    Re: no hdmi option in sound settings

    You probably need to post info about:
    - video card
    - graphics driver
    - kernel version
    - alsa version
    - any HT amp/AVR in the loop ?
    - *buntu distro 12.04 ?

    If you are using a stock std distro then some of that can be guessed..

    Re: no hdmi option in sound settings

    *buntu takes a conservative approach to the newer intel iCPU/iGFX..
    It defaults to a no h/w acceleration & an old intel driver.
    This also impacts on the HDMI audio functionality.

    In a terminal:
    aplay -l

    You could try install/run "pavucontrol". Check out the configuration & then output tabs..
    Pulse audio is the system wide audio server in ubuntu.
    Post your finding ...

    IMO to get the best from the later iCPU/iGPU need a later kernel & intel driver (i915/i965) from xorg-edgers ppa.
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

    The xorg-edgers ppa is under consistent development & can be unstable. Could be tricky to un-install/remove..
    The VA-API stuff prob won't work without xorg-edgers..

    To get h/w video decode working (VA-API) install:
    i965-va-driver
    libva-intel-vaapi-driver

    There are gstreamer vaapi plugins if you use that..

    VLC & mplayer (& mythtv, XBMC) have VA-API support.
