I have a laptop with speakers. I recently tried to watch a flash video on the computer and wasn't getting any sound. Later on I tried to listen to online radio and still wasn't getting any sound. I restarted the computer and it didn't help but when I went into the sound settings and properties I clicked the "test" for each speaker and I'm getting noise through them (the test in gstreamer-properties also works). But ALL other programs will not play any sound to the speakers.

Same issue as: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1697117 but that wasn't resolved either
