This problem started with Kernel 3.3.9 I think, I can't be certain, it was about three or four Kernel updates away from where I am now anyway.

Problem is as soon as I updated my kernel, sound vanished, videos didn't play and this was not just limited to my system it affected web videos as well and still does.

When I open Banshee and go to play my music, nothing happens When I open VLC the play bar moves but there's no sound When I use Movie Player the play bar skips over 3 minutes in less than 30 seconds When I use Youtube there's no audio, the play bar skips and the video is hurried as well

I had managed to get my sound working reasonably well before but now nothing. Help?

Hi, Could you give us more information?

From terminal Copy & paste

lspci | grep -i audio

Paste all that displayed.

Do you have enabled rpmfusion and Livna?? if this is not correct, then

From a terminal

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck'

su -c 'rpm -ivh'

After install all codecs

su -c 'yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg ffmpeg mencoder ffmpeg2theora mplayer libdvdcss'

Do you have installed flash plugin?

rpm -ivh

rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

yum -y install flash-plugin

recheck your tests (music, videos)

If it no work then

Open a terminal and type




Paste all that displayed.
