No Sound in Youtube (Flash) with Wheezy (Flashplugin / Iceweasel) [SOLVED]


If you (re)-install Debian Stable, you may have a trouble to get the sound with using Alsa (or using Pulseaudio,... anyhow, if you are a linux-lamer, who simply cannot edit your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf...).

No sound in iceweasel on your favorite youtube?

If not done yet, let's get the deb and install it (edit your sources.list or not):
Install flashplug from the contrib.

Here the trick to get sound:

create a tiny file:
leafpad ~/.asoundrc
with the following content

pcm.pulse {
type pulse

ctl.pulse {
type pulse

pcm.!default {
type pulse

ctl.!default {
type pulse

Here it works ! Sound in Iceweasel with Flash !!
