View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound doesn't work simultaneously

October 21st, 2008, 10:18 PM
Hi, so when I listen to my music on Amarok, everything is fine but when I go on YouTube, the video plays but the sound doesn't. When I pause my song on Amarok and reload the youtube video, the video and sound will work. When I'm done youtubing, and resume my music in Amarok, it plays but no sound is coming out of my speakers. I then have to close both firefox and amarok (soemtimes even forcequit), and then open amarok, and the sound works again. This is pretty inconvenient as everytime I want to watch youtube, I have to pause my amarok before I open firefox in order to make the sound work. It isn't just for youtube, it's for the browser in general. I though this was normal for Ubuntu ever since I installed it but I just talked to my friend today and it seems he doesn't have that problem. Can anyone help? Thanks

sudo apt-get install libflashsupport if firefox is open, restart it.
