How to tell Xine to use Alsa ?


mplayer works with alsa. So does xmms.

For some reason, I cannot get xine to use alsa too. Obviously I tried "xine -A alsa", but it replies :

main: audio driver <alsa> failed.

Any idea how to tell xine to use alsa ?

The reason I want to try xine is because mplayer doesnt have sound in most asf/wmv/mov files.

Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure (don't remember), but i think it goes like that:

>xine -A alsa

I'm not sure about 'A'. Check xine --help

If that doesn't work try

>xine -A arts

which works on my computer.
