Problems with sound, when playing flash files. Flash plug-in installed.

I have installed Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25 plug-in. Everything is working ok, except sound. I get no sound or an afoul noise, when playing flash files in Opera or Mozilla. But system sound is normally configured i can listen mp3, internat radio with XMMS, etc. Can you help me? What is the problem? By the way i've reinstalled the plug-in in several ways (rpm, shell script).

basically, my take on it is... flash support for linux sucks. starting from version 6, problems with audio has been a known issue with them and it's still not fixed. choppy playback and futzy audio. that's what i've experienced with flash on linux from version 6 to the latest version 7. i've gone back to using flash player 5 and said screw the sites that want me to have flash player 6 or above.

Thumbs up

Hey! That's explains all. My friend said that he managed to install flash on Linus, and the sound was working. Now, i think that he was dialing with 5th version...
Thanks for advice!
