Whonix workstation no sound

There is no sound in vlc or websites. How can i fix this?

SOLVED

On virtual machine workstation
settings → Audio → Host audio driver → Choose Alsa audio

Also maybe install
apt install alsamixergui

Okay I did a fresh install and no sound again.
Changed the audio driver in the virtualbox to oss driver
Installed alsa-oss and alsamixergui and it works now

Edit: Some times it works sometimes not. WTF? If sounds in VM working there is no sound in the host. If the host has sound there is no sound in VM???
Linux can sometimes, no often, melts my brain :slight_smile:

Also when I select alsa audio driver my guest freezes when I try to open an video.
