it happened suddenly, maybe because of my audio driver, some times i can hear audio but some times i can not or i do not, so maybe this could be a clue, i have reported as well a bug of my audio driver bug, but this bugs that i have reported and we are talking about happened to me frecuently before and now it has happened again, so i do not know if it because of codecs or toem, or maybe as i said, it is because of my alsa audio driver, please fix this bugs as well because i can not hear any sound in my computer..

i have the same problem. it started after upgrading to 9.10 beta. it used to work perfectly. i also tried a clean install and still has the same problem. i have no sound at all even though everything appears to work fine.

Same here. Running an up-to-date Karmic 32bits at 10Nov2009.

If I try to play an MP3 with totem I just get this window showing an error:

"Failed to connect stream: Too large"

which stream?

gianni (gbarberi) wrote :

same for me, i think it's relates to audio, i have other audio problems in other apps too

Same problem i can hear sound when i go to videos online like youtube but i cant play audio audio without getting that message on my audio player or when i try to watch videos so i did another test and i cant record sounds either if i use the pre-installed sound recorder ill hit the record button it wont move then when i hit the play button i get the same error ive tried to go into system>preferences>sound and change things in there the only thing i dont understand is that it says my mic is working fine but i cant record and ive changed every possible thing in sounds but still nothing works the worst part is everything was working great before i updated.

Just tried something else i just tried to play a game in ubuntu and sound works fine in both my game and in a emulator but still dosent work with just plain audio files.

Thanks in advance

This happens to me too, occasionally (sometimes videos / mp3 play fine, some others I get this message). When this bug happens, the same streams play well in vlc!
I'm running 9.10 32bit on an AMD Athlon 64 x2 @ 5200+

I too have this problem intermittently--after reboot it seems to clear up. This issue is not an annoyance to me, so I will not subscribe to this thread. If you would like for me provide more information on my system, please message directly. Running:

How this bug came up for me.

I was using 2 programs
1) Totem paying a shoutcast play list
2) StreamRipStar ripping shoutcast streams.

When i pressed from StreamRipStar the "Hear Stream" which played in Totem sound stopped and could not hear anything.

No youtube, no mp3 no shoutcast... nothing.

How this problem stopped.

I terminate StreamRipStar and i had again normal sound with no Totem error.

I hope to help u!

Does any one face this issue with Lucid?

Yes. I have the same problem since i have updated the system. Now, I have Lucid and I don't know the solution to this problem. Please help me.

Felix Krohn (felix-kro) wrote :

seems to be related to pulseaudio. the following is enough to get sound working again:

pulseaudio --kill
pulseaudio --start

I have following message in .xsession-errors, i believe it's output from exaile:

I notice this bug the first time. But's really annoying because if this bug appears, the PC won't send any signal to the speakers.

Here is what the terminal says, when i try to view a file in Totem:

(totem:5787): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_tree_view_scroll_to_cell: assertion `tree_view->priv->tree != NULL' failed
** Message: Error: Failed to connect stream: Zu groß
