Audio doesn't work on some apps

Audio works on Skype, VLC, Audacity, and MPlayer. Sound does not work at all in Totem. System sounds don't work. In Second Life, sound effects work, but voice chat does not. In Plane Shift, no audio works. I have followed all suggestions on This made Audio in work for Skype and Audacity, but not for Second Life, and not for Planshift or system sounds.

    Yes, that is a logical solution. But I failed to mention that I already did that several times. Didn't help.

Microphone used with skype program stopped working after technition fixed email issues. He has no idea why


Try changing your sound mode in skype from ALSA to OSS (I know OSS isn't great but skype likes it more, ALSA support is still new). Then close any other application that could possibly be using sound, and restart skype.

The major problem with OSS is that it allows only one program to access the sound at any time, which is probaby why your audacity isn't detecting the input either - there could be a setting somewhere set to oss. SO just try closing everything like I've said above.
If it still does not work then First go to tools-->options-->sound Devices-->(UN) tick, Let Skype Adjust My Sound Settings.-->save
Reboot/Restart SKYPE i.e Log Out and Back in USING your password.

With AGC disabled you can monitor AND ADJUST the microphone level DURING A VOICE CALL using windows recording sound properties. Just drag the slider up or down for best volume without clipping. When the call ends the NEW setting that you just made manually is written back to shared.xml and will be used for the next call.
Attention: MS sound recorder will NOT do this job
Retest and see if its OK.

If not do below:

%AppData%\Skype\ in the address bar of Windows Explorer and it will display all files, regardless of whether they’re hidden or not

(You need to quit SKYPE first):

Use any editor like Word Pad or Word, as shared.xml is a real text file. For Windows XP, you can just double click, amend and save. But you MUST EXIT SKYPE

You should check your Shared.xml

In <VoiceEng> You need to insert <AGC>0</AGC> (see below)

<AGC>0</AGC> <------ADD this line and set to zero

For Vers 2.5:
255 is max volume and 0 = low. Range is 0 (off) to 255 (maxim)
255 could be much too high, so please reduce if necessary
For Vers 2.6
100 is maxim volume and 0 = low. Range is 0 (off) to 100 maxim.

If the volume is too high, the sound will be distorted and clipped

Set for best audio quality, use echo123.

With AGC disabled you can monitor AND ADJUST the microphone level DURING A VOICE CALL using windows recording sound properties. Just drag the slider up or down for best volume without clipping. When the call ends the NEW setting that you just made manually is written back to shared.xml and will be used for the next call.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

How can i play videos in fedora10

This is what the VLC website says:

Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 Use RPM Fusion for F9 and F10 (available for x86, x86_64, ppc and ppc64)
Install rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm for F9 and f10
$> su -
#> rpm -ivh
#> yum install vlc
#> yum install mozilla-vlc (optionnal)
I'm not a Fedora man myself so hopefully this makes sense to you.

If not I'll see what I can dig up.

Best of luck!
