In ubuntu 12.04, sound is not working in VLC player, when i play any videos, but work perfect when i use to play videos in Ubuntu default "Movies Player". does any body know the solution.
Yes, @crate's answer worked for me.
VLC would mute or go silent after pausing. I went into Tools > Preferences > Audio. I had to change output module to
ALSA audio output. But that, in itself didn't work. I had to then change device to
HDMI 0 HDMI Audio Output. Now it works great. Of course, you'll have to alter your device to what'll work on your rig. I'm running VLC 2.02 Two flower on Crunchbang Waldorf X64.
Yes, It worked for me as well , tools > preferences > audio from default to ALSA audio output. close your all file and re-open your video file through vlc. It will work only for VLC player. It is just a temporary solution. because for other media player this solution will not work. So, still this issue exist with other media player.
