amarok no sound?


just realised that when i click on a mp2 and it opens it using amarok sometimes it looks like its playing but i gte no sound, all other players work real player, the only way i get amarok to play it is to go to control center and restart the sound settings....why is this happening?

I am having the same problem!!
I have XMMS as well and i think both amaroK and XMMS use aRts. I intalled Xine engine and gstreamer. when i which the engine to xine i can hear the sound, however, i get nothing with aRts.

try installing xine engine from Yast and switch from aRts to xine.

anybody knows what engine juk uses ? coz i like it but i can't hear anything? and why aRts isn't working ?

amarok doesn't compare to XMMS, so, what did I done?

simple : apt-get remove amarok

now, XMMS rules and works with alsa very well (by the way, it doesn't work with aRts, I have to configure it but due of no time for that uninstall & use what works by default! - Linux people must understand that an OS must be esay to use in the first place if they want to win)
