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,
jdk
