flash player no sound if another audio application running?

Hi I just installed OpenSUSE 11 and I think it’s wonderful that flash works out of the box. My problem with it though is that if another application that uses sound is open, flash has no audio. I run into this problem when pausing Audacious to watch a quick youtube clip, and the clip will have no audio. I have tried setting audacious to pulse (from alsa) output but the problem persists. Since my sound server and flash options are still out-of-box defaults, is there a quick fix for this?
