'Twas brillig, and Robert Gabriel at 09/12/10 20:20 did gyre and gimble:

Phonon is just a library. It needs a backend to actually do the audio
decoding. Typical backends include GStreamer, Xine and VLC (only these
three support PulseAudio and even then Xine is rubbish and not recommended).

In the screenshot you previously posted you'll notice a "Backend" tab...
try clicking on it and then having a look.

This is turning into something that is really not relevant to the PA
mailing list. If you are able, please come on to IRC and join
#pulseaudio on Freenode. I'm coling there and I can likely help you
interactively for the next few hours.
