Audio Playback not working


I doubt the problem is linux-specific but maybe one of you linux users can still help me :slight_smile:
I’m unable to play any audio files. I’m using supported formats and even the ThisIsBuzzAldrin won’t play. These files are in the research folder and play in external editors. So the files are fine, it’s really an issue making them play in Scrivener.
The playback scrubber won’t move whether I press play or pause. It doesn’t make a difference. The volume is on. (Although the speaker symbol in the bottom right corner makes you think it’s muted because there’s not volume bar next to the speaker symbol.) In fact, none of the buttons in the audio control bar except for the “backtrack” button even react to me clicking them.

Looking forward to help, it would really make Scrivener so much more useful for me, as I need to transcribe audio files and would simply love to be able to do that in Scrivener, where I also write.

Thanks :slight_smile:
