Choose audio driver


How can I choose what audio driver my programs use? I want to make my Zapping TV to use alsa as sound driver instead of OSS (which does not work) I know that OSS is /dev/dsp and OSS-mixer is /dev/mixer, but where is the alsa? There is also /dev/audio, but it does not seam to be anything.

I have had the problem that with some applications sounds work and with some it doesn't, and I think the problem is that all aplications which use alsa by default work, and all that use OSS don't, so I have to make all to use alsa.

I don't know fedora that well but if you are using gnone try this;
start gconf-editor
go to system->gstreamer-0.8->default and change the value ossink to alsasink and osssrc to alsasrc. May help

How do you start the gconf-editor? At least command "gconf-editor" won't work.

The Correct command was gstreamer-properties. It turs out, that it is the ALSA that does not always work, but because ALSA was set as default input device, nothing goes trough OSS either... But now it works. Thanks.
