Some apps have sound and some do not … hmm … what can you tell us about these apps ?
My advise is for users to stick with only 4 software package manager repositories: OSS, Non-OSS, Update and Packman and add no others. None. None at all. Guidance for adding packman is here: Repositories/11.2 - openSUSE-Community
What is the output of:
zypper lr -d
do you by chance have more than 4 repositories ?
Have you attempted to replace the crippled Novell/SuSE-GmbH packaged applications with the non-crippled Packman packaged versions ? You can tell packman packaged versions by the “pm” in the version number.
If you go to YaST > Software > Software Management, you can change the “filter” to “search” and find various applications.
Note one can get codecs from packman by installing the Packman packaged versinis of libffmpeg0/ffmpeg (which pick up codecs in their dependencies) , w32codec-all, libquicktime0, libxvidcore4 , … etc …
Note the versions of those apps on videolan repository have the codecs stored in different locations and typically break the audio on packman packaged applications, hence stick with OSS, Non-OSS, Update and Packman and don’t use apps from the videolan repository (with exception of application “libdvdcss” ) .
Ensure you have the Packman packaged libffmpeg0/ffmpeg0 and their packman packaged dependencies. If you have videolan packaged apps it will break your sound for some Packman packaged applications. Install smplayer to get more control over mplayer. Note in both vlc and mplayer you can select the sound output module. Try the different modules. Try MORE than just .mp3. Try also .wav and .wma and other formats.
Please only try ONE multimedia application at a time. So close completely any other multimedia application when testing.
Ensure you check PCM volume levels.
For youtube in firefox, ensure NO other multimedia application is running, ensure you have flash-player installed. You may need to remove libflashsupport application, in which case you need to reboot. Is your openSUSE a 32-bit or 64-bit ? That makes a difference with flash-player.
I had the same problem,
I solved it. After many install, I found something that worked.
Install alsa-plugins-pulse-32bits , alsa-firmware, alsa-tools.
I use a 64bits system too, but i didn’t find another solution.
I’ve got sound with flashplayer and VLC.
Hi there, i will use this title for my own issue. KDE notification sounds, like the login / logout chimes, are not playing for me! I have codecs installed. I also have sound on amarok, and checked the volume levels.
Do you have login sound when you login as root?
I have trouble with no sound in YouTube, but when I start Firefox from terminal I have sound. Maybe it’s permission trouble.
(I know this is not a solution…:))
