Getting your Fedora system set up for sound and video can take some doing, but once it’s done you can play most audio and video content that is available today. This chapter takes you through the steps of setting up and troubleshooting your sound card, and explains how to find software to play music through that card.
Live video from TV cards and Webcams is covered in the sections on Tvtime and GnomeMeeting, respectively. Finally, I cover the xine player for playing a variety of video formats and the GNOME Volume Manager for downloading images from a digital camera. If your computer has a CD burner, use the descriptions in this chapter to create your own music CDs and CD labels. You can also burn complete CD or DVD ISO images, using the K3b window.
