No sound in mplayer, have w32codec-all installed


Hey all. I am new here.

I am having a problem. I run SuSE 9.3 Eval. and I have installed libdvdcss and w32codec-all, as well as the multimedia option packs, xine-lib1, divx4linux, xvid, and a52dec. Even so, and even after checking all of my volume controls in YaST, I still don't get sound, or, well, if I turn all of my volume up all the way I can hear something, just a little, but I also get feedback.

Furthermore, I get this funny noise too sometimes, it is partly a clicking sound. I have googled on this topic but so far I haven't found anything that seems to pertain to my isse.

My sound card is a Creative Sound Blaster Live! Platinum 4.1 and my speakers are connected using the analogue connections. Sound must be ok because when I use Xine-UI player it works more or less ok, just that voice isn't too good when playing the rental movies off of DVD.

I *have* installed libdvdcss as well.

Can anyone help me, I am having no luck with this so far, and not in other forums, either.

Maybe your Mplayer volume is to low... try on your number pad:

* to increase volume
/ to decrease volume

Volume was already up. No luck, but thanks a lot anyways.

I ran a the mplayer command from a xterm and checked, volume is up but some options I cannot adjust, they are not enabled, such as the CD volume.

I disabled "normalize sound" and "enable equalizor", And now it is working. I wonder why those things were causing trouble.

Oh, and BTW, I have done extensive searching on the topic. I tried to edit the default control from OSS to AlSA, but the mcedit won't let me save my change. It refers to a AO -help but I couldn't find it. Don't understand why the equalizor of the program won't work... There must be a bug having to do with the equalizer, and, perhaps, my Soundblaster sound card.

Hmmm, seems familliar... I had a problem with the EQ in gmplayer but was repaired whe I changed the ao device to oss...from sdl...

That was for gmplayer which has a diff config file... but mplayer seems to be using the EQ settings so I am happy...
