    No sound via HDMI (Fedora 26 and 25)

    I have no sound on a HDMI monitor with speakers (I tried some other linux distros and they didn't have this problem). With F25 the sound sometimes appeared, with F26 it hasn't happened yet. If it's of any help (I have no idea), here is the output of alsa-info.sh:

    I would be grateful for any advice.

    If you are using Gnome, have you instructed Gnome to use the HDM interface? (Digital output)

    SystemTray==»sound==»Digital Sound.

    I've had mixed luck connecting an F25 laptop to the HDMI input on my TV. Sometimes sound works, sometimes not and I've been fiddling with the options in pulseaudio. When it starts to work, I'm not sure if it's from my fiddling or if it just decided to work. Gnome isn't my issue as that's not even loaded on this laptop... is XFCE install.

    Re: No sound via HDMI (Fedora 26 and 25)

    Same here, I also do not have HDMI sound. In fact, there is only one situation when I do have HDMI sound and that is when playing YouTube video in the browser. It works only with YouTube, but not with any other video stream.

    I have learned how to use this YouTune sound to enable HDMI sound for other applications too.

    So my workaround is following:
    1. start any YouTube video while on HDMI
    2. then start another video that I want to watch (in SMPlayer, VLC or Browser)
    3. when my video is playing, pause/mute YouTube video
    4. now I can watch my video over HDMI with sound

    However, whenever I pause/rewind/forward the video, I lose the HDMI sound. Then I must repeat the YouTube procedure again to restart the sound
