    Stereo via Mono Output (Oneiric Ocelot Specific)

    There are various answers to this question around the web, but none for Oneiric Ocelot specifically.
    I have a laptop with one mono speaker. Right now, when listening to music/watching movies with on-board sound, only the left channel plays through the mono speaker. How can I make both left and right channels play through the mono speaker?
    This problem does not affect me when HDMI or headphones are plugged in.

    Whoever marked this thread as solved... it isn't solved! It's a different beast, compared to the older releases, so none of the answers I've found are applicable!

    Best solution I can find so far (just got a mono external speaker) is this one. However, I get massive "clipping" at any usable volume, so it's essentially useless. However, there's a media player called potamus which has an option to mix stereo into mono, that might provide you with the best solution in terms of playing audio. Apparently, vlc might also have a similar option.
