intermittent sound in some apps


Hi,

I've installed Mint 13 kde which runs sound files ok in Audacity but sound is intermittent in vlc and absent in Kafine or at YouTube. Any suggestions please

If y'd like me to post any more info, please remind me of the code.

Thanks

As for VLC, you need additional VLC-plugin-pulse to install:

For youtube and web you need flash or similar plugins to be installed:

Hope it helps!

Thanks!

You have two sound devices. Which are you using (and for what)?

The only success I have is with the additional one,CMI8738-MC6, which I hope will serve for everything.

Are you using a stock Ubuntu 10.04? In other words, is PulseAudio running?

I've opened Pulse audio and can see the meter bouncing up and down to a file in vlc, but no sound/

No wait please.
