I'm running Linux Mint 8 (built on ubuntu Karmic) and I'm having some trouble with boxee's audio.
I'm running ALSA, and I've killed all other ALSA processes before starting boxee. I always get the ambient noises from boxee in the start of the program, but when I play videos, regardless of what they are, I get nothing.
I also attempted to play music, and nothing happened. I set the sound properties to every device available and tried again with each one. Some gave me "audio could not initialize" errors, others gave no errors and no sound.
I can get sound from all my other programs, firefox, pidgin, etc. albeit one at a time (annoying ASLA...)
Any help would be appreciated.
