Mp3 playback ubuntu


Hello,
I've just installed Ubuntu 8.04 and all necessary codecs for mp3 playback.
At the beginning it worked, but now any player just opens the file and doesn't play, the playback button is pressed but it doesn't play.

Please Help, Thanks

Well, you're not exactly giving us much to work with, are you? What's changed since the last time it worked? Have you installed, uninstalled, or upgraded anything since then? What programs are you using exactly? What outputs do you see when you run these programs from a console? Is it all mp3 files, or only some? Is it only mp3's, or do you also have problems with other types of files?

C'mon guys. Details. Learn how to ask a proper question here.

Hi, David.
Thanks for your reply.
After restart, all the players show the same error message:
"Failed to connect stream: Invalid argument"

Though playback in Youtube works fine.

The problem solved, I went to System->Prefferences->Sound
and changed from "auto-detect" to "ALSA"
