Unable to play mp3s in XMMS
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:28:54 EDT
Description of Problem:
XMMS will not play mp3's on my computer. It's not that you cannot hear the
sound, xmms just sits there and does nothing when I click the play button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use xmms to play an mp3
xmms won't play
xmms should play and I should hear the sound
All other media players work. I can watch videos in xine, for example.
Running 'redhat-config-soundcard' works as well - I can hear Linus.
I have an ASUS A7M266-D motherboard with an on-board soundcard.
The kernel is using the cmpci sound module that shipped with Limbo.
Is this in KDE? Or in GNOME? Which Output Plugin is configured in XMMS?
Works for me, both playing mp3s from disk and streaming them.
Works for me as well.
This is from within Gnome.
I've tried changing the output plugin to all four available options, with no
might be something related to esd. I get this once in a while on redhat 7.3
I'm a bit baffled now. Deleting the .xmms directory, and a reboot of the machine
appears to have cured the problem. Perhaps the sound module got mangled when the
machine booted before. Weird.
