View Full Version : [ubuntu] Only the startup music plays

May 28th, 2009, 12:28 PM
I am using the latest version of Ubuntu 9.04.

About a week ago the sound stopped playing on web sites such as you tube. I have now been in to check Amarok 2, the first time I have opened it since the upgrade and the sound is not playing there either. Whereas the you tube video progresses without any sound the amarok track is not even moving along the progress line.

Although a competent front end user I'm afraid I need talking through it when it comes to command line work.

Thank you for our help in advance.

To get the sound working in Amarok 2 you may need to install the phonon-backend-xine package. I don't know about your YouTube problem, I'm afraid.

Thanks for that Amarok is now working but there is still not sound through you tube or Google videos.

If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.
