configuring gstreamer properly

Recommended Posts

I have installed gstreamer on my acer 4720 laptop which is running fedora8.

 

But I see the volume control applet with a red cross and on clicking it says :

 

The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control.

This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed,

or that you don't have a sound card configured.

 

You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the

speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu.

 

I have both alsa and oss installed on my system. Alsa didnot work with my ICH8 sound chip so I used oss.

Read somewhere that gstreamer doesn't support oss. How to solve the problem.

I am unable to adjust the volume of the sound when I use the oss plugin with xmms.

thanks in advance

well that was a problem with my sound driver OSS not being supported by gstreamer.

I got to know that from the OSS forum and have updated a library in the gstreamer dir and it is working since then. (the lib file is libgstossaudio.so)

 

thanks again
