Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449203
rhythmbox appears to be playing but no sound is output
Last modified: 2008-06-02 02:35:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to play an Ogg Vorbis track in Rhythmbox produces no audible output,
even though the track position indicator progresses as normal. Sound is audible
from other application, including: Gnome terminal (beeping), amarok, audacity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. select a track to play (ogg vorbis in this case)
3. press Play
Track progess indicator progresses, but no sound is audible.
Music playing audibly.
Devices listed in gnome volume control device list:
0: HDA Intel (Alsa mixer)
1: Analog Devices AD1981 (OSS mixer)
2: Playback: ALSA PCM on front:0 (AD198x Analog) via DMA (PulseAudio mixer)
(omitted subsequent capture devices)
All volume controls are set to 100%.
I am experiencing the same. Sound work just fine if a use "gst-launch filesrc
location=someflacfile.flac ! flacdec ! pulsesink", and GNOME system sounds work
just fine too.
If I open Rhythmbox (or Totem) and start playing, everything appear to be ok,
but the application does not show up in the Pulseaudio Volume Control and no
sound is coming out of the speaker.
