View Full Version : [kubuntu] 2 multimedia problems

November 2nd, 2008, 03:12 PM

today I installed new Kubuntu 8.10, and I have 2 problems with multimedia:
1. Audacious will not play music (mp3),
2. VLC player has a problem with skins: it's not able to bring back default skin.

Does anyone know hot to solve this? I prefer Audacious player for music, but it can't play, only can with Amarok. Maybe Amarok is great player, but it's ugly for my thinking.

Has your Audacious ever played Mp3s?
I know it is suppose to.
Do you have mp3 codecs installed?
Do mp3s play in Totem aka. Movie Player?

Audacious never played mp3s. Amarok does, so codecs are installed. Other player do play everything: mp3, divx, xvid....only Audacious won't play at all.

My friend installed Audacious on PC and it doesn't play too on new Kubuntu. Sound works in all applications except in Audacious.

It has to be selected ALSA as current output plugin!
