Helllo , I’m running Suse 11.1 and I have this problem:
while running movie with mplayer from the terminal the sound is fine. But when I try to play something else there is no sound. Even in youtube there is no sound. The sound manager in Yast gets my sound card, but when try to make a tets sound - Nothing?Any suggestions please ??
First, I note you state you can play a movie with mplayer from the terminal. Great ! So basic sound works. … As an aside - install smplayer from packman. Its a front end GUI to mplayer and it is great! Incredible even.
Reference youtube. That could be your browsers ability to play flash. Some 32-bit and 64-bit users have discovered if they keep flash-player but remove libflashsupport, their audio will work. Try that. Maybe also let us know if your PC is a 32-bit or 64-bit ?
As for YaST test sound not working - there is a known bug in YaST sound module where for some sound cards the test sound does not work.
No sound where? With flash and firefox? You may have a 64-bit PC flash problem - in which case, I probably don’t know enough to help you there with wasting a lot of time hunting back and forth with various ideas. Someone else who can “cut to the chase” quicker with setting up flash on a 64-bit system should step in here.
