I would start by completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

I upgraded to 32 bit jaunty and flash did not work, because it refused to install thru synaptic. Synaptic would say it was installed, but it was not.

So I installed the package using terminal.
and it works

cykotiktek - use the first post in this thread to install java and flash 64 bit. Should work without any fuss. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=772490
use the scripts to install

i reinstalled the beta, but still no sound from any flash app.

any ideas?

halfsane - are you 64 bit or 32 ? If 64 bit did you try to install flash before? If you did, remove all programs involved with flashplayer and then use the scripts. I don't know about 32 bit as I am 64 and have been since installing Ubuntu way back.
