#1113 closed System Defect (worksforme)

Amarok not playing files, not showing context information

Reported by: q/pa Owned by:

Component: Misc Version: 10.0-RELEASE
Keywords: amarok Cc: trac-bugs@…


PCBSD 10.0.2:

Since I installed PCBSD 10 Amarok does not play any music files (tested with MP3 and OGG) from local or remote locations. In PCBSD 9.x I did not have any problems with Amarok. First I tried Phonon-GStreamer, then I installed Phonon-VLC but it is the same with both of them. I ran the program from a terminal with

amarok --debug

But I do not know what to make of the log file. One thing strikes me, though: Although the system says I am using Phonon-VLC in the log file only GStreamer does show up, VLC is not mentioned anywhere. I try to attach the log file to this ticket.

I forgot to say that otherwise I do not have any problems with sound.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

The cause is probably the switch to PulseAudio? support. Start playing a file in Amarok, then open Control Panel -> Pulse Audio Mixer.

Look at the playback tab / output devices. Its probably just sending sound to the wrong output device. (The log file makes it look like its using pulse on your box)

The problem seems to be resolved by one of the pkg updates. I could not reproduce it. Although this is still an issue in my 10.0.1-RELEASE installation.
