    Default VLC no sound output

    I just finished installing 11.4 64bit. Kaffeine and Amarok both produce sound, but VLC does not. When I invoke vlc http://stream-1.ssatr.ch:80/rsj/mp3 I can see the name of the album playing but there is silence. Any ideas? Oh yes, I ran the mmcheck script.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Did you check the audio settings inside vlc ? Check the output section and select the right one.

    When I select "Audio" from the top panel, "Audio device" is grayed out and not selectable. Volume is full on.

    You ave to go to tools->preferences->audio tab->output section and select the appropriate one. I guess you'll have to select Pulse audio since the 11.4 has the Pulse audio server activated by default.

    Pulse is not an option. But I selected "UNIX OSS audio output" and the sound came back. Many thanks.

    Yes that's what I tried first, because I believe that's the way it was set under 11.3. Didn't work.

    ionmich, my recommendation is you do not follow that suggestion of stamostolias.

    stamostolias, before you make such recommendations, you should really check to see if it is even possible. My understanding is that is NOT possible for vlc and ergo in this case the recommendation is not good. Please correct me if I am wrong wrt vlc.
