Linux and Youtube


Hey everyone, Af73rSh0ck here. I'm a fresh user to the linux community and just downloaded Fedora 9 a few nights ago. My friend said I should try this forum site for any questions I might have. So, that said, how come Youtube videos work, but not the audio? I tried turning up my speakers, adjusting the volume, and updating my system. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

hey Aftershock,

In Fedora 9, you might want to go to the menu:
System > Preferences > Hardware > Sound

In there, under tab "Devices" (which should be active right away):
Use "ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture" on every playback.

Restart your computer (easiest way) and next time your Flash should work just fine.

That's how I solved mine anyway, keep me updated ^^

The first thing we need to know is if the audio works in other places (i.e. playing mp3, cds, regular non-flash movies, etc. etc.).

Oh crap, I completely forgot. If you're using Fedora 9 (default), then you'd be using pulseaudio server as the sound server.

Well, in that case, you must install a library called "libflashsupport". To do that, as root, issue the following command line:

yum install libflashsupport

After that, sound should be working ^^

Just a personal opinion, I don't really like PulseAudio at the moment, I think it still has a lot of problems, I'd still rather stick with Alsa. But... that's entirely your choice.

Good luck, mate!
