Hi. I dont wkno how this happened, but capplets installed by itself 
gstreamer-alsa instead of gstreamer-oss. Just uninstalled *-alsa and 
installed *-oss and it now runs fine. Ive also *-esd installed if that 
is somehow important.
Im sorry to made you work in this stupid bug. It smy fault.
Regards.
