If your totem looks like playing the file, then the soundcard might have been configured perfectly. All you have to do is adjusting the volume, you can try aumix, taumix, kmix, alsamixer, or alsamixergui. Just type one of those on the console if you can't find it in the main menu.

Hope this help.

idud, you forgot the GNOME Volume Control panel applet .

Otherwise, I'm with you all the way; the problem is that the sound is muted, not that there's anything wrong with the soundcard configuration. Otherwise the application would crash or produce an error.
