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?

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.

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 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 alsa-info.sh: [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 Libdirectfb-1.1.so.0

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 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?

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?

i have the latest libraries of gstreamer from packman installed and i also tried updating the pulseaudio libraries from multimedia repo. but the problem is still the same

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound In Movies - Sound Only In MP3

Oct 22, 2010

I have to recreate a new version of my old thread about my laptop Lenovo Thinkpad EDGE(13) sound trouble. At this point I simply have no clue and tired of trying to fix it. Well after reboot I have no sound in movies, only mp3 has sound, and I can play them via any player. Well to make my video have sound I have to always yast>sound> and manualy setup my Azalia(HDA intel) driver "Fix DMA pointer" to "0" value and my "Use single command to communicate with codecs" to "0" value also, then everything starts to work until next reboot. I don't know why the config is reseted always. I installed new kernel even in hope that my soundcard would work properly, but nothing changed. I reported a bug even, but dunno whether it will be fixed or not, now, if I can write my sound config manually and save it so it is not reseted or anything. Or maybe I can write a script that at autostart will write the desired config for my soundcard, just anything. I'm frustrated at this point, coding as I don't know bash, so I cant do it myself, I need code so I could make a script out of it.

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 :: Smplayer With Vdpau Has Hiccups

Sep 29, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and have it hooked up to my HDTV. My GPU is an 8600 GT and I am using the current nvidia driver. Mother board is GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H, CPU is AMD 4850e, using 2x1G ram 800MHz. Everything I have installed on it comes straight through Synaptic. Smplayer seems to work fine with the VDPAU selected (cpu usage is nice and low during HD playback), but there is a slight problem that really annoys. Every 2-3 seconds the picture seems to have the hiccups, its as though it gets stuck on one frame for a split second and then jumps to the next.

General :: Mplayer No Sound When Playing Some Movies?

Feb 27, 2010

that's a bit of a strange problem, that somehow crept into my system. It used to work fine.Here is the problem as far as I can identify it. When I try to play certain video files with mplayer, there is no sound. As far as I can tell, it is only an issue with ac3 and dts sound tracks (using the ffmpeg decoder).Mplayer says:

Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 6 ch, s16le, 1536.0 kbit/33.33% (ratio: 192000->576000)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Default To Smplayer From Totem?

Dec 6, 2010

the dialog for "open with other application" is broken in that you cannot use 'remember this application for "AVI Video" files'. they always open with Totem. while totem is very capable, it lags at times and sometimes loses the stream if the lag is too long, while smplayer is not as finicky. besides, smplayer has more options that i require.i wish dearly to be able to double click an avi/mkv/etc video file and have it open in smplayer. are there instructions somewhere to do this? i have searched extensively, but there are too many threads that are similar that don't answer my question.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Smplayer Doesn't Play The Same As Mplayer?

Dec 26, 2010

ready some 3gp files so had to install the w32codecs and mplayer version from the medibuntu repository. Now I can play back these files perfectly with mplayer from teh command line but when I open them with smplayer there is no video, just (choppy) sound. Xine also plays them back now although it didn't before. I know the first time I ran smplayer on this installation I had to choose which version of mplayer it was running with but don't know if I can do this again to tell it to use the installed medibuntu mplayer. I'm at a bit of a loss as to why the front-end smplayer would not simply play files with the exact same results as mplayer from the CLI. I haven't rebooted since,

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VDPAU Performance On SMplayer & Compiz?

Apr 29, 2011

Using either MPlayer or mplayer2 under the video player SMplayer, when clicking on any drop-down menus, the video will freeze and then skip. Once the drop-down menu animation has completed, the video playback will play normally. This happens when using VDPAU to play back H.264 MKV files. Audio playback of the video is never interrupted. why VDPAU will not play nice with SMplayer & Compiz?

Does anyone now if SMplayer is able to disable screensaver when playing video? There is an option to have SMplayer to do so within the settings menubut that does nothing, screensaver is still being activated after 5 min. Anyone managed to have the player do this? I am on KDE4 by the way.Kaffeine does disable screensaver but I do not like the KDE4 Kaffeine.
