View Full Version : [ubuntu] Audio issues (playing mono instead of stereo)

August 20th, 2008, 12:05 AM
Most of my files are working fine, and I've got every codec I could find, but one of my mp4s is only playing in mono or just playing surround sound, I still can't figure it out. It's like the main dialog is muted and only various action noises are played. Anyone know of a codec that might square me away?

I have a similar problem, except that it involves every audio and video I played.

Edit: I found a possible solution in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=853491&highlight=mono+stereo

This is what I tried: From terminal: alsamixer

After that a moxer should be displayed. If it says off next to Item:Master, then press "M" and it should fox it, at least it worked for me. Otherwise, I can;t help you that much since I'm still a newbie at using linux.
