Mint 'Gloria', No sound in flash for Opera/Firefox

I'm using Mint 'Gloria', with the Opera browser and Firefox side-installed, and I can't get Opera or Firefox to output any sound from flash videos like Youtube. I tried with the standard .so, and then the alternative plug in for the .swf extension in Opera, but it doesn't work, and Firefox doesn't work, but I do have video.

I don't know if it would help, but 'uname -r' returns:

This is the last step I need to take before I can actually use Linux daily.

I have sound in Rhythmbox music player.

I use USB headphones for my sound, but I've configured them to work. Could someone help me? I'm not very experienced with linux, but I understand a large amount of how computers work, I'm just not too savvy with linux yet.

Can you describe how you've installed the
the standard .so, and then the alternative plug in for the .swf extension
and can you remove them?
So far as I know, mint is based on ubuntu, hence to install flash plugin, just do the following at a command line/terminal:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
This should work with all non-IE browsers, that is, Safari, Firefox, Opera.
