i was searching around for a fix for playing .wmv files when i stumbled upon this
after following the directions:
everything was working fine for about 5 minutes, then i noticed that the audio track to the video i was viewing cut out. i thought it was just the file, so i went to a few audio players to see if the rest of the sound was out, turns out, any mp3 i attempted to play came out as silence.
i rebooted my computer, hoping it was a fluke, but no start up jingle, and still no audio playback.
when i adjust the volume very quickly up and down, i can hear the static in the line from it adjusting, so i know it's not my speakers.
if anyone has help or can point me in a better direction, it would be appreciated.
i am using Ubuntu 6.06
