I also discovered that many multimedia applications do not seem to be able
to play music directly from the CD.  Once I ripped the music to my HDD,
they worked fine, so I believed it to be a deficiency of those
applications.  However, I happened to try *decibel* for playing CDs
directly, and it works nicely.. I may have had to adjust the input and or
output devices within the settings, but that is all.  I have not compared
this one functional multimedia application to the others to discover why it
works.  Ordinarily I use Clementine (clementine-player) for streaming audio
or playing music files.
