I can play all kinds of cd's, dvd's. The soundsystem is working fine. If I want to listen to a radio-station in a browser (be it firefox, be it chromium) I don't hear anything at all. No error-messages are generated. I installed/removed various soundmodules, but all to no avail. If I paste the url of the strean in VLC or Rythmbox, then I can hear the music! At booting-up, I get the following messages in the user.log-file :

Aug 18 20:36:27 Ubuntu-Bernard pulseaudio[1093]: module.c: Failed to load module "module-rtp-recv" (argument: ""): initialization failed.
Aug 18 20:36:27 Ubuntu-Bernard pulseaudio[1093]: module-gconf.c: pa_module_load() failed
Aug 18 20:36:27 Ubuntu-Bernard pulseaudio[1182]: pid.c: Daemon already running.

I must say that initially I only got the message "pulseaudio[1135]: pid.c: Daemon already running." By the way. I can listen to some stations, eg. [URL]. In the latter case, an iplayer-console is being opened.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Unable To Play Files On NAS Drive From Within Smplayer Over Samba Shares Or Ftp?

May 21, 2011

I have mentioned this in another thread elsewhere but perhaps this is a better location. In Opensuse 11.3 I was able to play files on my NAS drive from within smplayer over samba shares or ftp. I would simply use dolphin to browse to the file on the nas drive (either through samba or ftp protocol), double click the .avi file and it would load smplayer and begin playing immediately.

In 11.4 I have samba set up using the same smb.conf file However, if I double click the .avi file it copies the entire contents to the local computer before launching smplayer. If I use smplayer's file selector and navigate to the file on the samba share I get the message "you can only select local files" This is a different behaviour to that from 11.3 However, using the ftp protocol from within dolphin smplayer launches immediately and begins playing. smplayer is launched using the shortcut command

smplayer %U
Does anybody have any suggestions on a workaround or how to correct? Using kaffeine I have no problems. Double click the file on the nas drive and kaffeine launches immediately and begins playing.
