XMMS wont-play-music problem

just installed XMMS, and the XMMS-WMA plugin. I can load the files into the playlist, but when I hit play nothing happens. It seems like it's starting but then immediately rejecting the file.

I have volume up and can hear sounds with the soundcard detection utility.

Anybody else have this problem and mind sharing the solution?

FC3, Intel based motherboard/sound set.

try playing around with the output sound plugin choices and their config...it worked for me ;-)

I tried the Alsa, Arts, Disk writer, Esound, and OSS plugins, none of them worked.

Which one are you using and what's the setting? The Alsa driver had other settings within it, but didn't seem to make a difference either.(default pcm, hw0:0, hw0:4)

I sound like a broken record on these forums, but the only player I could get to play CD's was xine. No idea why, but none of the others worked. I know xmms is supposed to be good, but you might try the xine route.

the disk witer plugin is if you want to convert a mp3, ogg, flac, or other compressed audio file to a wave file prior to burning a cd. which is very usefull if your system can't handle it on the fly.
try running xmms from a terminal to see if it outputs any errors. also, did you install the mp3 plugin?

Ok, two things. First, I'm trying to play WMA files which are already ripped. No MP3, no CD.

Second, I think starting XMMS from the terminal was a good Idea.(from troubleshooting perspective)

When I start a track with the arts driver selected, I get this error message......

---------------------Message: artsxmms_open(): Unable to initialize aRts: can't connect to aRts soundserver------------------------------------------

When I select the alsa plugin then start a track, I get this one repeatedly

-----------------------------ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:549snd_pcm_hw_start) SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_START failed: Broken pipe

** WARNING **: alsa_free(): snd_pcm_start() failed: Broken pipe----------------------------

Ok, so does that mean I've got a driver error? How can I fix it?

The other three driver/plugins don't display anything in the terminal when a track is started.

hmmmm, are you able to get any sound from your system? or is this strictly an xmms issue?

It seems to be strictly XMMS.

I'm gonna try running up2date and see if that does anything.

You could try installing another version of xmms-wma. I had the same problem in Ubuntu(not sure if I had the same error message though).

Other versions are here.
