No sound in KDE with iec958 in 13.37


Sorry - sound is fine in KDE, but not in Firefox.

Alsamixer shows no capture controls for the device and I get no sound through the browser. I have set the device as default. However, I get sound fine when testing in KDE's System Settings (Phonon). Sound works just fine through Amarok and Dragon Player.

How do I get Firefox to play sound through this device?

Show us the output of 'aplay -l'.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

The other device works through the browser, but not the HDMI device.

Code:
root@slackware:/usr/sbin# aplay -l

To make the HDMI device the default, try creating an ~/.asoundrc file with this:

Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
    device 3
}

I know it's an old thread, but this helped me sort out HDMI out on my Slackware64-current system.

Thanks to you!
