OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok Is Truncating Output?
Sep 29, 2010
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
how to get Amarok 1.X installed on 11.2? I updated to 11.2; and as far as I can tell it's only got A2. I am REALLY DISPLEASED with A2 and want to go back to 1.4. I couldn't 1.4 any where for downloads; as far as repos go.
I am not having any luck with the 'out-of-the-box' version of Amarok on 11.2. It is missing a lot of features (syncing with my fuze most notably). So I figured that I would go to the latest version, but the one-click install from backports (2.2.2-4.1) reported that it could not install amarok-xine and amarok-libvisual. It installed anyway, but was not stable at all. I thought that that install process was supposed to do the updates for me. I went back to the 2.1.1 version, but it still crashes pretty frequently.
Trying banshee right now. Anyway, the big question is... do I go up, down, or off for Amarok? I have a Sansa Fuze and would love to sync music with it, but Amarok is not getting the job done right now. I have read of people going back to 1.4, but after my attempt to install 2.2.2, I'm not so sure that I'm doing it right. Should what I did have worked? I'd like to find one that will get album art and transfer it to my fuze as well (folder.jpg is what seems to make it the happiest).
I'm using Amarok 1.4 and when I select the playlist=>burn to CD, k3b doesn't apear. I get the prompt that asks if I want to make an audio or data disk. Only the Audio CD works; the data disk option doesn't work.
I'm running OS 11.2x86_32, KDE 4.4.3 with the latest updates and a problem has cropped up with Amarok (version 2.3.0). When starting the app it keeps saying there is no mp3 support and do I want to install it. Tell it yes, and restart the program and it says the same thing at each start. What's strange is that mp3's play just fine. I've run the 10 steps for troubleshooting and all the codecs are fine, this appears to be an Amarok only problem. SMplayer works fine, Kaffeine and VLC too.
I have a vast amount of MP3's but I can't seem to get Amarok to play them, Amarok opens up and I can see all my music in the music folder with no problem but when I select an MP3 and select Play I get nothing. I can convert my CD collection to OGG.VORBIS but I don't want to go through that process all over again. Currently I'm using 11.2 64bit,
suddenly I just could not get it to run. The coloured startup came up but nothing else. So I ran it as su from a terminal and this was the result:<unknown program name>(6552)/:KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server: "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." <unknown program name>(6551)/: KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly
I'm having trouble playing some mp3's through Amarok, all other media players are fine with the mp3's in question. Tested on VLC and Audacious. Most other mp3's play through Amarok though. Why this problem. I'm using the gstreamer backend. I tried changing it to xine but then nothing would play. I really like Amarok and want to use it as my main player, so this issue is a little irritating.
I run Amarok 2.4.3 from KDR 4.7. I noticed that Last.fm is not listed among the services.Nor is the usual "Like" icon displayed in the middle pane. And Amarok doesn't scrobble. I have liblastfm0 installed and I installed liblastfm (no "0") from KDR yesterday, but that didn't help. So these should all be from the same repo (can't check right now as package kit is doing updates). Any clue what I have to do to get the service back? I use openSUSE 11.4 and KDE 4.7 from the Release repo.
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?
Isn't the scrobbler (or whatever it is called) built into the newer Amarok as it used to? I recently upgraded to 2.3.1 and I can not find any possibility to connect with Last.fm. Do one have to install it separately instead?I am on OS 11.2 and upgraded through KDE application update repo.
Suse 11.3 KDE 4.4 Amarok - Standard version that comes with 11.3 I start Amarok, which still worked fine yesterday and this morning. I get the Amarok splash screen and then it disappears and the Crash Handler with the following message appears.
I've had problems with Amarok crashing so I reinstalled. I think its the Nvidia Driver, so I read on another thread. I tried the uninstall and init 3 thing and needed gcc and a few more files that were not installed. In the end I had enough and reinstalled. Now Amarok runs. If I install the nvidia driver I have an idea that it will crash like Ayrton Senna, or maybe quicker. so is there a simple work around.
I'm having an issue with playback in Amarok 2.3 on openSUSE 11.3. When using xine, Amarok will playback songs very quickly, probably something like 3X-4X faster than it should be. There is also no audio output when it does this. Using gstreamer it plays back at normal speed, but also without audio output. I've done some searching for this problem, but haven't found anything helpful. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Below I'm listing all the multimedia/codec packages that I have installed.
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.
Title says it all. I have an OpenSuse 11.2 KDE 4 64 bit system. I'd like to run Clementine as an audio player but can't find an RPM that will install on my system. Please don't suggest I update to 11.4 since KDEPIM is still unusable in that version. (11.2 is the latest version with a fully functional KDEPIM including distribution lists) I'd gladly install Amarok 1.4 but then I'd need to add KDE3 to this system.
Playing around with 11.2 RC2 since a few hours. This is my first encounter with Amarok 2. Still trying to find everything I used in Amarok 1. But one thing annoyes me.
Right in the middle of the window is a panel for which I see no use. I found I could remove the things that are in there, but now there is a text that orders me to push the + and to add things (never in my ...). I managed to move the borders at the left/right of it to make it smaller, but still a piece of annoying, space taking, part of the panel is there.
Did anyone succeed in removing it completely and does she/he want to share the howto with me?
It isn't that I don't get sound. It just won't play. If I click a file, then click play it quickly goes through an amount of songs. Too quick to give a good number. For example, if I have 100 songs on my library, I want to play one. Obviously I click play and such to make it play but instead of playing it acts as if it can not read the file (even though all my songs are in the library). Got any help/tips/whatevers?
I'm struggling to find a way to sync my media player (Sony W995 - it just appears as a disk when plugged in, so it should be OK I think). I can kind of get something working by adding the mount point as a 'Local Music' folder. The problem is, there doesn't seem to be a way of 'syncing' to Local folders. Further more, my music collection is in FLAC format on my PC - but I need to transcode it to mp3 when syncing with my media player. Is this possible? I don't expect to be syncing the other way at all.
Otherwise, I'm stuck with manually transcoding/copying files with Dolphin
I am running openSUSE 11.2 KDE desktop. (Also use LXDE as an alternative desktop because I am running on a P3 with 512 of RAM.) I originally had followed the guidance at Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums and had Amarok and Xine both working satisfactorily for several weeks. Now, for some reason, both apps begin to load and then crash.
