VLC doesn't save ALSA configuration, problems result
Hey everyone. I've been having some trouble with the audio configuration of my VLC player, and was wondering if anyone has had similar trouble. Currently it only plays audio through my headset, regardless of whatever my default sound card is set to at the time.
Long story short, I've tried to set my VLC audio output module to ALSA in preferences -> audio, and set the device to my laptop's sound card instead of the headset, but this ultimately doesn't do anything. I've noticed that even when I click "save settings," the audio module settings all go back to the default when I close and re-open the player. It's really become quite bothersome, which is a shame because I've loved VLC ever since Windows.
Has anyone noticed any similar issues with VLC, or does anyone have any advice to offer for this problem?
