View Full Version : [ubuntu] Solved audio problem

Just in case it helps others... I was unable to play mp3s although audio on my system seemed to be working fine (startup drums and so forth were working)

Ubuntu said it had installed the mp3 codec yet when I double-clicked an mp3 to play it in totem or in rythmbox, it wouldn't play. It wouldn't even advance silently through the song.

I went to the System->Preferences->Sound and changed all "Autodetect" boxes to "ALSA" and now everything seems to work fine. Totem works, Rythmbox works. All is well now.
