Installed Flash Player on debian and now sound isn't working.


I have decided to install Flash on one of my Debian distros which I don't use very much.
I upgraded the distro (apt-get upgrade) so it has debian 8.
I then installed Flash from the debian repository (apt-get install flash-player).
But now the sound doesn't work when I use Flash.

I have a 'non-free' Radeon soundcard and have installed the non-free drivers for it.
However, although sound was working without Flash, it has suddenly gone off after installing Flash.
Does anyone know how to sort this out, please? Thanks in advance.

Does the sound work with other programs?

I've opened vlc player and the sound isn't working. Also, I get no sound on Youtube.
So it seems I have no sound on all applications.

Recently I had that issue on Debian 7 GNOME. For any reason the "alsamixer" level set set to 0. So, start alasamixer and increase the output? (a guess if it is what happens to me, too).

I opened alsamixer and on F6 (Select sound card), it was set to 'default'.
So I changed it to '0' (HDA ATI SB) and '1' (HDA ATI HDMI) while playing Youtube. But this hasn't played any sound.
It's currently set at '1'.

I also opened Pulseaudio and the 'Playback' tab is showing that it's outputting sound when a video is running. But I can't hear the sound.

The shell I'm using is xfce (as opposed to gnome).

Surely some mistake?
https://packages.debian.org/search?k...le&section=all
Code:
# apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer

Post the output of:
Code:
aplay -l
cat /proc/asound/cards

Hi, HOAS. Yes, you're right. The correct code for installing Flash on the Debian root terminal is:
Code:
# apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
However, I did not use the command:
Code:
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
Do you think I should?

The output for 'aplay -l' is:
Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 1: ALC892 Digital [ALC892 Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
The output for 'cat /proc/asound/cards' is:
Code:
0 [SB             ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
                      HDA ATI SB at 0xfe024000 irq 16
 1 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
                      HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfdefc000 irq 19
Thank you for your post.

Yes, but I don't think this is related to your sound issues.

All I can suggest is using pavucontrol (I think xfce4-mixer is a simplified version of this) to check the outputs are correct and un-muted.

Your default device is set correctly so it must be a source/sink issue.

Unfortunately, I don't use pulseaudio (pure ALSA FTW!) so I can't really help you directly.

Hopefully somebody else can.

I've tinkered with Pavucontrol a little but with little sucess.
Thanks for the help though, HOAS!

Post Trying to install flash player for debian iceweasel as plugin

Hello all:

I've been following this topic and practiced the recommendations that were given. For some reason I need to learn, I have received a different result on my terminal as shown next:

Quote:
hexaf3rrum@debian:~$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package flashplugin-nonfree is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'flashplugin-nonfree' has no installation candidate
Debian 8.1 desktop cinnamon

Your thoughts will be appreciated,

Thanks

Post Installed flashplugin successfully

Hello all:

I figured out how to install the flashplugin on Debian 8.1, this is what I did learn:
- Utilized the Synaptic Package Manager
- Added the contrib non-free repository, (New Deb) indicated the server address, the distribution name and indicated the section contrib non-free
- Searched the flashplugin
- Marked the flashplugin available for install
- Execute and done

That may very well well *install* FlashPlayer (I don't use Synaptic) but to *update* it, this must be used:
Code:
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
FlashPlayer should be updated as regularly as possible.
