The only time I had that particular problem I found that it was cured by 
changing the backend (SystemSettings > Multimedia) from xine to gstreamer.  
After a later update I was able to change it back, so I assume a bug got 

Other than that, open alsamixer in konsole, and check that all channels are 
properly set.  If you are using pulseaudio you need to specifically look at 
the sound card - there's a prompt for it, and I think F6 is the keybinding.
