We are going to need a bit more information.  Which driver were you
using fglrx or the open source driver?  What app were you using to
play the video?  What API (Xv, X11, VDAPU, GL, etc.).  Is the driver
installed and working properly?  How are you trying to play the audio?
 Via hdmi, via a 1/8 headphone jack, something else?  At the minimum,
we'd need your xorg log, dmesg output, and glxinfo output.  From your
second email, it sounds like something is seriously screwed up on your
system if gears is segfaulting.  If you previously had fglrx
installed, you will need to re-install several of your disto packages
because the closed source drivers (both nvidiia and fglrx) overwrite
several gl and glx libs.
