Does your sound even work in general? That's the first thing to look at.

Second thing to look at would be codecs. Do you have the Win32 codecs installed? Do ALL your filetypes have no sound in Kaffeine?

Please report back

It could be a problem with your codecs. I ended up installing the codecs from the mplayer website because the PLF ones had a problem with some MS media types.

He said he HAS AUDIO...but not video. So obviously the sound works. If you don't have any video, could be a plugin issue or a codec problem. I solved my kaffeine problems by using MPlayer so I'm not much help.

Okay, I came across another thread when I googled your problem. Maybe this will help. Your answer probably resides in the very last post. Hope this helps you!

Whoops! This is what happens when you read too fast. audio.. video.. it's all the same thing.

When starting Kaffeine for the first time, it tells you about "libdvdcss" and "codecs" not installed.
If so, go to
http://atrpms.net/dist/common/w32codec/

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...arch/libdvdcss

, download the files and install just clicking on them.

So far, it's worked for me

On Mandriva, you are better of using urpmi instead of installing packages manually. Libdvdcss is in the plf repos.

Does libdvdcss also affect playing .WMV files ? It seems like it's a win32 codec issue? I could be wrong.

You could try the following:
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/dload.html

Look for the essentials codecs. Install and configure your player to point to these libraries for win32 codecs.

You could also get the windows-all codecs, and in the config section of Kaffeine, go to Configure xine, then click on the codec tab and on the bottom tab (win32 codecs), type the location of the windows-all codecs

The packages 'win32codecs' and 'xine-win32' from the PLF repository where all I needed to get .wmv playing working on my system. Goto http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and setup the repositories then get the packages through either the urpmi command or the Mandrake Control Centre GUI.
