View Full Version : [ubuntu] Amarok Not Playing Music

August 29th, 2010, 02:43 AM
Have Amarok installed. Starts up great and functions fine EXCEPT it will not play any music! When you open a file the window with the song name appears at the top of the screen as if it had started it and it even loads up the lyrics. But the progress indicator remains greyed out and you don't get any sound.

What could be causing this?

Are you plaing mp3s? If so have you seen this (http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/MP3:Kubuntu)?

I tried doing both of those. In the end the only thing that got me sound was switching from the xine to the gstreamer backend.
