    mplayer without sound


    Hi, everyone.

    In my Fedora8 machine,
    If I open the firefox and play some videos in youtube.

    Then, I open the mplayer, but no sound.
    The error log is as following.
    AO: [pulse] Init failed: Connection refused
    Failed to initialize audio driver 'pulse'
    *** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused
    [AO_ALSA] Playback open error: Connection refused

    How to enable sound while playing multiple video ?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Regards,

    thank you, tpl.
    I think you means "snd_mixer_oss" here.
    But it still doesn't work for me.
