I listen to some voice mail messages over the web. Firefox downloads the message as a ".wav" file, and then invokes amarok to play it.What I have been noticing, is that amarok seems to cut the message short.As an additional test, today after playing a message on amarok, I tried playing the same message with kaffeine. There was significantly more to the message when played on kaffeine. The particular message ended with the phone number I should call back (if I wanted to). None of that ending sentence showed in the amarok playback
After upgrading my Lenovo T61 to openSUSE 11.2 (64 bit)/KDE 4.3.1.playing mp3/Internet radio (Last.fm) or DVDs using VLC works fine.When trying to play mp3s/Last.fm 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?
Sound is working fine-- I can test my sound card in YAST and get sound when I play audio or video files using kaffine. But when I try to use amarok or banshee I get only silence, even when I just try to play system sounds.
the flac decoder in 11.1 Amarok Playing my CD rips (flac) in Amarok has issues with something like skips. little short dropouts in the sound. Using Suse 10.3 (still on the box) does not have this issue. System: Suse 11.1, KDE 3.5 recent install and update. 32 bit on 32 bit platform, old Athlon 2500+ Asus MB, 1 GB ram, two 120 GB internal, Audigy SC.
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 alsa-info.sh: [URL] My Smolts system profile: Show Box my /var/log/messages keeps recording this:
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 libdirectfb-1.1.so.0
I tried the following: Code: ldd /usr/bin/mplayer | grep libdirect libdirectfb-1.1.so.0 => 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 libdirectfb-1.2.so.0. Is this a newer rev or a different library because of my platform?
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.
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.
I just finished installing 11.4 64bit. Kaffeine and Amarok both produce sound, but VLC does not. When I invoke vlc [URL]. I can see the name of the album playing but there is silence. I ran the mmcheck script.

We recently purchased a Bose Music System/Soundlink. It has a wireless unit that plugs into the music system, and a USB "key" that attaches to the computer. The music system connects to the USB key as it is supposed to do.
Linux sees the USB key as an audio unit. In fact, it offers Bose Link (audio), Bose (Front) and a Bose (digital audio) options. In KDE :: Configure Desktop :: Sound it lists the 3 Bose USB audio options.
So far, no sound has been emitted through the Bose USB audio even though it has been given preference to everything sound. It has not mattered which of the Bose options is given the highest preference. Linux still steadfastly outputs to the builtin hardware (Realtek audio) foregoing all other options.
How do I convince Linux to output to the Bose USB audio?
I am running openSUSE 11.2 with an hda-intel sound card (dell latitude d830) in x64. Pulseaudio is only giving me a "dummy" sound card, even though volume in the yast sound configuration works. Volume is definitely not muted.Here is the requested info:alsa-info.sh:[URL]
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
For the last few releases, I've remained with Amarok 1.4, but now that I've deemed Amarok 2 stable enough, I've upgrade, however, the lyrics to my songs (which I put in a lot of effort in downloading), are not reflecting. Is there anyway to export lyrics from Amarok 1.4 and import them in Amarok 2?
A few days ago I setup a pc. It contains an "Intel ICH5" sound card. Before I begin posting all the configuration stuff I've tried so far what the standard procedures are to set it all up for recording the sound card output (with Audacity)?
On my older computer it all worked fine but now I only get silent recordings. However sometimes (when I played on the controls the right way...) I get recordings where you can (amoung some noise) recognize the stuff I actually wanted to record very low... Apart from Audacity I've also tried
Code: arecord -vv -fdat audio.wav which didn't work either. That's why I think the problem is not related to Audacity but to the system.
Is the combination of OpenSuse 11.2 + ALSA + Intel ICH5 commonly known to cause such trouble?
I'm using pulse audio sound server in opnsuse 11.3 and latest version of flash player, The problem is playing video or sound with flash player in firefox, Once I play something in firefox sound output it seem like closed to other applications like amarok.
A fresh install of 11.3 64 KDE 4.4 some packman stuff installed. Some broken as no current 64 bit libs or funky packman situation currently. CD audio is choppy. No mp3 playback though support is installed. [URL]....
my sound works when i boot up but as soon as i play a couple of files with VLC video or audio it doesn't matter the sound stops and comes up with an error saying: ALSA version problem:VLC failed to re-initialize your sound output device. Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.22 or higher to fix this issue.Potential ALSA version problem:VLC failed to initialize your sound output device (if any).Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or higher to try to fix this issue. I found latest version on net and installed and yast said install fail version already installed my sound device is HDA Intel (ALC C880 Analog)
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?
The technical details: Suse 11.4 EVGA GeForce 8400GS Video card (HDMI)
All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).
Running 10.10 and win 7 on my HP dv6-2150us laptop and I'm having a few issues.
First how do I get HDMI audio output to my TV? I think I have just a integrated Intel graphics card. It works fine in windows but I can't seem to get it to work in Ubuntu. I tried searching but couldn't find anything pertaining to this issue.
I don't know anything about ubuntu. Could you guys help me out. I'm pretty knowledgeable with windows if you guys need a printout of something let me know. My friends getting really frustrated about this. Help!!i
So here's the situation. He plugs his audio jack into his computer and then into the speakers but it still plays from the computer speakers.
I can hear system sounds and the test sound. But I cant hear any sound from either kscd or amarock. Both show themselves "playing" but there is no sound from the speakers. I know my hardware is ok cos it all works under Windows XP. I have opened kmix and unmuted every thing and put the sliders to max ...but nothing. Im using suse 11.1 64bit
One thing ...I cant set "Direct Digital Playback" in kscd. If I do the the CD vanishes from the CD player. Ejecting and reloading the CD doesnt make it visible again.
I can post the file containing the hardware information from yast ..but its 700kb
I found that I need to do sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg.But when I do that It finishes with an EULA that I cannot say ok to, the only thing I can do is exit the terminal and I believe that is preventing the libxine1 package from finishing the install.I cannot play audio in any of the programs that come with ubuntu either.
I have a fresh install of Natty and i'm having some issues getting sound to work. My laptop has a built in sound card which works just fine. However, i also have a usb 5.1 sound card which isn't working at all. Both devices show up in 'Sound Preferences' but when i select the 5.1 device as the output device sound doesnt work. I ran the alsa-info.sh script and the output can be found here.
I have installed Fedora 10-x86_64. I was happy and content with the distribution. Earlier, I found that there is no sound on my headphone's jack where as the normal sound output from my laptops's speakers is OK. I fiddled with the available mixers but couldnt get anything. There seem to be 5 different mixers (HDA, ALSA, OSS), 3 for the playback and 2 for the capture.
I am using an acer 4530 laptop. It has a nvidia Nforce MCP77 chipset. and the o/p lsmod| grep snd :
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.
