FireFox FLash Sound Problems


Title says it all. When I got to load a site that has flash and sound with it. The sound, well makes sounds. I know my sound is working correctly etc. I thought it might be a error/setting in my FireFox. Anyways thanks in advanced.

PS. Distribution: SUSE 10.0 KDE

This is a classic example of how not to ask a question. I can highly recommend reading How To Ask Questions The Smart Way. Hope that helps.

I am sorry if your to dumb to under stand my Question. Here let me rephrase <friendly LQer>

When I load a page with Flash that has sound effects, I can't hear the sound. I know my sounds is configured correctly.

That better?

Oh oh, I know the answer! But you were a prick to someone who was just trying to help so... nothing for you.

This is a dumb question, it has been asked heaps and I've answered it plenty of times myself and I've seen it answered even more. Search.

Vampir3, I think what cs-cam and JunctaJuvant may have meant to say is that you did not provide enough information to help solve your problem.

Simply saying that you having problems with your sound and flash doesn't give us enough to go on.

For example, it would be helpful to know where this site is, first off, to see if it's reproducable. If it's not reproducable, it helps us know that there may be something wrong on your end, and not an overall issue.

Also, describe your sound problem. You say there is a problem, but you have sound. It seems like there is no problem. Do you mean that the sound is delayed or ahead of the animation? How much of an offset is there.

Finally, we're all trying to help each other. The bad attitutes and swearing don't help things and often adds to the problem, then solve. If you don't have something positive and helpful to contribute, it may be best to not write anything at all.

With that in mind, I've also had problems with flash. I'm not sure with the issue is...personally, I avoid flash sites like the plague. Without more information, it's hard to say what the problem is. My problem fixed itself with a Flash reinstallation.

Could you provide some more details to your problem?

I can't watch anymore, it hurts.

Code:
aoss firefox
Start Firefox like that, it uses OSS for audio output which is incompatible with ALSA - the current linux sound library. aoss is a compatibility layer which takes OSS streams and passes them to ALSA in basic terms. Nice to see your searched for a solution.

Well think about it. You have in fact NOT asked a question at all. Not once. Except in your rude reply: "That better?"
Note how it ends with a question mark. You will find that most written questions here have that in common. Hope that helps and enjoy that classic article I posted, which explains precisely why nobody will spoon feed you information around here. I would suggest reading it at least twice. If you have trouble reading English, there are translations. Good luck with it!

Ok... lets look at this objectively.

The original post: "When I got to load a site that has flash and sound with it. The sound, well makes sounds." What Juncta was getting at (though perhaps he was a little abrupt in pointing it out) is that this could mean a million different things and we have no idea what the real problem is.

Calling people names and using bad language isn't going to get you far here.

Anyway, I don't see this thread progressing in a positive way so I'm closing it. If the suggestion by cs-cam doesn't fix your problem feel free to post again in a new thread but please try and provide more details about what is actually not working.
