Amarok 2 no sound on Gloria

Postby crainey69 on Sun Jun 14, 2009 9:57 am

I've searched around through the forums about this and found some similar posts but no solutions and not sure my problem are related.

All other sounds work and all other media players work but, when I start Amarok, it says something about Phonon Audio Device sil... doesn't work(something flashes too fast to see and remember) falling back to default. I've tried running it from CLI and it gets all kinds of errors and I'm not sure which, if any are relevant as most of them say something about not liking the IDV3 music tags.

I wouldn't mind using another player but, Amarok is the only one that syncs well with mine and kids .mp3 players. It will still work fine for that task even though I can't get it to play. I know it has something to do with sound driver settings and probably how KDE (I use Gnome) is interpreting them but I'm not sure how to proceed. I've tried removing pulseaudio as someone suggested and that didn't help.

I appreciate anyones help on this!

Finally think I fixed it. Not sure it was the right or only solution. The Gstreamer plugin for Phonon was installed but not the xine plugin. I installed the Xine plugin and it works now.

Hope this helps someone else or anyone has any suggestions for me that would be appreciated too.

Thank you very much! I had the same problem. Xine can solve everything. Thanks a lot!
