I haven't done an extensive search but one distro I've found that has surprised me with respect to including a fair amount of codecs and tools out of the box is PCLinuxOS. I wrote up a review of PCLinuxOS in this U&L Q&A titled: What live distribution is well-suited for presentations? With respect to installing codecs from default repositories, ...

On Debian it should just be a case of changing the Pulse Audio profile. For me it as as simple as: pactl set-card-profile 0 output:hdmi-stereo The number of the card and the name of the profile you need may differ though. You can see the available options by doing: pactl list cards

Put this in your /etc/asound.conf pcm.softvolPhonon { type softvol slave.pcm "default:CARD=0" control { name "HDMI" card 0 } min_dB -51.0 max_dB 0.0 resolution 100 hint { show on description "hdmi with extra Volume Control" } } You need to replace card 0 with the hdmi audio output in you system.

On OpenBSD audio playback/muxing is handled by the sndiod(1) daemon. Changing the default playback devices is confusing because the list of valid devices does not appear to be documented. Add the following to /etc/rc.conf.local sndiod_flags="-f sun:1" Then run sudo /etc/rc.d/sndiod restart

Uncommenting load-module module-alsa-sink load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:1,0 in /etc/pulse/default.pa did the trick. Edit: However, after uncommenting the lines mentioned above, I ran into all sorts of problems, for example vlc started crashing. I now removed the complete folder /etc/pulse/ and now everything seems to work fine, including sound ...

It turns out the sound stack developers have anticipated me and written a workaround specifically for situations like mine - I just wasn't able to find it at first. Aoss does exactly the desired thing: it preloads libaoss.so and then runs another command line, which will then see a /dev/dsp and be able to ioctl/read/write it. So instead of, e.g. ...

on the advice of my brother, I copied $HOME/.pulse/ and $HOME/.pulse-cookie from jcomeau to petalumarentals, chowning them to petalumarentals, and both SoX play and alsamixer now work the same under both accounts. there must be a better way to set this up, but it works as is.

According to a topic on the gentoo.org forums, "The MID card doesn't work at all (alsamixer says: "This sound device does not have any controls."). So it's useless, yet it is made the default card for some reason. " The fix for it, as referenced on this post in the topic, is to add the following to the kernel commandline in your bootloader config: ...

What's the meaning of MID, PCH, HDMI? MID is a compound acronym with an unenlightening expansion: it is the Message Signalled Interrupt Capability ID register in the C220 series chipset your machine uses. (How did they manage to boil that unwieldy term down to MID, you ask? MSI is a well-established acronym in its own right, so this is the "MSI ID" ...

Not sure what MID and PCH stand for, so I can't answer that part. HDMI is High-Definition Multimedia Interface. HDMI can carry audio, and it'd appear your machine has (or could have) 3 HDMI ports. The moss-green plug is the analog audio, the last one listed.

A user's ~/.asoundrc file is a way to override the default configuration (in /usr/share/alsa/) or the machine configuration (in /etc/asound.conf). Normally, it is not necessary to change this configuration. And if it is, you have to write it by hand. The official documentation: Configuration files Runtime arguments in configuration files Runtime ...

The Arch Wiki tells you how to setup an ALSA source as a monitor. Basically, use pactl list to find the name of your source, something that includes analog-stereo.monitor. Then add to /etc/asound.conf or ~/.asoundrc the following lines: pcm.pulse_monitor { type pulse device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor } ctl.pulse_monitor { ...
