Hey all.

Well, I can't seem to get sound in Flashplayer for Google Chrome, Firefox, or Opera. I've tried numerous fixes, including installing (and running) Flash-Aid, reinstalling flash, etc. (I have tried both 32-bit flash and 64-bit flash.) The video runs but the sound doesn't.

Here's the current information on my Flashplayer:

Code:
Shockwave Flash

ÂÂÂÂFile: /var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
ÂÂÂÂVersion: 
ÂÂÂÂShockwave Flash 10.1 r102

MIME Type ÂÂÂÂDescription ÂÂÂÂSuffixes ÂÂÂÂEnabled
application/x-shockwave-flash ÂÂÂÂShockwave Flash ÂÂÂÂswf ÂÂÂÂYes
application/futuresplash ÂÂÂÂFutureSplash Player ÂÂÂÂspl ÂÂÂÂYes

I'm running a 64-bit system. I lurked the forums for fixes, but nothing has worked so far.

Thanks in advance!

The sound in flash stopped working when I was tweaking stuff to get MKVs and MP4s playable. (Sad to say, I can't remember what it was I did to make it work...)

Now after trying to fix it....all this happened. Now my sound is thoroughly broken.

Does anyone have a copy of their asound.conf I can use? One that will allow mkvs, mp4s, etc to work while also having flashplayer functional? It's a 64 bit system.

Are you using flash for a specific reason or have you tried out HTML5 with a recent version of a major browser (e.g FF4)?

Flash has generally always had a tendency to be troublesome and inferior to Windows/OSX performance-wise on Linux, especially on 64-bit, and if you aren't using flash for a specific reason (i.e you want to browse websites that require flash) you can simply sidestep your problems with HTML5.

This is not really a solution for him though. I'm using chrome in a 64 bit Ubuntu install with sound and no issues. Flash is built into Chrome and it just works. It is a bit slower on flash games than it is in Windows on the same machine and I did have an issue with Flash video not switching to full screen after upgrading to 10.10, but I found a simple fix for that somewhere... I haven't tried playing mkv files though, but I bet VLC would play them just fine. I would suggest uninstalling and re-installing chrome and/or flash and then try your mkv/mp4 through VLC.
