View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't play two audio sources at same time

August 20th, 2011, 03:15 PM
I've had this issue for a while now, if two things try to play a sound at once, the audio gets very distorted and low pitched.
Like, if I"m playing music on rhythmbox and I get a skype alert, it messes up. If a flash ad has audio and I'm watching a movie, it messes up.
Even if I have something in VLC paused, I still can't play a youtube video, I have to close VLC to get the audio to work.
I've tried looking around but I can't seem to find what the issue is. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04
