youtube in firefox has sound but not in google chrome


I can watch videos on youtube with sound using firefox on centos 6. However the sound
disappear when I use google chrome (how annoying !). I have this issue for some time and I googled and checked various setting, I just cannot solve the problem. It is getting interesting. I am capable to produce all results if you can guide me through to solve this problem.

Thanks!

Open google chrome and run
Code:
chrome://plugins/
Now search for adobe flash player plugin, something like this
Code:
Adobe Flash Player (2 files) - Version: 11.7.700.203
Shockwave Flash 11.7 r700
Name:	Shockwave Flash
Description:	Shockwave Flash 11.7 r700
Version:
If it is not there, install it.
If it is there, it should be enabled.
If it is enabled, check the box Always allowed,

I installed the same OS on different computers.

I found that if the Chrome version is Version 24.0.1312.52 beta
then the sound is not working.

If Chrome version is Version 23.0.1271.97 then the sound is working.

Beats me!

An update:

I guess when I first installed google-chrome, I installed
some of them using "yum install google-chrome" that pulls down
the beta version, and the beta version breaks the youtube sound.

If I unstall google-chrome first and then reinstall google-chrome-stable I think I
will hit

Requires: libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)(64bit)

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I have already lost google-chrome on one machine, and I don't think I will
risk losing another one before I know to fix

Problem solved by switching to chromium:



I did

Quote:

[root@2nd-centos61-dell ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/chromium-el6.repo
[chromium-el6]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Chromium EL6
baseurl=http://people.centos.org/hughesjr/chromium/6/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-Testing-6
priority=50

yum install chromium

/opt/chromium/chrome-wrapper


/opt/chromium/chrome: symbol lookup error: /opt/chromium/chrome: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest

yum install libX11

/opt/chromium/chrome-wrapper

The sound is now working fine.
