    Mplayer


    Mplayer loads fine, everything works but one thing: the sound.


    When loaded I get this:
    Code:
    Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.
    All other sound works prefectly, it is just with mplayer that it fails.

    Why is this?

    Are you using OSS or ALSA?

    Are you having any troubles with other applications that require sound?
