    no.. it was somthing with the sound mixer....equalizer..
    i don't really understand the 3 errors in the terminal...the lines in the script....
    its a shame that tomorrow the world cup is starting and my sopcast is gone

    i saw that the problem in fact is with vlc...
    in that thread they speak about it in page 39! and it seems i have the 1.1.0rc vlc!!!
    i dont know how...maybe with the system update....
    any way i asked them if i can downgrade vlc and solve the issue...we will see...
    but its a big relief... problem found...thx
