xine only plays the soundtrack, no speech or sound effects


Hey everyone!

I've tried the audio compression trick that's recommended on xine but it didn't work. I've got xine version 0.9.23. I've installed the dvd decoders and such. The video plays and the soundtrack plays but I do not get speech. It's like I'm watching the audio commentary for the music.

Does anyone know to fix this? any and all help appreciated.

thanks!

Once again, Frank's post comes to the rescue...

Programs not included in Fedora
DVD software
MP3 support
Good CD burner (it comes with XCD Roast but I prefer K3b)

To download and install these programs or any other programs you may want, I recommend using a program called apt-get
go to freshrpms.net and download the 2 files you need to run apt-get. They must be installed together for it to work. This must be done from the command line to work properly.

Here are the two files

http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshr...0.1.fr.i386.rpm

http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshr...0.1.fr.i386.rpm

download both of these, put them in a directory like /home/yourname

afterwards go in to console and type

su (root password) * no ( ) just type your root password

cd /home/yourname

rpm -Uvh apt* *this will install both packages at the same time.

apt-get update *this sets up apt-get with the proper list of available software

now you can get a player for DVDs. Mplayer and xine are good for this so just use apt-get to go get it for you and install it. To do that type:

apt-get install mplayer*
apt-get install xmms-mp3
apt-get install xine*

aptget will go get the file, install it and make it ready for use.

If you go to the Fedora menu Mplayer should now be listed under Sound & Video as "movie Player" It will play divx, dvd, etc... you may need to change the dvd drive in it to the correct one on your system though in preferences.

Xine will be listed as xine in the menue

xmms will be listed as "audio player" just like it was when you installed Fedora but will now play MP3's as well. To play standard CD's you may need to change the preference in xmms. To do that open xmms
right click on it and choose options preferences
left click on cdaudio player and hit configure. change the play mode to digital instead of analog.

I've installed ogle and I get the full sound on ogle. So I assume at this point it has something to do with xine.

Has anyone had this problem?
