• No sound in vlc


    i’ve got a fresh install of atergos. at the moment i have no sound from vlc or any other program running. but playing youtube videos works fine.
    in pavucontrol vlc is listed and set to “internal audio analog stereo”. in the settings of vls under “audio” it is set to “pulseaudio”. do i miss something?
    thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    While playing a youtube video check pavucontrol to see where the sound output is coming from then compare it to what is shown while VLC is playing. Maybe there is a difference that you can adjust.

  • youtube output is ALSA-plugin so i changed the setting in vlc to ALSA but still no sound. i tried every combination. also, i don’t have any system sounds as well and no sound in zsnes.
    i assume there is something wrong in some settings, but i don’t know where to look.

  • What desktop are you using? Write your journal log to a file with the command below then post it here:

    sudo journalctl -b 0 \> journal.log && tar cvf journal.tar journal.log
    

    Cheers!

  • i’m using xfce. i attached the journal.tar because i am not able to upload the .log

    EDIT: just found out that clementine is also working. so for now only vlc/system is lagging of sound

  • I didn’t have sound in Openbox until I remove Compton package.
    Edit: If you have compton, this thread indicated that VLC or mplayer need to be added to an exclude list.
