- Ubuntu refuses to output audio via HDMI 4 answers
Running Ubuntu 14.04. Recently my sound for Youtube, Spotify, VLC etc. stopped working. However, changing the sound makes a little "bleep" noise and going into the test sound from settings works fine, with or without headphones. So all SFX noises are working fine but sound from a program isn't.
I've checked mute buttons, program sound levels in settings, rebooting, and obviously tried many different programs. The problem may have started after using an HDMI hookup. Any ideas and suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!
Worked it out, using "PulseAudio Volume Control" (
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol) and changing the output sources from HDMI to internal analog. Not sure why these weren't showing up in system settings...
