Hi everyone, I am recently having a weird issue I can't dissect.
So, I have a great deal of music collection on my local storage and am dependent on it. I am using Clementine as my default music player. Things went perfectly well but once when I tried booting and playing my music, there's no sound!! The weird thing is that the seekbar can still be moved and the spectogram/visualization shows the current part like the music's playing (while it's actually not).
So yeah, I thought the issue is in the app. So I tried other apps. Amarok, Elisa, Cantata, etc. You name it. The error is still there. I can't play any music at all. The music is "playing" but no sound coming up from my laptop.
Curious, I tried opening a video with VLC. Surprisingly, normal sound coming up! The audio from the video comes up normally like there's no issue. Furthermore, when I tried playing an audio .mp3 file with my VLC, the sound comes up normally too!
So I deduce the problem is located within one of the dependencies used by the music apps, some codec or stuff. The thing is I dunno what package is that. I already googled arch wikis and forums but none in my observation experience the same thing.
Furthermore, if that problem comes from any AUR packages, it seems unlikely. I did try installing Clementine qt5 but that was just a test and I quickly replaced it with the stable community version.
So, can anyone help? I don't know how to produce any log or something for diagnosis so feel free to jump in.
