View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound from only one application at a time....need a fix

May 21st, 2008, 07:52 PM
I can only play sound from one application at a time. So for instance, If I'm playing music (or even if i pause a song) and try to put on, say, a youtube video, there won't be any sound from the video. In order to get sound i need to close my music player and refresh the video page.

Anyway, this happens with any two applications that try to play sound at the same time.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? I'm currently running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.
