Thread: Amarok and audio cds

  1. #1

    Default Amarok and audio cds

    Hi!!

    Amarok won't recognize audio cds. Device notification applet shows the option to play cd with amarok when i insert one, amarok pops up but doesnt show the cd.

    Amarok plays perfectly anything that is in my hard drive, flac, wav, mp3, etc, but no audio cd.

    Audatious, vlc and kaffeine do play audio cds fine, though.

    I'm using Amarok 2.4.0 on KDE 4.6.0, opensuse 11.4

    Is there anything that can be done to work that out?

    This sounds familiar! See: CD errors (I think?)

    No solution yet....

    I've got the same problem here on openSUSE 11.4 x64 and Arch Linux, both running KDE 4.6 and Amarok 2.4.1. In my case the tracks from the CD are listed on the left but none of them will play. I posted this in the KDE forums as well, but no love there.

    If you are running Arch, I'm going to assume you already know enough to know you need the multimedia codecs.
    Does the track actually play, is it progressing? and there is just no sound?

    Yes, I have the codecs, gstreamer plugins, etc. It seems to be a problem with KDE 4.6 and/or Amarok 2.4.1. I have also Mandriva 2010 which is using older KDE and Amarok and it works fine. With KDE 4.6/Amarok 2.4.1 the CD shows up on the left but won't play, no sound, no progress.
