I've had the following issue across multiple music players and multiple distro's. Currently I am experiencing it in Rhythmbox on Arch Linux.
Whenever I play music and then pause a track I am unable to resume it, it simply seems to "stay paused". However when I manually skip ahead in a track it works just fine. Similarly my music seems to stop playing slightly before the end of a trakc and then just "stops", I have to manually skip to the next track.
My sound is coming through a port in my monitor, which receives the sound via the HDMI cable. However I've also tried the audio jack coming straight from the motherboard with the same results.
Any ideas why this might be happening?
Edit: additional info as requested:

I opened Rhythmbox, pressed play, pressed pause, pressed play again (didn't work) then closed Rhythmbox.

I've tried both
ALC888-VD Analog and
It does nothing at all when I press play, nothing happens UI wise or audio wise. Long or short pause does not make any difference.
I am using
pulseaudio-alsa (Arch Linux).
