I also don't get sound. I have sound in my normal Wine prefix, but not the Netflix one.
Specifically, when I open up winecfg and swap to the audio tab, I see:
It seems to be due to running a 32-bit Wine inside a 64-bit Ubuntu, see:Code:ALSA lib conf.c:3314:(snd_config_hooks_call) Cannot open shared library libasound_module_conf_pulse.so ALSA lib pcm.c:2217:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c:612:(snd_pcm_dsnoop_open) unable to open slave
And in gentoo:
HOWEVER, there's an easy easy fix.
seemed to do the trick.Code:sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins:i386
I got stuck in the netflix app today. Mouse is working in the app, except can not x out of the program or do the upper left corner with gnome3.
So I could not close the app.
When it was stuck like this I tried alt-F2, this exposed the basic firefox menu. Then under file select exit and it closed.

Could you please create a new bug for the 64-bit failure and put a dependency
on this bug?

I've not noticed this particular issue, but when I do (rarely) notice audio
issues with Wine I've noticed that they can be resolved by executing
"pulseaudio -k". You might give that a try.
