Smile No Sound in Epiphany Browser in GNOME

Using Debian Sid.I installed Epiphany Browser and am very happy with it.Only think i cant resolve is that epiphany cant play sounds in flash videos or even normal wmv live there any config file where i can fix?In Iceweasel,we can install alsa-oss package and edit /etc/iceweasel/iceweaselrc as default=aoss.but in epiphany how to do?Also I am using GNOME-2.18 and in sound preferences menu.i've enabled ESD.Audio works fine allover the system except there any tweak to set.I know that proprietory flash uses /dev/dsp alsa please friends any fix.

Mine has always just worked, so I don't really have an answer. Epiphany does pick up it's preferences from Gnome, though, so that's where you have to look. My Gnome settings are basically all "auto-detect."

Smile Solved.

for me,i resolved it.when ESD is enabled as with iceweasel,epiphany too needs to be invoked as "aoss epiphany-browser".I made a it all works.thanks to ubuntu forums community though i uses Debian Sid thanks ya all.
With ESD enabled(menu system>preferences>sound>devices>evrything to esd,in sounds tab>enable esd ticked,play system sounds enabled),I removed libesd0 and installed libesd-alsa0.posted a bug report about this sound problem to debian BTS also.


epiphany, flash-plugin, nosound
