Exclamation Flash audio player stops working in slackware 13.37


I have azap installed the latest version of flash player and from the first time you install it worked well,
The problem is that at any moment cease to hear the flash player in firefox, sometimes sound, sometimes not
if I put in the terminal and playing a video on youtube

Code:
root@localhost:~#firefox
I get the following:

Code:
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c: 1018: (snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
thanks for your help

The rule of thumb in such situation is reinstall/upgrade.

1.Make sure you have the latest FF version. It's 8.0, otherwise get it:

Code:
# slackpkg update


# slackpkg upgrade-all
2. Adobe patches its Flash like crazy. Get the latest Adobe Flash Player version 11.1.102.55 tarball

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

untar it and then put this file "libflashplayer.so" into ".mozilla/firefox/vh153zah.default/plugins/" folder

Restart FF.

Take care.

No. Put libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

Well, it's a matter of security taste.

I won't put such a vulnerable piece of, ahem, Swiss cheese, into a root-privileged folder.

There are enough unpatched zero-day Flash exploits for the rest of our lives.

Disable all FF add-ons/extentions/plugins except Flash and see the difference.

If you are still unable to figure out what's going on, try Chrome. There is a long discussion on another thread about Chrome vs FF, check it out for details.

Take care.

It makes zero difference from a security perspective. The plugin is going to run with the privileges of the user running the browser, no matter what directory you put it in. You aren't any more or less secure just because you kept the file in your home directory.

brianL is correct. Put it in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins then it can be used by all browsers on your system. They pretty much all look in that directory, e.g. if you had Opera installed it would also find the plugin if it was in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/.

How have you installed it? And, according to Adobe's instruction, have you deleted the old plugin(s)? That could be the key.

If you use the SlackBuild to install it, you'll find libflashplayer.so goes in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. How much more proof do you need to show that is the right place for it?

Not the place for this type of post. Your post has nothing to contribute to the Original Post. Possibly open a new thread in <General> : This forum is for non-technical general discussion which can include both Linux and non-Linux topics. Have fun!

Nice resource. I didn't know I could view some videos on Youtube only with html5. I am running Firefox Nightly (9.0.x), I have disabled Flash and I can still watch about 50% of videos I'm interested in. I wish we could rid of Flash as soon as possible.

Hey, man, where are you hiding?
Don't you see that I got my face slapped while trying to assist you?

I gave you some ideas about disabling possibly conflicting FF add-ons and trying Chrome, which you missed either ignored.

Come on, solve you problem and make me believe that we live in the perfect world.
