Package: gstreamer0.10-alsa
Version: 0.10.23-2
Severity: important


I'm unable to get sound output via gstreamer in its default configuration.

Like in #494382 I have a HDA Intel onboard sound card. It is connected to
my amplifier via a SPDIF cable.

gst-launch-0.10 audiotestsrc ! audioconvert ! alsasink
gst-launch-0.10 audiotestsrc ! audioconvert ! alsasink device=default

produce sound output. However /proc/asound/Intel/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params show the
device as opened:

format: S32_LE
subformat: STD
channels: 2
rate: 48000 (48000/1)
period_size: 1024
buffer_size: 8192

If I substitute the default device with hw:0 I get sound output.

The default device is working with arts, mplayer and aplay.
