If you go to System/Preferences/Sound Are you using ALSA for about everything? if not, try that.

um no the only thing with alsa is the audio conferencing - sound capture and the default mixer tracks - device says HDA intel (alsamixer) the rest is on autodetect

try putting them on ALSA and see what happens... the others like OSS seem to not like to share output. Also there is a quirk I've found with firefox that sometimes audio output will stop with a message like xmms server busy or something.. when I killed firefox (all firefoxs, had to go to the system_monitor to get em all) it started working again.

I just worked through several sound problems in ubuntu. After I updated my sound drivers mysteriously disappeared. Are your drivers still installed, is the problem only consistent in firefox? I've had problems with firefox in the past trying to use festival. If firefox was open I couldn't use festival at all.

I would check lspci, find your sound card and the proper drivers and then check lsmod to see if the modules are loaded.

I remember audio and youtube stuff started working better after I installed Flash from source.

So you have the source code of Adobe Flash? Woah... nobody else does. :roll:

No... I probably phrased that wrong.. I remember downloading a flashsomethingsomething.tar.gz and using the ./configure and make command line stuff to get it to work.

edit:

Thinking there was something with pulseaudio and flash player 9 issue. If it helps, I'm using Shockwave Flash 9.0 .r124 now. and don't have the audio issues as often as I used to have.

Try running alsaconf

I've had ALSA get fucked before and lost sound in flash videos. After running alsaconf everything was fine and dandy, so it might be worth a shot.

I know this thread is old but wanted to say something about pulse audio it's not ready for everyday use not sure why Ubuntu and Fedora actually use it .
