Default Vlc and no sound...

hi there i have some files in .mkv and format and would like to to view them using vlc...the problem is that
there is only the sound in the background...by that i mean that i can
only hear for example the music that plays in the background and not
the people talking in the movie...subtitles and video are all displayed
correctly...i just cannot hear the people talking...when i watch the
files in kaffeine and kmplayer i have no problem at all...what might be the problem
with vlc?? thanks in advance...

My inclination is that it is a vlc specific bug....check this page to see if you have it compiled with the use flag listed there: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-gentoo.html


If you have it compiled with all of those use flags, then I'd email vlc at video-lan.org: http://www.videolan.org/support/lists.html

You compiled with the following USE variables "by adding the line

media-video/vlc dvd ffmpeg mpeg mad
wxwindows aac dts a52 ogg flac theora oggvorbis matroska freetype
bidi xv svga gnutls stream vlm httpd cdda vcd cdio live


to the file "/etc/portage/package.use". This will give you a
fully functioning VLC. Be very careful if you decide to disable some of
these USE flags. You can loose more functionality than you might expect."
Right?

If yes, then I'm out of ideas except to contact vlc devs.
