Thread: Amarok no sound.

    Default Amarok no sound.

    Since rc11.0 of openSUSE11.0 my Amarok player has no sound. Has anyone else
    seen this. I have all the latest updates and I think everything
    installed.When I click the icon it starts the into message but no sound. I
    cannot get to the others screens to select anything.
    All the KDE sounds work and Kaffine plays an Audio disk OK, I have a Nvidia
    SB Live! sound card, and all the sound fonts installed for it. My system is
    a dual boot and 10.3 Amarok works fine.

    10.3 version:
    amarok-xine-1.4.9.1-103.pm.1
    amarok-yauap-1.4.9.1-103.pm.1
    amarok-libvisual-1.4.9.1-103.pm.1
    amarok-1.4.9.1-103.pm.1
    amarok-lang-1.4.9.1-103.pm.1

    11.0 is latest version including yesterday update.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is it only amarok which has no sound or is it a generell issue?

    What files are you trying to play with amarok? ogg? mp3? wav? wma?

    What sound engine have you selected? xine? yauap?

    I have amarok running in 11.0 with no problems (that I am aware of) and I can play mp3 and wav with no problems.

    Can you check and get back to us?

    I had a similar kind of problem. The perpetrator turned out to be xine and only with mp3-files (for what reason I have really no idea) but upgrading from 1.1.12 to 1.1.13 from packman did the trick and now it's working again nicely.

    The Novell/SuSE-GmbH packaged versions of xine will not play mp3. So if one has the xine engine selected, and is trying to play mp3 with that version of xine, it will not work. However the packman packaged version of xine, together with the packman packaged application "mad", if installed, will allow the packman packaged version of amarok to play mp3.

    In this case, we have no information. I lost my crystal ball in the last stock market crash so I can't see what is on the user's PC. I have no idea if the user is trying to play ogg? mp3? wav? wma? I have no idea what sound engine is selected. ... I have no idea which version of xine is in place.

    Its very difficult to give precise guidance without more information.

    Hmm, of course I should have mentioned that I do use the packman xine, which exactly made me wonder why it didn't play mp3... Well, anyways, my problem sort of straightened itself out, but as you said, with the available info there's no knowing does this relate to problem of the original author.

    If you were using the packman packaged amarok, then in addition to needing the packman packaged xine, you also need the packman packaged "mad", to play mp3.

    Sure, I should have written is a less of a hurry. The thing was that I was able to play ms3 fine, then at some point something happened and xine (and thus amarok with xine engine) simply didn't play them anymore. I was busy with other things so I didn't even try to look what was going on and then an update from packman sorted it out...

    I have tried with both engines, same results, no sound. I changed the engine
    in the Amarok settings menu. I also install real player this morning and it
    is working.
