no Audio while playing movie
« on: February 11, 2008, 10:35:09 am »

Why is it that if you start xine-player (playing a movie), you won't be able to get sound anywhere else in KDE.

But if you start a sound source first in KDE (lets say a youtube video) then switch back to LinuxMCE and play a movie. Both sounds from Youtube and Xine-Player will come through?

I checked the Xine-Player device in my core/hybrid (web-admin), there is a field for ALSA-OUTPUT.

Is it supposed to work this way? or do I have something setup-wrong.
The only way I can get a other sounds working while a movie playing is by starting that other sound source first, before playing the movie.

I have on board audio (RealtekĀ® ALC861/883/888)
No driver shows up in the Audio Tab of the LInux MCE Launch Manager.

Code: [Select]
00:05.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

Any thought on this?
