    Default Problems with streaming audio/video

    Hi,

    I am trouble playing any streaming audio/video from for example:

    Latest news, comment and reviews from the Guardian | guardian.co.uk

    There are two videos on that page and they just freeze after a few seconds. It's the same with another firefox plugin I use. I have installed the restricted formats packages etc listed here:

    Welcome to multimedia sub-area - openSUSE Forums

    I don't know how to troubleshoot this... any ideas?

    Ok so, it seems to actually play flash videos now... but there is no sound. The sound works on the machine, I heard it through the speakers when I booted up.

    I started firefox from a console and got the following output:

    Try removing libflashsupport (but keep flash-player) and then check those flash web sites.

    Hi, i've got the same problems: sound is everywhere except mozilla. And unfortunately removing libflash-support does not help. Don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

    To start, can you provide us some more information so we can confirm the same problem? ie ..
    • What web sites give you problems? All websites ? only a select few ? PLEASE test multiple web sites. Please provide the URL of some of the site(s) that work for you, and those that fail for you.
    • What version of openSUSE is on your PC ? also, is this version 32-bit or 64-bit ?
    • What desktop ? KDE3 ? KDE4? Gnome ? XFce ? other ?
    • What version of Flash-player are you using? Is it the Flash player from the Non-OSS repository? Is it from somewhere else?
    • What plugin are you using? Gecko-mediaplayer ? mplayerplug-in ? and what version of those?

    Hopefully the NEED to provide such information does not turn you off, but you must understand we are not sitting at your keyboard with the knowledge of all that information available to us. And unfortunately, its really difficult to provide good suggestions with a dearth of information.

    That's strange, i feel stupid, but when i started to gather all that information, namely, check different cites, the sound appeared out of the blue sky!! Maybe removing of libflashsupport helps indeed but require reboot a smth. Anyway, everything works - thanks a lot
