Just a question, because I can see it nowhere mentioned in this thread: Do you have connected your video-card with the S/PDIF-connector from your motherboard?

Got it working. Unmuted SPDIF in alsamixer and then it was just some settings in VLC. In preferences, turn on advanced settings, set the output device from Default to ALSA, refresh the list of ALSA devices and select nVidia device 0,7. There were a few nVidia devices, and 7 is the one that seemed to work for me.

Anyway, problem solved! Thanks for all the help!

Nope, no need for it.

Just to clarify, the SPDIF connection may be needed on other cards, however my video card doesn't even have a connector for it. It worked without it.

I really wonder about that, just because the 8400GS has no dedicated sound device.
