    Flash, PulseAudio, Media Keys

    At times the Flash plugin in my webs browser starts to make videos stutter. Upon google-ing, I found that running
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.pulse* ; killall pulseaudio
    makes the Flash playback as per normal. However, after running these commands, the media keys no longer actually control the system volume, but they do make notifications (i.e. with Notify OSD) as if they do.

    Is there a way to:
    • get the media keys to start working again, without rebooting?
    • fix this "stuttering-Flash videos" problem without killing pulseaudio like that?
    • a way to see what command is being run when hitting the media keys (or any keyboard shortcut really)? (This would be helpful to know in order to establish user-defined shortcuts to the system volume control with the pop-up notifications.)
    • find out what the command to run is to change the system volume including the notification with Notify OSD?

    Try simply:

    Code:
    pulseaudio -k
    and see if that works without messing up the media keys.

    Since it does not work after using killall, as mentioned, I am guessing that might work after a reboot. Thanks!

    Anyone else got an idea about the other things, or this?
