Change sound engine? artsd to gstreamer on system and amarok?


Hi

I am running suse 9.3 and my main sound engine is the artsd, but i don't want to run the artsd sound engine, i want to run gstreamer. Is there a way to make gstreamer my default sound engine. my sound card is an AC'97 on a laptop if that helps. Plus i cant get gstreamer to work on amarok, I've done all the updates through guru and i still cant get it to work.

So my questions are how do you change the sound engine in linux itself and how to make gstreamer work in amarok

Thanks!

I think your getting slightly mixed up with what GStreamer and Arts are. There basically sound/multimedia engines/servers that read sound files and output stuff to the Linux sound system which will be ALSA or OSS.

Programs have to be written with these systems in mind. You can't convert Linux to use Gstreamer. Gstreamer actually talks to Linux. not the other way around.

To get Gstreamer to work in Amarok could take a bit of fiddling, do you have ALSA available? or are you still using OSS? pick which ever matches your system to use in the Gstramer engine, either osssink or alsasink.

I've always found GStreamer tempramental, and its difficult to give any other advice about setting it up without a lot more details about your system.

What you need to tell us is what type of Sound card, what kernel version would be a good start.

Hi,

Have you tried running the command 'gst-register-0.8' in the console as super-user. This should register all the GStreamer plugins on your system. Take a look at this post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ight=gstreamer Worked for me.

Hope it helps,
Tofo
