Sound/Media...not playing? o.O F17

Hi folks,

Me again because now I'm worried. Before Kernel update 3.4.8 (i think) my sound worked perfectly, I even found that I had to roll back to get my sound to play again.

Could someone help me diagnose the problem? The sound 'works' with Fedora, but it doesn't like playing media any more, not entirely sure why. I thought upgrading would solve this problem. It hasn't. Here are the symptoms.

Banshee > Navigate to album > double click track == Doesn't play, the play bar doesn't move, the play icon doesn't change to a pause icon. No sound. 

Navigate to album folder > right click music > open with VLC > scroll bar moves but no sound. 

Navigate to album folder > right click music > open with Movie Player > scroll bar skips seconds and will apparently play a 3 minute track in under 30 seconds. Albeit with no sound.

Navigate to youtube > select video > play >... scroll bar skips seconds and will apparently play a 5 minute track in under 30 seocnds. Albeit with no sound and sped up visual.
All help would be appreciated.
