OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine And KsCD Won't Play CDs Or DVDs

Nov 26, 2009

I have recently installed 11.2. I am having some sound woes. Vlc plays CDs and DVDs but Kaffeine won't. KsCD won't play CDs. When I try to use Kaffeine to play a CD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]
Opening kaffeine in the terminal gives:
user@linux-kxg1:~> kaffeine
user@linux-kxg1:~> CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found
CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found

When I try to use Kaffeine to play a DVD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

Do I have to add anything to /etc/fstab? /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are pointing to /dev/sr0, but these apps are not seeing the device.

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:

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

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: No Sound In Kaffeine?

Mar 13, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Movies And Browser

Sep 22, 2010

Can anybody give me a clue why there is no sound when I watch videos via any player or browser?, I've installed "restricted formats codecs", (well I did it many times for GNOME desktop of 11.3 SUSE and it was ok), now when I've installed KDE and downloaded these codecs, there is no sound in any video media I play. Audio card seems to be working and configured just fine, then it should be codecs, but what else can I install instead?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xine/kaffeine Mp4a No Sound

Mar 19, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Get Sound In Mythtv But Get In Kaffeine And Vlc

Aug 31, 2010

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.

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 :: 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 :: .rmvb Files Not Playing Well On Kaffeine?

Sep 25, 2010

but after a forum search I only found one similar thread, but seemingly the issue was not totally solved. I just would like to suggest a solution (well, most likely a workaround) for .rmvb Real Player movies which don't work well on Kaffeine, without need to install other players or applications.I first saw many people had similar problems as me: Real Player movies just played sound but not video, or viceversa. I first tried installing w32 codecs, but this seems to be the good solution for 32 bit users, I use 11.3 x64 and didn't work for me. After some Google search I came to this page:Index of /pool/non-free/w/w64codecs/

Seems to be a Medibuntu repository, and I looked for a .tar file, since I was looking for a "w64" version of the codecs. I downloaded the latest .tar.gz file found on the page, the 20071007 one and uncompressed it. It has some codec files and a Readme which tells where to put the files. After that done, without rebooting Suse, I tried again to play the movie, and Kaffeine finally played it well, although now it pops a message saying Kaffeine closed unproperly whenever I close it after having played a .rmvb movie. I think that can be solved by updating Kaffeine, but haven't tried that yet
