Hi brav22, that's strange because the exact same thing has happened here.
I have not changed anything, but the other day flash just stopped playing sound.
Everything else is working just like it used to.

What distro are you using.

I'm currently using Suse 9.2.

Has anyone else had any similar problems with flash?

I just tried mine as root but I still wasn't getting any sound.

Well, I had not updated in a few weeks so I went though YOU (Yast Online Update)
and updated everything I could. I now have sound in flash again. I can't really say what
the original problem was or what I updated that made the difference(I didn't update
flash or firefox or any sound specific software).
