View Full Version : [ubuntu] No audio from Flash 10 in Firefox 3.0.13 on YouTube

August 19th, 2009, 06:02 AM
After hours and hours of struggle, I finally managed to install Flash 10 in Firefox 3.0.13 running Ubuntu 9.04. The reason I installed Flash 10 was to play videos on YouTube and other sites. When I had surfed to YouTube with Flash 9 installed, YouTube directed me to install Flash 10. Now, I am sure Flash 10 is operating on YouTube, because I right-clicked on the YouTube video screen and the message "About Flash 10" popped up. Furthermore, the Flash 10 player is listed on the Firefox/Tools/ Add-ons screen. However, even with Flash 10 installed, I still don't have audio on YouTube! Yet, I have audio when I play a music cd or listen to internet radio and also when I play the video in the /home/username/Examples directory, the one with the guy talking about the Ubuntu Forum. I hear him just fine. So, why don't I have sound when Flash 10 is playing on YouTube? By the way, I can't get any system sounds or effects to play even though my system sound files are in the right directory.

Someone keeps ignoring the fact this is a REAL problem. Same issue. Audio works everywhere but Youtube or other embedded videos. I've tried upgrading browsers, reinstalling plug-ins, checking permissions, but I am rusty enough on Linux that I haven't found the solution to the problem that IS a problem. I keep searching....

Hi, i have the same issue on FireFox 3.5.3 with Flash player version 10,0,32,18.

No audio is audible or playing from any embedded flash video in either Youtube, Vimeo, etc.

It's not a rights problem since the ~/.mozilla folder has my ownership and group ownership.

Nor did it fix anything to remove cookies and reinstall the plugins.

Try removing PulseAudio.

Thanks! That seems to have fixed the issue.

Thanks +1

Worked for me too, until I rebooted again in the morning that is.

Anybody have a permanent solution?

Nevermind, it's working again. Tried everything i could find with no success so i tried reinstalling pulseaudio and re-uninstalling it with complete removal. Three restarts later and it still works.
