Totem will no longer play any sounds, nor will VLC until I restart my system. Does some body have a command line that could fix my sound issue(s) without rebooting?
I don't know if it is the same case but what I do when this happens, I just type in terminal:

killall pulseaudio
Somehow, pulseaudio interferes with my Rhythmbox, Totem, and all the other multimedia stuff I run that needs sounds.

Again, I'm not sure if we have the same case.
