Mint 'Gloria', No sound in flash for Opera/Firefox


I'm using Mint 'Gloria', with the Opera browser and Firefox side-installed, and I can't get Opera or Firefox to output any sound from flash videos like Youtube. I tried with the standard .so, and then the alternative plug in for the .swf extension in Opera, but it doesn't work, and Firefox doesn't work, but I do have video.

I don't know if it would help, but 'uname -r' returns:
2.6.28-11-generic

This is the last step I need to take before I can actually use Linux daily.

I have sound in Rhythmbox music player.

I use USB headphones for my sound, but I've configured them to work. Could someone help me? I'm not very experienced with linux, but I understand a large amount of how computers work, I'm just not too savvy with linux yet.

Can you describe how you've installed the

and can you remove them?
So far as I know, mint is based on ubuntu, hence to install flash plugin, just do the following at a command line/terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
This should work with all non-IE browsers, that is, Safari, Firefox, Opera.
