I have a laptop which has a blown sound card. Because of this I have some cheap $15 usb speakers that I've been using. Previously the laptop had windows xp and ran like a snail on valium. The speakers worked fine on XP.
Move forward to my install of Crunchbang aka #!
I've gotten the system to use the speakers as default (I think) with a .asoundrc file in my ~/ dir.
Card 2 device 0 is how VLC is able to play flv files through the USB speakers. For the life of me I cannot get any browser to play any video I find through the USB speakers. It simply goes into its own dedication to the silent film era.
Any help would be appreciated.
