Java sound with Beagleboard

I tried to play some wav files with Java (javax.sound.sampled) on my Beagleboard. It worked without Exceptions but I didn't hear the sound. The hardware was not the problem...

By default, sound output was set to muted :(

I solved the problem with

opkg install alsa-utils
//optional for tests
opkg install mplayer

Use alsamixer for the configuration:



  • Set Headset volumne
  • Toggle mute for HeadsetL Mixer AudioL1 and HeadsetR Mixer Audio R1 (Press m key)
  • Check volume for DAC2 Analog


mplayer sound.wav
