Ok...I'm not sure when this started but I know it wasn't long ago, and nothing will play, my Videos and my Music will not play unless done with VLC Media player, but I want to play my music and videos with Songbird and the others. I have the Gstreamer plug ins and everything.

some people have fixed their sound issues by uninstalling pulseaudio and just use alsa.

And how do i do that?

If it's a problem thats recently surfaced, then I doubt its pulseaudio.

Also, every time I try to get rid of pulse audio it destroys my gnome install.

However if you want to disable it safely to see if it is causing your problems you can use this command.

killall pulseaudio

Goto System > Preferences > Sessions, then add the command there.
