Can I possibly be alone here?
Can I possibly be alone here?
I had no sound in flash (games, chrome browser, etc) after installing kubuntu 10.04.
But this problem was solved when I installed pulse audio (apt-get install padevchooser)
I also had no audio for flash videos after installing Kubuntu 10.04 yesterday, however the fix for me was to open kmix and raise the PCM volume which was defaulted to off.
Hope this helps,

Installing flash-aid and checking the PCM slider fixed it for me. (On noticing PCM at 0, I probably didn't need flash-aid).Also having multiple plugins is not a good idea.
Install FLASH-AID extension for Firefox. It will remove conflicting plugins and install the proper flash version according to your browser architecture.
If you don't use Firefox or prefer to fix the problem from command-line, then see the Flash Optimization section of Firefox optimization and troubleshooting thread.
Also check of the PCM volume slider is all the way up.
The PCM volume is in the mixer. In Kubuntu, click on the speaker icon (system tray), and click mixer. (It should be similar in Ubuntu) What was confusing was that the mixer did not appear at first, just a single volume slider. I had to click on "mixer" again to see the full mixer.
(As an added bonus, the mixer allows me to adjust the volume of this laptop's two headphone jacks independently of eachother.)
Ran into one variation when I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10...
Noticed in Firefox, Tools -> Add-ons -> [Plugins] kept listing:
Shockwave Flash 9.0
While Software Center and Update Manager (and Synaptic Package Manager) all read:
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r85 (10.1.85.3-1maverick)
libflashplayer.so flashplayer.xpt <----- Ah hah...the old Flash 9 components
:/usr/lib/firefox/plugins$ ls -latr
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2010-09-21 18:40 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 2010-09-21 18:48 flashplugin-alternative.so -> /etc/alternatives/firefox-flashplugin <--- The newer Flash 10...
Back to Firefox - now the Plugins lists Shockwave Flash 10.1 r85
And sound works fine again. (worked everywhere outside of Flash/Web).
This is broken for me too, tried everything above and no dice. It has worked in the past, but it isn't now.
Same problem here: sound on everything (including embeded .wmv) except Flash.
The thing is: before I had sound, in Flash and elsewhere but really low volume. When I put everything max it was barely audible.
Then I updated ALSA to the latest version using the script and instructions on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...10#post6589810
After that sound volume was as it should be, but Flash didn't have any sound anymore.
In Sound Preferences on the Applications tab nothing shows up when I'm playing a Flash movie.
Any hints on how to solve this?
I tried the Flash purge and reinstall.
I use chromium, but checked in Firefox if there weren't two version of Flash plugin installed and there weren't.
I tried about everything I could find here on the forum, but nothing works.
