Hi!

I'm having trouble with Totem, it's not playing audio anymore, it just stopped all of the sudden.

I've got audio elsewhere, but not in totem. I even got audio in the totem-plugin in firefox.

What's the problem?

There must be something wrong with the gstreamer codecs, hard to pinpoint though. What is the outcome of the command:

dpkg -l gstreamer* | grep ^ii
In my system, the attached packages are installed.

You may try your luck with totem-xine, same program but with xine backend:

sudo aptitude install totem-xine

I've got the same problem, though to me it looks pulse-related. Something with my soundcard being used by another program...I'll keep an eye on this thread...
You don't have two boards by the way ( onboard and an pci one ?? )

Great news! But is your solution persistent between sessions?

No, I'm afraid it's just a temporary solution.
Though it's not hard to run "killall pulseaudio" at login.
