Sound stops working in the middle of Flash Vid - Needs Reboot
This problem is ridiculous and I've had it for a long fricken time without any solution. So far it's happened with Firefox and Chrome.. I'll be watching a flash vid from youtube or wimp.com and the sound will suddenly cut out in the middle while the video continues playing.. the kick in the balls is that the sound dies for the entire system, not just the browser. I've killed and restarted pulse, I've done a force-restart with Alsa and it still doesn't come back.. I've pgrep 'ed chrome and firefox and shut everything down and still nothing. The only way to get sound back is to reboot the entire system.
How is it that this bug can override a restart of pulse and alsa? Is it messing with ACPI or something? Some days I'll get hours of youtube and other days I have to restart after 5 minutes.
Any ideas on what to do?
