Happy New Year Everyone. I went to play music last night and the sound in vlc isnt coming through. It is coming through on all other music players I have. I ALWAYS use VLC everyday and I haven't done any updates at all and the sound just all of a sudden went away. The video plays wonderfully but the sound stopped coming through. Also the sound on mp3's isnt working either. No one else has used my pc so I dont know what could have happened. Any ideas?

Also I sm udinh linuxmint 8 helena.

You sure your volume didn't get reset? Was this after a suspend/hibernate? Check your 'Tools > Preferences > Audio > Output Module' menu and toggle that between pulse and default.
