Hi Ezy,

a try...

Please install the following package:

Code:
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
Add your useraccount to the group "pulse-access" and "pulse-rt"

Please note that you have to log out and in again to take the changes effect - afterwards look what happens when you try to start VLC from the gnome menu. Additionally paste the output of:

Code:
cat /etc/alsa/pulse-default.conf
and

Code:
yum list installed | grep wx
Best regards,

Olli

PS: I've the same package installed on my system and it's working without problems.

Post alsa-plugins-pulseaudio already installed

Hi Olli
I checked, alsa-plugins-pulseaudio is already installed...please see the output of
Code:
[Ezy@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/alsa/pulse-default.conf
# PulseAudio plugin configuration

# Let's create a virtual device "pulse" for mixer and PCM

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
}

ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
}

# Let's make it the default!

pcm.!default {
    type pulse
}

ctl.!default {
    type pulse
}
and

Code:
[Ezy@localhost ~]$ yum list installed | grep wx
compat-wxGTK26.i386                      2.6.4-0.8              installed       
wxGTK.i386                               2.8.4-6.fc8            installed       
wxGTK-gl.i386                            2.8.4-6.fc8            installed       
wxPython.i386                            2.8.4.0-2.fc8          installed
please let me know if you want me to do anything else....

I think that pulse audio is only responsible for audio but my VLC does not even start.....& audio is fine with Real player & other media related softwares...
