after installing unity desktop today on trusty with gnome allready installed smplayer wont play audio,clementine wont play mp3 either,smplayer plays video.vlc and video player both work ok. I have uninstalled smplayer and clementine and reinstalled still no sound any clues folks
I've installed VLC and smplayer, and audio plays fine but video is slowed down and jerky. This is happening with all forms of video (avi, mkv) and in all video players. Is there something additional I need to install? I figured vlc and smplayer would install the required files.

SMPlayer can also play, search and download Youtube™ videos. It uses the award-winning MPlayer as playback engine which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats.
SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn't need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you'll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs.
One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play.
Over time, for some reason, I am unable to play videos in smplayer, totem or vlc if I start the application from the Gnome 3 desktop icon. I use smplayer exclusively but when I lose video with that, I have also lost it in totem and vlc. As I lose video, the first symptom is failure to display if the size is set to 100% and videos must be viewed at 75% and then 50%.
