How do you make "/dev/dsp1" the default Audio Output Device?

Ubuntu 10.04 XFCE desktop.

The Audio Output Device is "/dev/dsp1".
When I specify this in VLC, the audio works perfectly.

But when I am looking at a web page with flash, I can only see the video.
There is no audio.

How do you make Flash use the "/dev/dsp1" Audio Output Device?
How do you make "/dev/dsp1" the default Audio Output Device for this system?

Probably via udev (my guess). This is not enough information. How is the output connected when you use different software, I mean the audio data stream must be directed to the appropriate device. How?
