OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok 2.1.1 And Kaffeine Fail To Play?
Feb 21, 2010
this is my 1st time using linux(opensuse)..i use laptop acer aspire 4710 i already install this os..then i got prob with amarok 2.1.1 and kaffeine..this app can't play..and kaffeine always appear ( error )
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.
I'm using openSUSE 11.3 for my laptop and Kaffeine built in as my player. But when I tried to play any files with external subtitles, there is nothing happened. The drop-down list of subtitles is just gray and cannot be used.
So I have two questions: (1) Can Kaffeine built in openSUSE 11.3 load subtitles automatically? (2) If it cannot, how to load subtitles manually?
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?
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,
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.
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've tried to search through this forum a couple of times to understand this problem, but no posts to date (that I've found) quite address it. Simply put, I am unable to get amarok to play mp3 files, which represent a large portion of my music collection.Every time I start the program, a window pops up advising me that amarok cannot play mp3 files, and it asks if I wish to install that support. Every time I click yes, it announces that the system has successfully done so, except that I might have to restart the program for the change to take effectEvery time I restart the program the same sequence happens. At no time does it ever play mp3 files.
I've tried to install every mp3 codec library I can find, none of this makes any difference.There was a time when amarok handled all this with absolutely no problem and behaved like a really good music manager, but that capability evidently was blown away by some software update that I probably wouldn't have run if I'd known what would happen.Does anyone know how to solve this? (Yes, I've tried using mmcheck. Does no good. This is openSUSE 11.3 for x86_64. Amarok Version 2.3.0 Using KDE 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 2"
I've installed Opensuse 11.4 and even have the multiboot working (at last) and firefox running at more than a snails pace, but this latest problem is really stumping me. I suspect it might be a little more fundamental than just amarok and mp3's but that's where I see it.
So, when I run amarok it asks if I would like to install MP3 support So I click on affermative and, since I added the neccessary repositories, it starts merrily into updating. Then after a few files it his this one:
98MB. It downloads all the way to 99% and then the transfer rate drops from the 120KB/s I expect to 8B/s for a minute or so nad then it just restarts from 0%. It will do this a few times before offering the opportunity to skip. I did skip and it did a few more files successfully then hung up in the same way. It seems like any file larger than 1MB will not download.
I'm a new openSUSE 11.2 user and lately I've been getting repeated notifications from KDE saying that "the audio playback device HDA Intel(AD198x Analog) does not work" I get audio if I stream videos off the Internet but Amarok can't seem to play audio.
I'm running Kaffeine on openSUSE 11.2. (The version of Kaffeine is whatever was included in that distribution.)
I noticed Kaffeine does not play wmv files. An "error" message appears with no details when I try to play one.
So I followed the instructions in the Kaffeine FAQ on how to add support for wmv: It's supposed to be a simple matter of downloading the win32 codecs and extracting to /usr/lib/win32 (see FAQ | Kaffeine - KDE Media Player).
Still doesn't work. I tried extracting the codecs to usr/local/lib/win32 (this folder is mentioned in codecs README as another possible location).

okay, here are the details: can't play any audio with amarok when desktop effects are enabled because the minute a window is moved, it will distort the audio. even when disabling desktop effects, some applications still cause this. can't play videos videos even with desktop effects disabled because of the same reason.
i just switched from ubuntu and when i ran version 11.04, i had to disable kms to do anything. i tried on opensuse 11.4 and the audio was flawless but the gfx went all to hell.
I have installed Amarok on clean Ubuntu 9.10 and when I tried to play some mp3 files it just skip them all and finish the play list. I don't know how to fix this, maybe I need something to be installed. On other programs the files works fine. I have some Intel efault sound card.
I've been a Ubuntu user for the last 7 days and just switched from Vista.I've been loving it so far except for this tiny problem. Amarok does not play media files at all.The pre-installed Rhythmbox with 10.04 works great.In Amarok,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 and then it tries to play all the songs in the playlist unsuccessfully. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and Amarok 2.3.0(KDE 4.4.2) in a 32 bit system.
im brand new to kubuntu and ived never used amarok before and its kinda confusing me. i have all my songs imported and they all show up, but they wont play. double clicking them doesnt do anything, though at the bottom right of the amarok window it says "now playing [song title]". ive gotten a few songs to play but not most of them.
I'm having trouble trying to get Amarok to play CDs or play tracks from any Media Device.
When I insert a CD into my CD drive the Device Notifier widget gives me 2 options "Play Audio CD with Kaffeine" and "Play Audio CD with Amarok". Kaffeine can play the CD but Amarok doesn't see the device.
Also when I attach my iPod to my computer I can view the files in Dolphin but the device isn't shown in the Content Browser of Amarok.
In Amaroks configuration menu I have the plugins for both AudioCd Collection and iPod Collection
Amarok Version 2.4.1

My cd with cda files on it plays in kaffeine but it wont play in amarok Igo to playlist at top then add media scroll to cd-rom on the lfet and pick a cda file but it wont play, what am i missing, i just went through mmcheck and added what i needed. is it suppose to play in amorok as well?
I have recently installed Amarok, however despite appearing to have transferred all my music files and folders into itself, they won't play. Only the default track, Art of Nations, keeps playing every time I try to play a track!
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, Amarok version 2.3.0, Using KDE 4.4.2 Whenever I start Amarok and try to play any song, amarok crashes, smetimes a few seconds of the music can be heard even if the Amarok window is no longer there. This is my yakuake code from starting Amarok to the crash, I don't really know where to start looking for an answer.
