    Default No sound in Youtube(Flash)

    Hi!
    I have a problem with sound (OpenSUSE 11.3 64bits KDE 4.6.2 "Release 3").

    Sound is working in Amarok, VLC and System-warnings, but not in any web-browsers that play youtube-videos. I have Flash 10.2.159.1 that is the latest version available from Adobe.
    I read somewhere that there was some problem with sound on Youtube, but i thought this was fixed.

    Need help!

    Hi!

    Did you try with an older version of Flash? I've read the new one has caused some troubles - and if you don't have 11.4, it may be possible.

    However, maybe you find this old thread helpful:

    I also forget to reboot it after updating. Great that you solved it!

    it is very seldom that a reboot is required after an update...it should
    tell you when it is required...otherwise, not..

    Not solved yet :-(

    Now i see the problem. If i use Amarok to listen to Internet radio, sound in web-browsers get deactivated and i can't activate sound without reboot.

    So i boot up and access youtube in Firefox og Opera it works. Then i start Amarok and play music in it and then all sound i web-browsers disappears.
    Need to reboot to get sound back again.

    What is this? A bug?

    Try to install Gmerlin alsamixer, then open your terminal write alsamixer and increase the sound bars.

    well, first, i guess you don't actually have to reboot...you _may_ but i
    guess you don't--try this, instead of rebooting: right click on desktop,
    pick "Leave", next popup pick "Logout", you will land on a log in
    screen, log in as yourself, and see if youtube works again...i think it
    will (without a reboot)...this is not Windows and reboots are not nearly
    so often needed, and should almost _never_ be expected to 'fix'
    anything....the reason Windows needed to reboot so often (i'm told) was
    because it was so easy for the registry to get 'confused'


    > What is this? A bug?



    if it is a bug i do not see it here...just now i played a youtube piece,
    then started an mp3 in Amarok....it worked...then started a youtube
    piece and both were paying, and both could be heard..

    i _guess_ the difference in success and failure has something to do with
    my system vs yours... i'm running 11.3 32 and an older KDE, but i think
    the probably REAL difference is that you are using PulseAudio and i
    won't let that pig on my machine because it messes up so much...when i
    found out it wouldn't place nice with Skype on 10.3 i deleted it there,
    and then when i installed 11.3 i removed it from the list of items to be
    installed...

    note: i am not making a recommendation to you that you change anything
    in your system...i am NOT a sound/multimedia guru...and, many of those
    recommend PulseAudio..

    So and I am not multimedia guru. But because I have faced the problem again in 11.3, with this way I have solved. Of course do not confuse that all multimedia problems solve with this way(This comment is not for DenverD is for new members).

    This all is part of the reason why Pulseaudio was introduced in 11.4 in KDE, I guess.

    And instead of a reboot the command:
    Code:
    su -c 'rcalsasound restart'
    should "fix" the sound issues that you are facing as well. You'll have to restart things like KMix etc, though. (However this is probably still not the way it ought to work.)
