i can't hear sound from flash movie. something with my flash plugin?

anyone seen the yaffa commercial? lol
here's a link to the flash movie:
but i just can't get the sound out of it. i know it has sound cause i played on windbleh (which had version 6.0 installed, same as my linux) and it had sound.
i know the commercial's dumb but i just want the flash player to produce sound

For the longest time I had the same issue. Then one day as I was going through some of the posts here on sound I figure out what I needed to do. Assuming you get sound elsewhere and using KDE (not sure of GNOME but I suspect there is something similar), give this a try (if you haven't already):

Press the K start menu and go to ---> Settings ---> Control Center. In Control Center pick Sound and Multimedia. Then select Sound System. One of the tabs should be Sound I/O. Select that and for the drop down for the Sound I/O Method select your sound Driver rather than Autodetect. (in my case it was Advanced Linux Sound Architecture). Save it and try again.

Hope that helps.

It could also be something else using the sound device.. ie. xmms open, or the such
