From my experience this problem occurs when using the 32-bit version of flash on a 64-bit distro. I had this problem too when I switched to slackware64 but ever since I've been using the 64-bit version of flash everything's been running smoothly.

Latest flash player, latest firefox. This isnt a Ubuntu question, but just so you know, I installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 on my friends computer and it was doing the same thing. Really weird.

I have the same problem in zenwalk (slack based). I found this article:
http://wdawe.com/index.php/adobe-bre...cam-and?blog=1
That partially fixed my problem. the webcams microphone still doesn't get picked up in flash...
the web site I'm trying to use is www.tokbox.com
I did load fedora and everything worked but fedora would lock my computer up at random so I took it off...

Thanks! Really helpfull. Like the website said, its a bug that Adobe doesnt want to be solved. Ah well. For being so cool at using Linux, there are ups and downs. Never the less, I will stick with it. Thanks again! (=

Cheers,
