My apologies if this is in the wrong section.
Linux Mint12, KDE.
This is part of an ongoing issue I have been having for the past couple of months. Everything was working fine with digital sound interface for a while then the power supply fan started making a noise whcih gradually got worse, I noticed the 3.3v output was below 3.0v and digital sound output failed so I replaced the PSU. The sound came back on everything exept for VLC (I have no idea if this is related). I have tried all the relevant suggestions in other threads, re-installed VLC plus the VLC-pulse plugin. I am using the Phonon sound server and every available option tests out fine and works fine with every other device and application but makes no difference to VLC. Nothing is muted and everything tests OK. Pulse Audio options are greyed out, presumably because I am using Phonon.
It seems to be that VLC is not connecting properly with the sound server and I have no idea what to do to fix it.
I am totally at a loss with this and resorting to using Gnome Player instead but I really want VLC to work. Any Ideas on how to go about getting it working ?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
