Firefox sound problems 9.04
I am still having sound problems with Firefox after upgrading.
Initially had problems with video as well, but uninstalling and then re-installing Flash fixed the video. Still no audio.
Initial problem: Video won't play on some sites like Hulu and YouTube. Other MM apps like MoviePlayer and Rhythmbox are OK.
Did the following:
* Removed flashplugin-installer
* Installed flashplugin-installer (video started playing, but no sound
* Again removed flashplugin-installer
* Installed Flash from Adobe web site using the .deb package
Video plays on all sites I have tried, including Hulu, but no sound. All other MM apps I have tried are playing sound properly.
I have seen various flavors of this problem in the forums, but no resolutions specific to Firefox 3.0.9 on Ubuntu 9.04.
Sound card is built-in Intel on a relatively new Dell Inspiron 530 with Intel motherboard and Pentium Dual core.
Upgrade was performed via Update Manager. All else worked flawlessly.
Re: Firefox sound problems 9.04
While I was posting my problem, good ol' Lachinchom posted a fix that worked for me:
Hulu works; Pandora works; YouTube is OK, but I occasionally get faulty audio that is cured by shutting Firefox and starting over.
