Description Dominick Grift 2008-04-21 04:22:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Rhythmbox sends sound to my notebooks speakers instead of my usb headset


How reproducible:
When i attach my usb headset it works for the most part. However rhythmbxo sends
its audio to my notbook speakers instead of the usb headset.

in contrast Totem works perfect. Also the gnome desktop sounds work fine, the
gnome sound recorder works great. 

mplayer also kind of works by default ( but it works better with -ao pulse ) 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attach your usb headset
2. fire up rhythmbox
3. play a tune
  
Actual results:
the sound comes out of my notbook speakers instead of my usb headset

Expected results:
sound from headset

Additional info:
for what its worth, i couldnt get VLC to ouput to the usb device either

Is pulseaudio running? If so, you can launch pavucontrol (in the package of the
same name), and move the Rhythmbox stream from the default audio device to the
USB speakers.

If not, you can change the default output in the sound preferences of GNOME (see
the Devices tab, Rhythmbox will use the card selected in "Music and Movies").

I have tried both. PA is running. in the gnome sound properties i now have it
all set to Pulse audio server. totem , mplayer , sound recorder gnome all work fine.

in pulseaudio volume control:
Output devices:
ALSA PCM on front:0 (USB Audio) via DMA (set to default) <-- not working
ALSA PCM on front:1 (ALC262 Analog) via DMA <-- working

only the analog stream works, hth

You might need to move the Rhythmbox stream to the right output by hand though,
as Pulseaudio remembers selected outputs. What settings do you have in the sound
preferences?

oh right , indeed , sorry that option is quite good hidden. i have alter-clicked
on the rhythmbox stream and moved it to de default device and now it works

why wasnt it using the default device in the first place?

either way fixed , thanks!

All of that is a bit broken (in that, not very easily usable) for F9. For F10,
we want to rework that portion.
