OpenSUSE Multimedia :: One One Sound Can Play At A Time?

Dec 1, 2009

Recently installed 11.2x64 with KDE4.

Everything is working great (excellent release!) with the exception of sound.

The sound works well when only one app needs it, but sound only works for one app. If another program is open, it has no sound.

Some examples: - If I am listening to an .mp3 with VLC, I don't get sound in a movie in SMplayer.

- If I have a tab open in firefox with a flash movie (like .....), any other firefox tab will have no sound.

The worst part is that if I have virtualbox open, no other applications have any sound as long as it is open.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Play Mp3 Files - No Sound

Jun 15, 2010

I just installed openSUSE 11.2. When I had installed it, I could play music from ..... and others, but no mp3-files. Because of that I followed the steps described in this thread: Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums When I finished that, I still couldn't play my mp3-files and couldn't even play music from ..... anymore.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Media Players Do Not Play Sound

Dec 23, 2009

There is no sound when I play a movie. The only mediaplayer that plays the audio is kaffeine. Amarok plays MP3 just fine. All the rest does not. Not vlc, (s)mplayer. An avi,mp3 or mkv file it does not matter. I have installed all restricted codecs but I had to doe it 2 times, the first time I did it the 1click method, but the installation what's interrupted.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Get Sound-test To Play Sounds As Well As Connect To The Sound Device In Vmware And Play Sounds?

Nov 5, 2009

I'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.

I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.

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?

Ubuntu :: Sound On Headphones And Speakers Play At Same Time

Aug 11, 2010

It was so close to a perfect install. The only thing really missing is this issue with the sound. I've searched all over the forums and i found one thing where you get the model and codecs and write them to a file, however, I can't seem to find what my "model" is because none of the postings have anything about Lenovo laptops. Here is the command they all asked for:

cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Codec: Realtek ALC269
Codec: Intel G45 DEVIBX

With that info, how do I get the model and how do I get my speakers to stop playing when headphones are plugged in. Also, I don't have any software installed like pulse audio either, so it's not that.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sound With New Sound Card - Web Browser Is Unable To Play Any Sound

Mar 24, 2010

After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.

I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox And Tuxguitar Can Play At The Same Time ?

Jul 3, 2011

I really like the two programs Tuxguitar, and Rhythmbox. Tux guitar is a tablature editor, and Rhythmbox is an audio management program/audio player.

Sometimes, when reading tabs, I need to find out if something just isn't right, so I check by playing that part in Rhythmbox to see if the tab is correct. I used to be able to do this a few months ago. Then I upgraded to 11.04, and there were lots of changes with packages and stuff.

To be more specific, Whenever Tuxguitar is running, I'll try to play something in Rhythmbox, and the there will be no audio, and the "time progressed through the track" doesn't change.

How to make it so that Rhythmbox and Tuxguitar can play at the same time.

Also, I remember that in the "Tools>Settings>Sound" options, I was using a "Realtime Sequencer" at a port which had "Gervill" in it. I don't have those options available for some reason, and I have no idea how to get it back.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Play MIDI / Play Or Preferably Convert (MP3) Old SNG Files?

Aug 11, 2010

I need to play or preferably convert (i.e. to MP3) old SNG files, which contain voice records. From what I could find, it's basically a MIDI created by synthetiser. I think it was recorded by some ancient VLC player. I failed so far to play it on anything I could download.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Videos Only Play Correctly Some Of The Time?

Aug 31, 2010

Over the past week or two I've been noticing that I've been having more and more problems with playing streaming videos. I haven't been able to find anything consistent about when the videos don't play correctly. Theres been videos where I've just had to wait a day or two to see even though I know from other people that theyre working. Sometimes I get nothing, sometimes its just sound and sometimes its just video. It doesn't seem to depend on the websites either, earlier today I was able to get one video on a webpage to play correctly but the other one on that page would only give me sound for a couple of seconds and then stop like it was buffering even though the status bar showed it had loaded the entire video. I don't think its just a firefox problem either because I was having the same problems at the same websites running opera as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Make Speakers And Headphone Play At Same Time

Jan 31, 2011

I own a netbook (samsung nf210 to be exact) which has Linux Mint 10 installed. What I want to do is to make both, headphones and speakers, play the same output at the same time. I believe it is possible to make it since many people are facing such condition and treat it as a pulseaudio bug (or smth like that) And it would be perfect if it was possible to easily switch between the modified configuration (dual output) and original configuration. I've noticed there are some profiles (analog output, duplex, surround etc.). Is there any way to modify those profiles? If it was, I could modify the Analog Surround Output 4.0 profile and assign rear speakers to headphones and front speakers to internal speakers of my computer.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Speakers Do Not Play Sound

Jul 19, 2010

I'm currently running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on a Pentium 4. I'm currently using the LXDE desktop environment but the problem is the same in GNOME. I have new Altec-Lansing BX1220 speakers. They didn't come with a driver disk and a Google search didn't return any drivers, so they should be plug-and-play. When I plug them in, the light turns on, and with the volume high enough it returns feedback. However, they don't actually play what the computer is playing. I went into alsamixer and made sure all the volumes were turned up; it didn't help. It was plugged into my microphone jack.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 32 Bit App Cannot Play Sound Using Libgstreamer?

Jan 13, 2011

I am attempting to get our 32 bit application, which uses wxWidgets and libgstreamer, to play media on 64 bit Ubuntu (and Kubuntu).

The application itself runs fine, but no media play at all, neither music nor videos.

I have installed "ia32-libs" but no joy.

I have also verified that the machine itself plays sound fine; the same media my application does not play, do play fine using the native 64 bit applications. And before you ask, yes -- the application runs perfectly on 32 bit *buntu

Debian Multimedia :: Game Crashes When I Try To Play With Sound / Fix It?

Jan 22, 2011

I have been trying to play this game and it immediately crashes whenever I try to play sounds. The only other sound in this system I have are the sounds for the bash/dash terminal.

So my questions are:-

a. How do I test if the sound system is working alright.
b. Do I need to increase some kind of priorty/niceness to sound systems to make sure they get the available resources (cpu, memory ) whatever it needs ?

On the same topic, while I was searching on the Net I got this link .

I know this is actually for people who want to make sounds/music but can some of these ideas/instructions be useful for me as well ?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Videos - Only Getting Sound With A31G Motherboard

Aug 6, 2010

I'm testing a rather old motherboard (PC-Chips A31G) with both Ubutu Karmic and Lucid, everything seems to work fine but video playing.

I tried flv, mp4 and mpg with both mplayer and totem, but I can only get sound with no video, well, not a black screen but a deformed image (I don't attach an image because every attempt to capture the screen gets a black or transparent video).

I already installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package witho no luck.

What I don't understand is that, if I switch to another motherboard (using the same HDD), everything works perfect. I guess it's a problem with the motherboard's video chipset, but would like to confirm this and know whether there is a solution.

I attach lspci output for the A31G motherboard.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound From Two Applications At The Same Time?

May 17, 2010

Its unbelivable how crappy Sound in Ubuntu is - i am suffering from this since karmic. Whenever a second appication like Firefox plys a tune my sound in Amarok dies. Even windows 3.1 was able to do this kind of Multitasking and afaik this also was possible WITHOUT this Pulseaudio desaster.

This is my config

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: VT1708S Analog [VT1708S Analog]
Subdevices: 1/2
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 1: VT1708S Digital [VT1708S Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
(1)ch90045@cyclops:$~/cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.21.

This sound desaster makes me really think of buying a windows 7 license.
