Postby bms on Wed Jun 25, 2008 8:30 pm

i get sound when i play a cd but if i view web video there is no sound and i don't have sound on other apps but some games have sound
i am fairly new to linux and very new to mint just a few days but i love it i also had the same problem with ubuntu 8.04 but i only ran it for a few days and then i found mint and decided to spend my time learning it

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Do you have sound to other applications when you are not listening to music? The new pulseaudio sound server has problems with playing sound when two or more apps are trying to use the sound server at the same time.

I do not have sound on other apps with music playing or without music playingi don't think it is a dual app problem
