View Full Version : [ubuntu] no sound when play video/audio with xine

August 31st, 2008, 06:23 PM
First, my system (hardy) works ok, until now I use Mplayer to play. I have almost plugin/codec/etc: gstreamer, w32codecs ... installed. I like the interface of xine-ui, so I install xine. It can play every files I want, but without sound. Help plz, any idea will be appreciated.

I found the solution:
open file: ~/.xine/config
change the following line:

#audio.pulseaudio_device: --> audio.pulseaudio_device: pulseaudio

and it works!

You can also specify the default volume at startup:

#audio.volume.mixer_volume --> audio.volume.mixer_volume:100
#audio.volume.remember_volume --> audio.volume.remember_volume:1

Just wanted to thank you for posting back your solution. This is exactly how it should go :). I hate people posting up questions but leaving out the answer when they eventually find it.
