Music


HI, i want to listen to music from my receiver. My MB has a output digital device. The kde see the digital device and plays the sound when you use the button test from thr system preferences but i dont know how to configure a player to work. I tried xmms and mplayer but both doesnt work. Who knows how to configure a player and watch player i use?
thanks

You will want to try and configure XMMS and/or MPlayer to use the same driver as KDE is using to play sounds. I am a GNOME user, and it uses PulseAudio (on Ubuntu, anyways), but KDE might use PulseAudio as well.

If you are able to hear sounds from the KDE sound configuration "Test" button, then whichever sound engine is generating that already recognizes and has the driver for your sound card loaded.

This is more about configuring KDE to pipe all of its sound output through that particular device.

I usually use mplayer for video and mpd/ncmpc for audio.
