No sound when playing DVDs with totem-xine


This is a real stumper. I have had the same exact problem on two different distributions. I had it on FC4, and now I have it on Ubuntu 5.10. I am trying to play DVDs on totem-xine. They play fine if you like silent theatre. I personally like to hear the dialog, music, and cool sound effects when I watch movies, so I decided to download xine-ui. I get sound perfectly fine when using xine-ui. However, the problem is that both totem-xine and xine-ui use the same libraries, so why am I getting sound out of one and not the other? I would really like to consolidate all my multimedia needs to one application (totem-xine), and the only hold out is sound with DVDs. Any help would be appreciated. If you need to know what I have done to set up Ubuntu 5.10 for multimedia, here it is:

Installing multimedia capabilities on Ubuntu 5.10

Make sure the repsoitories are set up in /etc/apt/sources.list as shown below

Yes, I have tried xine and gxine, and they do work. However, I would really like to get totem-xine working as well. If you or anyone else has any suggestions on how to get totem-xine working, please don't hesitate to share.

Thanks in advance to all respondants

Robert
