Rythmbox & VLC are starting muted for every song

When i try to play a song using rythmbox & VLC Media player it is muted. MPV does not show this behaviour. When i unmuted it, it switches back to a muted state after every song.

Problem resolved itself with the newest update. I really don’t know what was wrong and how it was fixed. So when you encounter the same problem in the future, maybe consider to start a new thread. A temporaily fix was for me to install mpv (you can find more information about mpv here):

sudo dnf install mpv

copy the files you want to hear in an empty folder.

mpv “folderpath”


  1. select all media files in “files” (the default file explorer)
  2. right click
  3. Open with other application
  4. mpv
