Thread: Bug: Flash - video, but no audio

    Default Bug: Flash - video, but no audio

    Fresh network install of OpenSuSE 11.2 KDE (default)

    Enabled all community repositories and installed following packages (with Install Software, excluding all 'debug' and 'devel', if not in the dependency tree, and avoiding all, that conflicted with any other packages):

    * picasa
    * opera
    * Vuze
    * MPlayer (and its non-gnome specific front-ends, e.g. SMPlayer and KMPlayer)
    * mplayerplug-in
    * xmms (and all packages that start with it, except all 'debug' and 'devel')
    * dvdrip
    * vlc
    * vlc-mozillaplugin
    * acroread
    * gnucash
    * scribus
    * scribus-templates
    * audacity
    * rhythmbox
    * gtkpod
    * xine-ui
    * libxine1-codecs
    * w32codec-all
    * libdvdcss
    * kompozer
    * kdewebdev4
    * free-ttf-fonts
    * gstreamer-0_10 (all packages that start with it, except all 'debug' and 'devel', and those with conflicts)
    * java-1_6_0-sun-plugin
    * GeoIP (for aMule)
    * libGeoIP1 (again, for aMule)
    * lsb (for Helix Player, thet I haven't installed yet)
    * libqt4-devel (an exception, for Skype)
    * virtualbox-ose (with an appropriate kernel module)
    * aMule

    Install was smooth, and I rebooted

    Next I launched the KDE codecs installation meta package from oSC (http://opensuse-community.org/codecs-kde.ymp), and agreed to resolving some conflicts, as follows:

    After this, installed the Nvidia drivers, proposed by YaST Software Management, and rebooted again.

    Wonderful drivers, BTW ;-)

    Now it was time to get my favorites: SeaMonkey and Songbird.

    Here are the conflicts lists for each of 'em, with my answers:

    Now I'm in Firefox, on YouTube, there is video, but no audio. I pumped the volume to max, rebooted, even deleted the '.adobe' and '.macromedia' folders in my home directory- to refresh the plug-in, so to say - no change. System has sound, but flash doesn't, on all websites, in all browsers (FX, Seamonkey, Konqueror, Opera).

    Did I break some audio framework that flash relies on, by installing packages listed previously? Sounds odd.

    What do you think am I to do next?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you say you "pumped the volume to max", did you move up all your volume settings? ie master, speaker (if any) and also PCM ? A number of users have reported PCM dynamically moves to inaudible levels just when the youtube/flash video starts to play and the settings MUST be moved back up.

    What worries me here is that you said: " enabled all community repos"

    Try doing this:

    I had this problem in my work pc. The solution, i installed adobe package using yast, then i saw the place of plugin in yast and i created a new link in firefox plugin folder and this worked for me.

    cd /usr/lib64/firefox/plugins
    ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so .

    The sound play, either with amarok playing
