fresh avidemux install makes no sound
« on: March 26, 2016, 12:02:17 AM »
Hello,

I just installed avidemux 2.5.4 on Precise Puppy Linux 5.7.1.but it makes no sound.
My first project was adding an mp3 audio file to a video, and it worked when I had saved the video and watched it with gnome-mplayer. When I played the video in avidemux there was no sound.
In "Edit->Preferences->Audio", I can choose "Local Playback downmixing" between "No downmixing", "stereo", "pro logic", and "pro logic II", but no matter what I choose, the only audio device avidemux shows me is "dummy".
What can I do?

Thank you

Hans

You don't have an audio device selected:
In ubuntu you have these choices, if the relevant libraries are installed
Audiodevice:
- dummy (none)
- Esd
- AlsaDmix
- AlsaHw0
- Jack
- Oss
- PulseAudioS <- ubuntu prefered
- AlsaDefault

Check what audio hardware is installed in your Precise Puppy Linux
Upgrade 2.5.4 to 2.5.6 if package is available for your distribution
If you find package avidemux 2.6.# install this for newer codecs like h264 (current would be 2.6.12)

Thank you Jan Gruuthuse,

I found and installed a package of Avidemux 2.6.4 (that's what my package manager says, the "about" function gives me no version number).
Now I have some audio devices to choose, and "Alsa default" works as far as video and audio run synchronously when I play the video in avidemux. I can also drag the cursor to a certain position and then cut and save the video, and the saved version is ok.

However, whenever a video plays and I click the "stop" button, avidemux will freeze and no longer react to anything, I can only kill the process. This only happens when some audio device is selected. When I set audio device to "dummy", I can stop and restart the video with no problems.
I also cannot choose any "audio output" in the left pane. I don't know yet if I really need this feature but something seems to be wrong here.

Do you have any idea what I could do?

thank you,

Hans

PS. is there a "show my own posts" function in this forum? It's sometimes not easy to find them...

It's a bug when using alsa on debian styled distribution

I have the same problem with a fresh install of ADM 2.6.12 Qt4 on Ubuntu 14.04.4.
The Preferences - Audio - AudioDevice only shows Dummy and Oss.
Avidemux audio coding and system sound/speakers seem to be working fine. The processed mp4 works well on VLC player.
Any hint/help?
Thanks

Thank you both for your quick replies.

@mean Yes, altough I don't know linux very much. I used the bash script included in the «avidemux_2.6.12.tar.gz» downloaded from FossHub and following guidance included in «Simple article: Installing Avidemux 2.6.x for Linux».

@jan The output of three commands is:

You're on 14.04.4 LTS Wily, I'm still on 14.04.4 LTS Vivid, hope that's not the difference.

You're not on a virtual Ubuntu 14.04.4 (no access to some hardware?)

You did install the relevant debs after your build? If on Qt5, then replace the Qt4 debs by equivalent for Qt5.

I'm not certain about this. Some may not even be used at all by avidemux. I have these additional installed too, over the years:

I'm not on a virtual Ubuntu 14.04.4. It is also a fresh install on HD using the startup disk creator with the latest iso download.

I generated debs and installed core, plugins, Qt4 and settings (all of your list but the two related to CLI).

My output to your command shows only one lib, but VLC is working fine. Perhaps somebody could tell us if some of the others are used by current ADM.

My best guess is libasound2-dev (shared library for ALSA applications -- development files)
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev

I would not hurt if you installed audio and video codecs to.
- liba52-0.7.4-dev (AC3)
- libdca-dev (DTS)
- libdts-dev
- libmad0-dev (MPEG audio decoder)
- libopencore-amrnb-dev (Adaptive Multi Rate speech codec)
- libopencore-amrwb-dev (Development files for audio sample rate conversion)
- libsamplerate0-dev (Development files for audio sample rate conversion)
- libtwolame-dev (MPEG Audio Layer 2 encoder (development files))
- libvorbis-dev (The Vorbis General Audio Compression Codec)
- libvpx-dev (VP8 video codec)
- libxvidcore-dev (Open source MPEG-4 video codec (development))

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install liba52-0.7.4-dev libdca-dev libdts-dev libmad0-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libsamplerate0-dev libtwolame-dev libvorbis-dev libvpx-dev libxvidcore-dev
subtitles related:
- libass-dev (development files for libass)
- libfreetype6-dev (FreeType 2 font engine, development files)
- libfribidi-dev (Development files for FreeBidi library) (Hebrew and/or Arabic languages)
- libxft-dev (FreeType-based font drawing library for X (development files)

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libass-dev libfreetype6-dev libfribidi-dev libxft-dev
ps. you need to rebuild avidemux after installing any of above

Thank you, Jan. After installing all your suggestions (and enabling Qt5 in order to be up to date), I've got some ALSA options under Preferences→Audio. Although there are fewer than yours, I now can hear the audio playing from ADM with ALSAHw0.

You could end up reinstalling the computer completely and loosing al what is on it.
If this is your production computer: you make your living with it: STOP READING

-------------
Possibly has something to do with audio chip on motherboard and the supported audio codec (either AC97 codec or HD Audio codec)
Check if you computer or motherboard manufacturer provide the linux drivers.

Find the audio device
Code: [Select]
lspci -nn | grep -i audio
Quote
Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition

Check if codec is there
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Quote
Codec: Realtek ALC892

In above case (Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset), it involved building Realtek Linux audio System Driver Installation (v5.18)
http://airbornesurfer.com/2015/04/how-to-install-realtek-hd-audio-driver-in-linux/

There is no standard solution, google is your best friend.
