Have you tried selecting the output device in the sound settings menu from default to HDMI? I had to do this while watching a movie! Hope this helps. Thanks

I am guessing this is because on start up we detect the audio device as being your head phones otherwise we use the speakers. You can change the default play back device similar to how windows does it. Just go to settings and look for sound settings, or just click the volume tray icon and click settings that way. After that select the correct device.

This is a highly subjective question because as a general rule cheaper hardware = worse quality sound/graphics. The reason why this problem is worse on Linux is because the hardware vendor has written special drivers to get around hardware limitations and all Linux developers can do is guess at what they've done to fix problems. You can't just compare ...

I also have the Dolby Advanced Audio v2 in my Lenovo laptop. I understand that you do not have the Dolby 'feel' because louder music tends to 'feel' of being of better quality, of course there is some difference that it makes, but I have the idea not much. You can increase the volume in the audio settings with allowing volume to go beyond 100% then it ...

To have DVI sound coming through an HDMI adapter, you need to be using a DVI-D connector with a graphics card that supports transmitting audio over DVI. From Wikipedia: DVI-D devices output HDMI signals, many including audio, (examples: ATI 3000-series and NVIDIA GTX 200-series video cards), and some multimedia displays input that HDMI signal, ...

It seems that there are bluetooth dongles which forge the Broadcom identifier even though they don't 100% follow the Bluetooth spec.

I was able to get system sound working by adding my UID to the audio group. I still am not getting audio in Chrome however, but that might just be a bug in Chrome at the moment, as was suggested here. If anyone has any more Chrome specific suggestions, those would still be greatly appreciated.

Sennheiser BTD 500 USB, Bluetooth 3.0 provides APT-X on Linux including Ubuntu. It does it by posing as a audio device, not a bluetooth radio. So it handles the APT-X in hardware rather than software on the OS side.

I noticed the same problem once I got the most recent updates. I see you're also using alsa-mixer. If you're using it because PulseAudio was giving you problems, then my solution might work.

I did a fresh install of 14.04.1 in December, and have this issue as well. I did not have any issue with Xubuntu 14.10. I am still having other sound-related issues though; Ubuntu randomly jumps from HDMI to Analog to No sound at each reboot, but I assumed the VLC error was just an offshoot of that. But, it sounds like this is a different bug altogether. ...

In case others run into this issue, I've had this come up when installing pipelight on Ubuntu 14.04 with the AMD Catalyst 14.6 drivers using an A10-7800 APU.

The problem is Hydrogen (as Ardour) launch jackd at startup but don't close it at exit: But you can run killall jackd in a terminal after Hydrogen exit.

First, download the audio file you want to have it play. ...
