Didn't it work recently? I thought it did.
* Sound in other applications works?
* Please press Alt+F2, enter gstreamer-properties. What does it
list as defauls sound output? If you click Test, does it work?
* Start vlc, go to menu Tools -> Preferences. Click Audio in the
pane on the left. What does it list as Output Type. "Default"?
* Use your favorite package manager (such as Synaptic) to check
whether you have the package "vlc-plugin-pulse" installed.
