xmms2 is the only program that will play music on my computer. no other programs work. ive tried amarok, songbird, rhythmbox, and now banshee. banshee would be the perfect software since it hasnt crashed like amarok. but theres 1 problem all of these players have had. they wont play anything. i click play, the icon changes to w/e it changes to(pause or stop depending on the program) but the time counter stays at 0:00 and no sound at all. it happens with all tracks. mp3, flac, and ogg have been tried and not 1 works.

i have no idea whats going on.

roguehart@Ubuntu:~$ banshee

thats the output of banshee when its run from console. that last error is not the problem.

here is the amarok output

roguehart@Ubuntu:~$ amarok

i have the codecs. i assume the drivers are installed because amarok worked at one point in time.

youtube videos still play sound no problem. videos arent an issue either. its just my music

sometimes on ubuntu you may have sound issues when leaving a browser open and when you try to play music it doesnt work, the reason i mention this is because i had that problem, anyways i dont know if ubuntu studio has the same paths to certain things but this is how i fixed my problem in ubuntu

1)Click system>preferences> and click sound

2) In sound set all the options to alsa

3) under default mixer tracks set the device to analog devices (oss mixer)

***For option 3 you might wanna mess around to see which device works perfect for you, because i notice with some you dont get the option to control volume correctly, well this is true for my settings because when i try to change volume on my laptop speakers then it doesnt work. So like i said just check which device option works best for you***

Hey Rogue, I have a little story for ya:

after i use Ushare (to stream vids to my Xbox360) all other video services (youtube, vids on the harddrive) on my computer won't display the videos . To resolve this. i use the handy <ctrl+alt+backspace> combo to refresh my system and my youtube vids work like new. My question is this: Is there any other program running (or that you have ran) that could cause a confilct of this sort (with your audio)? Is there a pattern, that you can see?

Now you're confusing me in two different threads.....i hope you're happy ;p

well thats what i would have thought but restarting has no effect on the issue. it seems completely random.
