no sound on Youtube


I am on Slackware 13 (current) 32bit, and have been unable to get sound on youtube. I have downloaded and installed the libflashplayer.so (10) but with no avail. All other sounds work.
Any idea?
Thanks in advance

But do you see video? Is the flash plugin working except without sound?

Yes, I can view the videos, only sound is the problem.

Have you checked the settings on your mixer to make sure they're correct? Do you hear sound correctly on other apps, I mean, does sound work ok in general? Is the flash volume level correct?

Yes, other sound playing works perfectly (mp3,rm, other KDE sound and video applications work)

Quite some questions about this issue in this forum. What I found on the web and what helped me with iceweasel (Firefox) and the flashplugin-nonfree (the Adobe plugin though):

rm ~/.adobe ~/.macromedia

Reboot. Check your sound with Flash on youtube or whereever.

It seems that the Adobe files in the home directory, once they exist (and they do after eacht Flash action), prevent proper sound with Flash. Don't ask me why. Including a shutdown script that removes these settings would be persistent.

Thanks. Unfortunately it does not seem to work. I have reinstalled a fresh slackware 13 (32bit) on my system. I was hoping that it would solve that problem. (It took me time to come back because I had some problems with my network installation, hence had not internet and could not test on youtube)

In fact it has been long that I am struggling with sound on Youtube with Slackware (since version 12.0). I tried to find a solution by installing Debian so that to have sound on such online videos. It worked with Debian (using a patched plugin). But as Debian is not of my taste, I am back trying to get it work on Slackware. I wonder whether this is a general problem or only a few have it, and why?
By the way I have another installation with Slackware 64 where I installed flash for 64bits and it works perfectly. But I need it to work on my 32bit installation so that I can have my 64bit machine free for myself.
Any other tips?

Thanks in advance
Ibrahim

I have a similar problem with Youtube sound. Video works fine. Sound works fine for all of the users on my system for all sources except for Youtube. Only one user can hear the correct sound on Youtube. The other two users hear the first syllable of the sound stuttering rapidly and infinitely. Very frustrating.
