Quite recently, Rhythmbox has stopped sounding. I can't find any internal volume control in Rhythmbox and the other applications sound fine. I have Ubuntu 18.04. What could be the problem?

  • What media files does this happen to? – Robby1212 Mar 26 at 21:11
  • I only tried .mp3 – user1754322 Mar 26 at 21:24
  • In your Settings, under Sound -> Applications, is it muted or disabled there? – Robby1212 Mar 26 at 21:38

    @Robby1212 That was it! Thank you :) – user1754322 2 days ago

As noted in the comments on the question in this particular instance the issue was that Rhythmbox was muted in settings.

Navigating to Seetings -> Sound -> Applications and then making sure Rhythmbox was turned on fixed the issue.
