You need ESD:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install esd


As for setting things up, its all done automatically (at least on my system), so if something isn't working, I'd only suggest that you restart XServer:
ctrl+alt+backspace

For the record, I've tried this with exaile, totem, vlc, and amarok

I FIXED IT :p

sudo gedit /etc/asound.conf
create it or open it and write this inside :

pcm.my_card {
type hw
card 0
# note this is ONLY for my sound card (via 82xx) - most hardware does not need a special sub-device.
# If you do have multiple sub-devices, test them with aplay -D hw0,x testfile.wav where x is one of the sub-devices.
# Other threads have better info on how to find out details like this on your card
device 1
}

# for outputting sound
pcm.dmixed {
type dmix
ipc_key 1024
# let multiple users share
# ipc_key_add_uid false
# IPC permissions for multi user sharing (octal, default 0600)
# ipc_perm 0666
slave {
pcm "my_card"
# rate 48000
# period_size 512
}
}

# for recording sound
pcm.dsnooped {
type dsnoop
ipc_key 2048
slave {
pcm "my_card"
# rate 48000
# period_size 128
}
}

# combines half duplex to full duplex with the asym plugin
pcm.asymed {
type asym
playback.pcm "dmixed"
capture.pcm "dsnooped"
}

# does automatic sample rate conversion
pcm.pasymed {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

# for OSS compatability
pcm.dsp0 {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

# sets the default device as your mixed device
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

# says what the mixer will control
ctl.!default {
type hw
card 0
}
