Sound and video seem to be the Achilles Heel of *buntu from the many
posts concerning these 2 subjects. But, I have to hasten to add, is that
this is not really restricted to *buntu.
and see if this helps to solve your problem(s).
People will disagree with me, but what I do is to simply uninstall
pulseaudio and at the same time install alsamixergui; then start
alsamixergui (using ALT-F2) and make sure that all the correct channels
have been activated. For example, with me, and I use the SoundBlaster
Audigy card, I have to activate the Analog Output Jack.
Some others say that if you are using pulseaudio to use pavucontrol and
make sure that you have the correct inputs/outputs selected.
Personally, I just get rid of pulseaudio and get on with it.....
