    Question sound and video problem after recent update

    Hello.
    After recent upgrade which contained the newer kernel ( 2.6.35-30-generic).
    I've started to experience problems with sound and video in programs - deadbeef and totem.

    Both of them dont play any sounds and video in totem is skipping every 3-4 seconds (the same applies to flash videos in browser).

    As I run deadbeef from the command line I dont get any significant information.

    I run ubuntu 10.10 amd 64. I tried to reinstal gstreamer my programs and codecs with no luck.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Post your system specs pls so we know if it could be a hardware problem that the kernel has

    Re: sound and video problem after recent update

    Im fairly new to ubuntu and linux myself, so i can't help you. At least others will have it easier to help you. Oh - did you try to install the drivers? Go to your system administration and check if you have the latest drivers

    Re: sound and video problem after recent update

    I've re-installed the video drivers (ati propertiary). So the video dosn't skip anymore. Still trying to resolve the issue with sound.

    I've also narrowed it down - the sound in sound menu works when I try to test it. So I guess it's something with codecs.

    Ok so this is what I did (I don't know if all this step are necessary)
    - reinstalled kernel+ videodrivers
    - reinstalled all gstreamer
    - removed config files from .pulse folder

    Now I have my sound back
