Hi,
I just updated to 8.04 last night and now I do not get sound on any internet videos, what happened? Do i need to reinstall a package or something of that sort.

My other/biggest problem is my inability to change my screen resolution, any time i go to system/preferences/screen resolution I get an error reading... The X Server does not support the XRandR extension. Runtime resolution changes to the display size are not available.
I already tried running the dpkg-reconfig xorg (not exact) command and that did not fix my problems.

Can anyone please help on these 2 issues? greatly appreciated.

libflashsupport is needed for sound on Flash with PulseAudio

Yeah, I can confirm that this is indeed the solution to the "no sound in flash" problem.

This worked for me too.

Why does it not install that package automatically ??

Is this not a bug?

Thanks for the help !

This problem is based on whether you have esd, alsa or pulse installed. If you are doing a fresh install, then you will have pulse installed. If you have audio issues with alsa, make sure to have libesd-alsa0 loaded. That will take care of the same issues. Also, if your Firefox 3 starts taking a dive while you are playing, uninstall the libpulsesupport, that is what is causing it, and load libesd-alsa0. Coolio, good luck boys!

Everybody has ALSA installed, and both ESD and PulseAudio use the ALSA drivers.

PulseAudio now *replaces* ESD in Hardy, so there is no need to install libesd-alsa0; in fact it could probably cause conflicts.

The proper fix for Flash issues is being worked out here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/192888

A solution for now is to install libflashsupport to give PulseAudio support to flash, but it causes some instability (crashes in Firefox).

Interesting, then why is when I unload the libesd-alsa0, I get no sound at all, even when I select the pulse audio sound and have the libflashsupport loaded. I checked aptitude and it is loaded. I guess I prefer using the aforementioned lib file because I have no issues using that file.
