Gentoo: Integrating KDE aRts, Flash Player and Firefox-source for sync'd audio and video

A new la entry has been added:

Gentoo: Integrating KDE aRts, Flash Player and Firefox-source for sync'd audio and video

The most frustrating experience for myself in Firefox was getting the Adobe Flash Player to play nice with KDE. First I wasn't able to hear any sound, then I couldn't get the audio to sync with the video; it was a nightmare. There are two issues going on here.

The first issue is getting Firefox to pipe the sound through aRts. This can be fixed by using artsdsp to wrap around the Firefox binary that runs when you bring up the web browser.

artsdsp firefox
