I have a problem with Kali Linux that seems a bit odd: the sound works perfectly in the Google Chrome browser but when I try to play music or video on VLC or the other player that comes with Kali Linux The sound do not work!
The sound used to be working just fine in both browser and media players.
I've tried to play music while the browsers were closed and nothing happens.
I have the same problem with all media files (mp4, mp3, wma, mkv. . .)
I have launched vlc from the terminal and there was no error message.
vlc '/root/Téléchargements/Son Lux - _Easy_ (Official Video).mp3' VLC media player 2.2.4 Weatherwax (revision 2.2.3-37-g888b7e89) [0000560055f800e8] core libvlc: Lancement de vlc avec l'interface par défaut. Utilisez « cvlc » pour démarrer VLC sans interface
And when I close VLC:
QObject::~QObject: Timers cannot be stopped from another thread.
I updated the system but I'm not sure this is why the sound won't work. because I don't recall when this problem occurred.
