audio output device changes to 'dummy output'
I finally got audio working on my ubuntu 9.10 desktop... now I am having sound issues watching movies from a network share.
The sound device continually randomly changes to "dummy output device" and then there is no sound output. The sound icon dissapears on the toolbar. To get it back and audio to start working I have to $sudo alsa force-reload.
It seems to happen everytime there is a network delay, the movie will stop for a second and then when it plays the sound is gone.
Is pulse locking out the audio or something? Do I need to somehow enable multi apps to use sound?
