Hey guys, I'm new to the forums and this is actually my very first post on the Linux Mint forum. I joined not just because of this fix I figured out but because I like to help contribute to Linux and everything else Linux related. Shall we begin?
Youtube or any other flash video on the web just goes way too fast, its like fast fowarding the video and the sound is really bad.
1. Completely uninstall any flash plugins:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge lightspark
sudo apt-get purge swfdec-mozilla
sudo apt-get purge mozilla-plugin-gnash
sudo apt-get purge adobe-flashplugin
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer
rm -f /home/**/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*so
rm -rf /home/**/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/system32/Macromed/Flash
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libflashplayer.so
2. Completely uninstall all pulseaudio:
Linux Mint/Ubuntu Menu > Software Manager > search: pulseaudio > Remove ALL pulseaudio that you can
3. Install Flash (In this tutorial, I will be using gnash):
Linux Mint/Ubuntu Menu > Package Manager > search: gnash > Install mozilla-plugin-gnash (It should install all you need)
After installing everything that "mozilla-plugin-gnash" package needed, then restart your Firefox browser and test it on a Flash video.
If all goes well in this tutorial, it should fix the fast fowarding in the flash videos and the audio as well. Good Luck, everyone!
