Hello community. First this question will sound like some others that I've seen discussed elsewhere but not sufficiently to resolve my issue.

What I'm Trying and Is it Possible?

I've been trying to play WAV files through the internal speaker of my AOpen Mini PC (MP915-B) using command line utilities on Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS. I can play WAV files trough the external line out. However, if I disconnect that connection - no matter how I've fiddled with the mixer - I can't get WAV files to play through the internal speaker.

I will go into some detail next but the first question I want to confirm is that the MP915-B is wired to enable the sound "card" to play through the internal speaker. I've not been able to confirm this anywhere or to find the schematics. Assuming this should be possible...

What I'v Tried (leaving out details of the journey)

It's not so important but I'm running the following command to play the audio (again it works with external speakers but not the internal - and again I do disconnect the external connection when I try that).

Code:
aplay -vv sample.wav
I've tried all kinds of settings using amixer and alsamixer to route the CODEC output to the internal speaker. I was especially hopeful that the control named Beep would get me going but it hasn't.

Code:
$ amixer

Have Any Ideas?
So, that's it. Do you know if what I'm trying is possible and if so what might I be missing?

Super thanks!
