|0008002||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2022-10-13 10:15||2022-10-24 07:02|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2022.4|
|Summary||0008002: Media playback not working|
|Description||Video media in all browsers doesn't play. And the media on my device plays, but without sound. I tried different solutions from Linux forums, but nothing seems to fix it.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Install the update released on 12 October 2022.|
2. Try opening media on youtube
How are you running Kali Linux? In a virtual machine? Which one? Or installed baremetal?
Just to be sure, can you type the following command in a terminal, and paste the result here:
dpkg -l | grep pulse
I'm running it directly on my device. Not virtually!
Here are the results of the command:
dpkg -l | grep pulse ii gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio:amd64 1.20.3-1 amd64 GStreamer plugin for PulseAudio (transitional package) ii libcanberra-pulse:amd64 0.30-10 amd64 PulseAudio backend for libcanberra ii libpulse-mainloop-glib0:amd64 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 PulseAudio client libraries (glib support) ii libpulse0:amd64 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 PulseAudio client libraries ii libpulse0:i386 16.1+dfsg1-2 i386 PulseAudio client libraries ii libpulsedsp:amd64 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 PulseAudio OSS pre-load library ii pulseaudio 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 PulseAudio sound server ii pulseaudio-module-bluetooth 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 Bluetooth module for PulseAudio sound server ii pulseaudio-utils 16.1+dfsg1-2 amd64 Command line tools for the PulseAudio sound server ii xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin:amd64 0.4.5-1 amd64 Xfce4 panel plugin to control pulseaudio
The latest major release of pulseaudio landed in Kali a week ago (version 16.1+dfsg1-2), so it's possible that it broke the sound for you. Now, as to how to solve it... I really don't know. I can't really help with that.
If it's not a big deal for you, you can just wait, cross your fingers and hope that the next point release will fix it. Otherwise, if you have some time, you can roll up your sleeves, look into the logs (probably run journalctl, check the status of systemd services related to sound), find what's the relevant error message somewhere, and maybe report it to the upstream bugtracker ? Also try to run the programs that you want to play sound with from a terminal: if you're lucky it will output some error message.
You said you « tried different solutions from Linux forum », you can keep trying. Just try to narrow down your researches to pulseaudio 16, or to discussions that are less than 6 months old.
Maybe check the Debian bugtracker for pulseaudio: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?dist=unstable;ordering=raw;package=pulseaudio, limit yourself to bug numbers above 1,000,000.
I'll try everything I can and see!
Thanks for the help!!!
