No sound in vlc media player - FC 17 64

I don't get any sound when I play a video DVD with vlc media player.

This is on a FC 17 64 bit machine, Xfce spin.

I have sound when I play Youtube videos in Firefox.
I have sound when I play sound files from xmms.
(Don't know what Mplayer would do. I find it's interface too mysterious.)

Anyone know what problem would be peculiar to vlc ?

Re: No sound in vlc media player - FC 17 64

VLC comes complete with a library of codecs and can play just about anything. Do you have sound in VLC when playing back other media files, such as mp3, mp4, avi or flash videos? Or, is it just when playing back a DVD?

If you don't get sound from any media type, check the volume controls/mute in VLC.

I assume you installed VLC from the RPM Fusion repos so you could just try..

yum reinstall vlc

Perhaps try Tools -> Preferences, pick Audio on the left pane, then fiddle with the "output module" setting. For one of my machines, it seems to need "ALSA audio output" to work. Also, you might well need to quit and re-start vlc when you've changed this setting. Good luck!

( I found that vlc wouldn't play mp3 files either.)

Thank you. That fixed it, I changed the output module to ALSA and restarted vlc.
