Adobe Flash no sound

Hello I have just upgraded from Hardy Heron to the Interpid Ibex. At first everything was working fine (in mplayer, FF Flash and etc), I could hear the sound. But after when I installed Skype and did a few tweakings, my Skype works fine and now I can only watch Youtube video without sound.

I had removed and re-installed my pulseaudio previously.
I had made sure that I have not muted my sound. (I still can play the music using VLC)

I tried this but not working too,
# Flash also looks for /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

# Flash expects /tmp/.esd/socket to exist.
sudo mkdir -p /tmp/.esd/
sudo touch /tmp/.esd/socket
I have installed libflashsupport package and not working also.

When I started my FF from the terminal I have these errors

ALSA lib pcm_pulse.c:625: (pulse_prepare) PulseAudio: Unable to create stream: Invalid argument
$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 6: Si3054 Modem [Si3054 Modem]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
When I ran this command as stated by this thread

$ pkill pulseaudio; sleep 2; pulseaudio -vv
I got these excerpt which point out the errors

W: ltdl-bind-now.c: Failed to find original dlopen loader.
E: pid.c: Daemon already running.
E: main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.


W: ltdl-bind-now.c: Failed to find original dlopen loader.
W: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_NICE, (31, 31)) failed: Operation not permitted
W: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_RTPRIO, (9, 9)) failed: Operation not permitted
What else should I do to make it work ? Thank you very much.

Hello, I don't know somehow it's working now. Thanks to all people who had tried to think up the possible solutions.
