View Full Version : [ubuntu] Firefox and VLC sound problem

August 30th, 2008, 08:08 PM
Hi there,
The sound is working fine in VLC and is also working in Firefox but if I've started Firefox first, played a youtube video and then try to play a song in VLC i can't hear anything.
The same things happens when I start VLC first and then try to play a youtube video.
pidgin can make sounds while I'm using VLC or Firefox so i don't understand.
Please help if anyone knows, what is happening.

You might also like to try the flash 10rc which is now working very well, and certainly better on my machine than flash 9 ever did. If you do try it you will not need to install libflashsupport, and I believe it may even conflict with flash 10rc, I'm not totally sure about that last point, however.
