Thread: Opensuse 12.3 - no sound for mp3s

  1. #1

    Default Opensuse 12.3 - no sound for mp3s

    Several updates ago (not sure which one broke it) the sound for mp3s stopped working. My userid is in the audio group, I own the files in /run/user/1013/pulse, flash works fine,
    I can run the sound test from Yast & from the command line and both work. I have gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3 installed.

    Here is the device list,

    aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC269VB Analog [ALC269VB Analog]
    Subdevices: 0/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

    Not sure what is going on, any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You.

    And with what program are you trying to play your mp3s?

    Do you have "vlc-codecs" installed?

    Ok.
    But I see you also have the multimedia:apps repo. Maybe you have some incompatible package mix between this and Packman?
    Try to run this to switch all packages to the Packman versions:
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup --from 1
    Can you play mp3s then?

    Hm, then it should be no codec problem.
    Can you play other files (like ogg or wav)?

    Does it work when you disable PulseAudio?
    YaST->Hardware->Sound->Other->PulseAudio Configuration (logout/login or reboot after changing that setting).

    I will give that a try on Monday (it's my desktop at work), unfortunately I need to leave now for a memorial service.
    Thank You for the help, I will post on Monday if that works.

    I went into sound settings and turned off pulseaudio (so I thought) and rebooted. Still no sound from VLC, so I did it again.
    Rebooted and checked and pulseaudio still had a check in the box. Tried turning it off again, making sure that I hit the OK
    button each time. Rebooted and now VLC is working. So turning off pulseaudio worked, is it a config issue?
