Ubuntu 11.04 Banshee 2.0

I can hear the sound of my files from any other program. However, Banshee 2.0 (the Ubuntu new player) seems to have a bug or something, and I can hear anything.

Have anyone having this problem as well, or had this problem ? If so, how can it be solved ?

Maybe volume level for banshee is 0? Check in advanced sound settings, output tab, volumes per application – Extender May 3 '11 at 9:45
Where should I look for those advanced sound settings ? Inside Banshee ? On System > Preferences > Sound ? – MEM May 3 '11 at 10:55
If I go to System -> Preferences -> Sound -> Applications - I can see Banshee and the volume is at maximum level. – MEM May 3 '11 at 10:58

Found it.

If we go to:

System > Preferences > Sound and under the tap "Output" we should choose the correct option.

Perhaps a last update as changed those settings.

Thanks Extender.
