So I recently made the switch to Ubuntu 10.04 with my Gateway MX8734 laptop. I got some music transferred, but Exaile, Rythmbox, and MPlayer REFUSE to play it, all giving the same error, "Failed to connect to stream: Too large" With VLC, the titlebar just blinks for a second.

I followed the following thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683 to try and fix it, but it failed. I do not know what else to do. It worked out of the box with my old desktop, not even YouTube audio works? Please help! I'm dying without music D:

Sound Card is SigmaTel HD Audio CODEC

Commands run in terminal to diagnose, feel free to read info:

Hi pivotraze,

I wonder if it is a pulse-audio problem... Can you try playing an mp3 from the commandline as follows:


mplayer -ao alsa my_file.mp3

where of course you should substitute the actual name of the file for my_file.mp3.

All the best,

Andrew

Amazingly, after a reboot, it just started working...
