Strange behaviour of Kaffeine Player
 
This is a real head-scratcher. Hopefully I've supplied all the relevant info.
Summary:
Kaffeine - video but no audio

All other video players works correctly: vlc, mplayer, flash ...

Ok, it turns out that the Kaffeine problem is distinct from the Phonon problem. Don't you love it when two unrelated problems appear simultaneously? ;)
The solution to the kaffeine problem is to edit the ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config file You need to need to change this:
Code:

# audio driver
# { auto  pulseaudio  sndio  alsa  oss  jack  none  file }, default: 0
# audio.driver:auto

into this by modifying the last line above.
Code:

# audio driver
# { auto  pulseaudio  sndio  alsa  oss  jack  none  file }, default: 0
audio.driver:alsa

I found the solution here: My German was just good enough. :)
This fixes the Kaffeine problem.
The Dragon Player problem remains. I'll split the two and leave this thread as the Kaffeine problem and mark it as solved. I hope this meets with the approval of the mods.
ciao,
