I have no problems with my C5D in Ubuntu 14.04. My PulseAudio daemon.conf has the following changes, which you can try and see if these solve your problem: default-sample-format = s24le default-sample-rate = 48000

On command line try alsamixer it will open a "gui" with several columns for each output, move with the left arrow key to the second one <headphnes>, and with the up arrow key, increase the volume. It worked for me with the headphones and subwoofer.

I just searched the entire source repository for Ubuntu Touch for "AMR" and there is nothing in there that suggests AMR-WB is used, so the simple answer to your question is: No. Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news…

Someone over on HP's support forums found a solution for the lack of sound. You should make sure you back up your computer first, as it does involve modifying GRUB's configuration. The steps are: Edit grub config by doing: 'sudo vim /etc/default/grub' Edit the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash'" To: ...

I found out that what needs to be done for it to change is this: 1. Navigate to Settings > Sound > Sound Effects, and select what you want as the new default: 2. Close the Window. 3. Restart GDM with: sudo service gdm restart The step I missed was restarting GDM.

I'd say the best course of action would be to file a bug against that "Stream-Player" or if it has no bug tracker then contacting its author/maintainer. a) It should recover gracefully from a disconnection (for which ever reason) b) It should not prevent you from starting to play something Also: Have you tried killing/stopping the app?

Same situation here (15.04), after backup and restore /home. I did: rm -r ~/.pulse*; pulseaudio -k and also had a "Permission denied". Then I realized that my home dir didn't belongs to me. After "chown" the sounds got back immediately. I did: chown user:user /home/user -R Changing "user" to my username.

This might be the Intel sound card entering power save mode. Check whether power save in currently enabled via: cat /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save If this returns 1, power save is enabled; it returns 0 otherwise.

Here is another method. That might work. Go into terminal and type in this command winecfg This should open a menu that will have some features on it. Go to sound and hit test sound to see if it is working. You can maybe mess around a little bit here to select your default system input and output sounds. I have mine all set to system default. Although I ...

Maybe it is because your audio cord is not plugged in fully. Also make sure your audio drivers are up to date and are the right audio drivers for your speakers. Maybe your audio cord is broken. Or just try reinstalling wine.

This issue is already known. In oder to bring about a speedy fix, I recommend heading over to Launchpad and mark the bug as affecting you too and also subscribe to it. This will increase the 'heat' for this issue and hopefully we can have it fixed soon. As a (unsatisfactory) work around I resolved to not use notifications in my calendar events for the time ...

What is your setup like? Do you have Audio monitors or is it built in laptop speakers? Are you using a sound card? Have you tried the same audio file in another computer?

What worked for me was asking pulseaudio to exit: pactl exit This causes the audio device not to be in use anymore. Then I reloaded the module for my sound card: sudo rmmod snd_au8830 && sudo modprobe -v snd_au8830 Finally, I restarted pulseaudio: start-pulseaudio-x11 I also re-uploaded the sample I was using for the bell sound. ...

This happened to meet too, for some reason the CPUs were on 4 of 8. I use a Macbook Pro running OS X 10 and Windows 7 using VBox. When I put the CPUs down to 1 it started working much better. check it out.

It's most likely due to which sound device is selected for play through. Left click on the speaker at the top right of the screen (assuming unity desktop) and you'll find Sound Settings... Click that. After clicking on Sound Settings... the following screen will load: Notice Play sound through on the left side of the Output Tab. Based on your ...

Good news! I've have just purchased one of these and plugged it into my Ubuntu 15.04 box, and was somewhat surprised and relieved to see it appear in the device lists - 2 inputs, 2 outputs and midi in/out! I only just got it yesterday, so I've tested the inputs, but not the outputs yet, or the midi (though the midi ports are there in alsa), since I'll need ...

I reinstalled 15.04 overtop the existing installation and the problem has gone away. Sadly my display is now set at 1024x768 but I hope a little tweaking will enable my correct video settings.

When you are playing audio via different applications, go to Sound option from system settings and select tab Applications. Then you will be able to see volume settings for each applications that currently play sound. eg: vlc player, Alsa audio plugin etc. You can then set volume for each applications. Hope this might help you.

Have you tried to reinstall pulse audio and alsa. Run these commands: sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio sudo apt-get remove alsa-base then run: sudo apt-get install alsa-base sudo apt-get install pulseaudio After doing that if that just to make sure everything restarts run this command sudo pulseaudio -k && sudo alsa force-reloa

According to the link in the other answer, you may have to edit the following file to enable 5.1 audio. Run the following command: sudo nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf Then, press CTRL + W, type: channels = 2 and then press ENTER to take you to the line you need to edit. Now, change the 2 to 6 and remove the ; character and the following space at the ...

First, return everything to default in the config files.

OK, I'm an amateur RF engineer, so I know roughly what's happening. Either your sound card or the headphones themselves are picking up the RF energy from a local AM or shortwave radio station. The wave is being rectified in the headphones and the audio is reproduced. This can be solved by using shielded cables, and by buying RFI eliminating snap on chokes ...

Have you check that the applications themselves are not muted (I knonw this sounds stupid) or muted or set to very low levels in sound settings? You can also check with pavucontrol if the application is is set to use your USB sound bar, not something else. Try restarting PulseAudio by killing it with pulseaudio -k or replugging the USB audio device, some ...

You can adjust the sound settings for USB using: Go to sound settings from the volume options on the right. I you have plugged in USB speaker then it shows setting options as Analog Output Analog Audio. Click on it and adjust volume.

Possible workaround for the sync problem: mplayer has a command-line option to adjust the delay between sound an image, so you could regain sync this way. The command would be mplayer -delay X /path/to/videofile where X is the delay in seconds. Negative values of X mean that the image will be delayed, and positive values mean the sound will be delayed.

After some googling I found this bug report on launchpad in which someone posted a "workaround" that is working for me. Configured VLC with the settings below by going to Tools->preferencs.

Audacity has sound settings. On the top left go to Edit Preferences Devices and in Devices choose which device you want your sound to play through. Click OK and test to see if that solves your problem. I'm using version 2.1.0 which you will find under Help and About Audacity at the top and that works.

If you are using PulseAudio, you should be able to do it by running pavucontrol. Go to output devices and see if you can select another output there.

The important part here is where you are plugging the headset into? If you plug a 4-pin CTIA headset into a laptops' headphone jack and there is another microphone jack next to it then this is usually not going to work, you need an adapter in that case. Newer laptops have only one CTIA compatible headphone jack where these headsets work fine and you would ...

Ubuntu's built in sound manager doesn't support USB headsets. I would recommend PulseAudio (https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/pavucontrol/) over the default sound manager anyways just because of the ease of use. Happy Travels!

You could use Fraps, which is paid application but really good. It probably would need to have Wine installed, which can emulate Windows programs. Then there is Bandicam, it is free-to-use but there is 10 minute limit until you buy it. At least was. Fraps in my opinion is way easier to use, but Bandicam might have some better features.

I found the solution! It was not related to chromium or firefox, it a configuration setting.

Yes, the red light you're seeing is in fact the optical audio data. The headphone jack output on your Macbook Pro doubles as an optical out.

Mine, by default, was set very low. Since ...
