flashplugin and pulseaudio

Postby enedene » Tue Sep 14, 2010 4:26 am

Can you play music from flash player and from a local file with mplayer or anything else that uses pulseaudio?
As a test try running some mp3 and then see if you have sound in youtube videos while mp3 is playing.
If you go to sound preferences you'll see that all the applications except firefox use pulseaudio. There is obliviously some kind of conflict.
Also when I tried to reinstall the flashplugin-nonfree I got an error where I couldn't install it anymore, I've found this thread on that subject on Debian forums:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=27314
Then I managed to install the flushplugin-mozilla plugin but the problem persists.

I found THISpost that may resolve your issue. It begins
There is a widely known issue which is that MPD (Music player Daemon) and flash are conflicting which ends up that one of them won't have sound (the one which was started earlier). So if you want to run MPD and flash at the same time this Howto is just for you. =)

I was not aware that Linux Mint had this issue, I thought it was specific for LMDE. I've never had it on Ubuntu and Mint is based on Ubuntu, but LMDE is not.
Anyway, I solved the problem like I did on my Arch Linux main desktop, I removed the pulse audio completely and am using Alsa instead.
But it's good to know that there is a simple solution if someone else has this problem. Thank you.

First off do not install ubuntu packages. Second that package is flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound in Debian! ... :wink:

That 'seems' to have done the job for me! Needs to get into a sticky of 'things to do after fresh install' to bring the OS upto speed until it's fixed by update..

Functions halfway, you hear clicks to play both flash and other

I hear pops and uneven sound when playing from two sources (flash and audio file for example), someone else is happening?.

Thank you for this! Ever since I switched to LMDE my sound has always been 'flaky', in that any heavy CPU usage would always fragment and break up the sound output. Streaming online, if my mouse cursor so much as moved over an Ad, the sound would cut briefly. Heck - even the startup sound in LMDE would never play smoothly. This was all fine under Mint 9, so I has always assumed that the problem was in the Debian Multimedia repo: the one which VLC users complain about.

Now though, sound output has been restored back to what it was. If, for any reason, I cannot stream smoothe video; the sound is still unimpeeded. A great improvement.

uhm at the risk of seeming a bit spammy and annoying

I can only repeat that this needs stickying - every couple of days this thread needs linking because someone new starts another "sound not working" thread without having realized it's flash/pulse -related.
