Hi all,

I have configured pulseaudio and it works great when I play music by mpd, but for in instance Spotify and Youtube scenes from the net I don't get any sound.

I did set the pulseaudio flag in make.conf and when I start Spotify it also tells me that the audio drivers uses pulseaudio:
Code:

12:51:55.804 I [audio_driver_linux.cpp:17       ] Using PulseAudio


It should because it was built with the flag.
Code:

[ebuild   R   *] media-sound/spotify-0.9.1.55  USE="gnome pulseaudio -pax_kernel" 0 kB

The output of "ps aux | grep pulse" when I run mpd is the same as when I run spotify:
Code:

ps aux|grep pulse
mpd        296  0.1  0.0 496488  6712 ?        Sl   11:49   0:21 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog
mpd        337  0.0  0.0  86828  2692 ?        S    11:49   0:00 /usr/libexec/pulse/gconf-helper
white-tiger    458  0.0  0.0 370364  5996 ?        Sl   11:49   0:03 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start
white-tiger    459  0.0  0.0  86800  2692 ?        S    11:49   0:00 /usr/libexec/pulse/gconf-helper
white-tiger   1647  0.0  0.0   8968   664 pts/0    S+   14:59   0:00 grep --colour=auto pulse


So since it works with mpd I surely don't understand why it is not working in Spotify.
