I find when using pulse audio that the application 'pavucontrol' is very helpful in setting up one's audio. If not done already, you could install that application, and then use it when trying to play multimedia to tune your application's audio.
What applications have you used to try to play audio ?
Could you provide more information so as to better understand this problem? You can do so by running the diagnostic script alsa-info.sh. In Fedora-15 I think it is located here:
In some other distributions it is located here:
and you can even download and run it as follows:
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
or if that fails do it step by step and download:
then run the script alsa-info.sh (copy and paste this into a terminal:
Run that script with your PC connected to the Internet and select the SHARE/UPLOAD option. That will post a diagnostic assessment of your PC's audio configuration to an alsa site and give you the URL/address where it is located. Please post that address here.
But having typed the above, its possible simply using 'pavucontrol' will solve your problem.
