    No sound on mplayer


    Hey

    When I try to open a video-file in mplayer, there are no sound. (have tried flv and mp4 files) But it plays mp3-files fine.
    Other media programs like vlc have no problem playing the same videoes with sound.

    I have checked if mute was on and if the volume was turnd up high, but that wasn't the problem.
    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Well, maybe it just needed a good old fashion reboot or something, glad you got working.
