    Default Audio cds will not play fluently on my 11.3 KDE 64 bit.

    I have a problem about playing cds in my newly installed Opensuse 11.3 KDE 64 bit.

    If I put an audio cd and play it with Kscd or any other device it can play, but after few seconds it hangs, plays again, hangs etc.

    I have installed the files explained in the multimedia guide, ( - maybe with one exception; - I misread the guide and did not delete the VLC repository right away.

    I have since tried to address this by using YasT Software Management to switch all packages, - I was advised to do this.)

    I wonder if anyone could help me???

    Try amarok
    or even better - rip the cd and play from your HD

    k3b will rip cd's if you have k3b-codecs installed, or install jripper from packman

    Hello caf4926

    Mm, - there is a thing I forgot to mention, - mostly because Amarok couldn't play cds on my previous 11.1 and 11.2, so I didn't think much of it, but it wont load them, - I checked again. (Admitted could be I use it wrongly, - if i put in the ced there comes a pop up dialog box, there i can chose to play it with Amarok, if I do that nothing happens. If i open Amarok, open folder and find it, if I mark the files nothing happens.)

    You are right, ripping them is a good idea, - and its a project I should get to. And I will look into k3b and ripping and the formats it can do it to.

    But still I would like to be able to just play them, I have loads of cds and they are nice enough. ;-)

    In my pc neither Kaffeine, KsCD, or sm-player will play fluently. I do not have vlc. I thought it might be related to codecs? During the packman install not everything was installed smoothly, some files came with warnings etc. Could it be that?

    It looks OK at a quick glance

    So audio playing from the HD sounds fine?

    Mm yes, no problems there ( I have a few issues about the screen resolution, but I do not think that relates to that ). And the hardware also works, - i have an old xp i can boot into for games and such, and it will play audiocds.

    I can also rip, ( - started the ripping project you animated me to, ;-), - its a long one, 10 down 300 to go!! )

    I'm thinking if it is related to the fact that I didnt right away delete the vlc repository as I wrote "I have installed the files explained in the multimedia guide, ( - maybe with one exception; - I misread the guide and did not delete the VLC repository right away.

    This is how vlc and packman looked in yast before i switched it.

    Actually i did more than switched it, I first removed vlc from yasts repositories, then i switched it.

    It should be OK and your earlier images showing the packman packages looked good.
    All there may be are some red packages left over from the VLC repo. If you view by repository it opens at 'system' - Scan down and see. An example of one you will certainly have is libdvdcss. It's from VLC and not in Packman, there may be others like it, I don't know. When you look you will see no provider listed when you go to the 'versions' tab. Try it with libdvdcss and you will see what I mean. These are basically orphaned packages, but I don't really think they will be the issue though.

    What version of Amarok do you have that plays audio cd, without ripping to HD? The one that comes with 11.3 distribution i.e. 2.3.0 doesn't seem to have that function.

    I have 2.3.1
    I have kde4.5.1

    But I am certain 99.99% that cd playing was in earlier versions. I may even have a screen of it. Now it's just finding it.
