Yesterday it still worked fine. But as of today my sound in Kodi 16.1 suddenly doesn't work anymore, and I see an icon now that tells me there is no sound output in the top right corner( See Screenshot).

I have a dual monitor setup, but the second monitor (where I'm watching videos from) doesn't have it's own audio source. I listen trough the default audio output of my laptop, and usually use headphones. Neither of the audio sources work in kodi now, but they keep on working outside kodi though. I played around in the system settings of kodi but nothing that I tried worked. I restarted the machine a few times, but it didn't work.

Does anybody know how to fix/approach this problem? I'm happy to tell additional information if needed.

  • Kodi is muted. Have you used some remote control app like Kore (Android) and muted it there? It happened to me once and I took a long time to figure it out. – user589808 Sep 30 '16 at 7:59
  • I have nothing like that. At least not that I know of. Any idea how to unmute? – BlueRine S Sep 30 '16 at 10:55

Well it's fairly easy. Just press the F10 key and it should toggle mute/unmute. I found out about it too just recently.

  • Thanks, it works! I must've pressed on F10 in the dark, when I tried to find the F7/F8 key for switching to primary monitor. – BlueRine S Sep 30 '16 at 12:53
  • umm I'm just too curious, who are you thanking? XD – Mina Michael Jun 18 '17 at 3:47
  • Ohh just to myself. It's fun to see someone spotted this in so much time xD – BlueRine S Jun 18 '17 at 4:23
