No sound on the WWW (solved)
« on: December 28, 2012, 02:23:38 pm »

Hi there, recently installed velocity on my new computer, however I have no sound via any web browser at a sound enabled site.... for example flash plays (extensively tested youtube) but no sound, Likewise the BBC iPlayer.   If I download something from you tube and play it locally we have sound.   I can play CDs (with sound) and also DVDs with sound.  My audi chip is a HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic.  Any clues?

I used the latest one in the 64bit repository... no joy

Checking on the Adobe site I have flash 11.2.202.258 installed, which is their latest version

I know, I know.. But gotta ask anyway. You checked the appropriate channels in alsamixer?

Now that is an interesting thing, I have multiple options and  I have turned up all full and selected all channels.

Yeah, besides reinstalling the flash-plugin, and checking volume levels via a mixer (maybe the PCM level is important, I'm not sure), I don't know what to suggest.  Perhaps checking to see if alsa-oss is installed on your machine will help.  Perhaps running "alsaconf" as root will work, assuming that this command still exists (I think it's in the "alsa-utils" package).

No joy on any of those - its not as if I don't have sound, just on on flash or other systems via the www.

Hmmm. Grasping at straws here. Is port 1935 blocked? Flash uses that to communicate with the client.
