No Sound Via Flash

I go to sites that stream audio via flash plugin through Firefox. One particular site is

I am unable to hear any songs or play them from the media player built into that site. At home using the same plugin of Flash and browser, it works fine so I don't know what the problem is. I also did a fresh install of the OS with Firefox and still can't play.

Can someone please assist me in this issue...

Try setting the permissions to your dspX (dsp0, dsp1, dsp2...whatever you have) to 777.
chmod 777 /dev/dspX
This has to be done as root.
