    Default Amarok: no sound

    Hi!
    When Amarok test sound, everything is fine, but when I try to play any file or URL, nothing is heard although Amarok shows the file is playing on the sreen.
    Are there any idea?
    Thank you in advance.

    I had the same problem and it was the codecs that were not installed. I figured it out because k3b was complaining about mp3 support.

    I can't remember exactly the package name, but I installed the kde4-k3b-blah blah and then everything worked. It's a lower version than the one installed by default.

    I'm not in front of my computer or else I would post more accurate details. I hope it'll give you some clues.

    I also had this problem after updating Amarok. Before the update it worked just fine. I didn't uninstall anything.

    I resolved it by going through the process to install restricted codecs & mp3 support. This worked just fine, and I was surprised because as I said, I hadn't removed anything before upgrading Amarok to 2.2.1.

    Even if you're sure they're all installed, go ahead and install your codecs again. That will probably fix it.
