Thread: No sound on Totem

  1. #1

    Unhappy No sound on Totem

    I use Totem 2.24.2. It is not playing sound for .mp4 format anymore. Everything was fine until today , when i decided to install the recommended multimedia packages at Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums.
    The audio of Totem is set to stereo (infact it was always this)
    Xine, Mplayer, Smplayer, Vlc all play great - both audio & video for .mp4.

    Posting the output of my multimedia.

    Please help !

    Code:
    rpm --query --all 'libav*' 'libpostproc*' 'libswscale*' '*xine*' '*gst*' MPlayer '*vlc*' | grep -v avahi | sort

    Default Re: No sound on Totem

    I don't use gnome but I have a feeling it's something to do with the gstreamer packages. Maybe someone else can confirm?
    Most gnome users don't use Totem (I think). SMPlayer is probably the best player for openSUSE.

    The quicktime based sites seem to pickup totem as my default player. Also, i like totem - simple player for all needs.

    Ok . I found this post Opensuse 10.3 Totem No Sound / Mplayer Ok - openSUSE Forums , which points to a totem_config file. I have searched this file all over google and every link points to location "~/.gnome2/totem_config". However, i am not able to locate this within .gnome2.

    I went to yast to check the file list of totem,but the totem_config file wasn't listed there either. Seems totem has got this file in a new location now.

    Any directions?

    Should not be in root, the ~/.gnome2 and ~/.gconf are in your home dir ( the
    ~ means user home )

    Try plaing around with the sound settings in Control Center. I found with my sound chip I have to use the oss decoder. You can play a test sound for each option.
    Once set, right click the speaker launch in the desktop panel and choose preferences. Try using the oss mixer and set the sound level for each.
    If this is still not running, go to yats>hardware>sound and set the sound there.

    Baskitcase: Totem is the default suse gnome player.

    This is what it contains:

    Code:
    blahblah:~ # pwd
    /root
    blahblah:~ # ls
    .adobe         .exrc            .kbd                 .viminfo
    .AntiVir       .gconf           .macromedia          .xauthI95Q5s
    .bash_history  .gconfd          .mozilla             .xauthNHmzpu
    bin            .gnome2          .nautilus            .Xauthority
    .config        .gnome2_private  .recently-used.xbel  .xauthyYCAAF
    .dbus          .gnupg           .Skype
    Desktop        .gstreamer-0.10  .suse_register.log
    None of the above have the file i am looking for!

    @whych: i tried playing test sound - it plays fine. I am having issues with .mp4 only and that too with totem alone. All other media players play it fine. Totem used to play it fine earlier too !
