It works with UMPlayer without any problem, but not in Firefox Sad. Any practical suggestions to resolve that problem will be greatly appreciated.

It may be as simple as opening alsamixer and unmuting/increasing pcm volume

could be you need to reinstall or update flash

could be that you added an extension that causes a conflict

could be that your board has made the card something other than a pcm device or a mapping issue in which case you may have to send a command line option to the kernal ie: snd-hda-intel.index=1,0

This is an update to what I posted back in May:

I have started using VLocity64 (7.0.1), and at first I had trouble getting Alsa to install at startup. I solved that by disabling my motherboard's built-in sound system (it turned out that VLocity64 doesn't like it for whatever reason) and I installed a third-party sound card instead (Soundblaster Live 24-bit) which works as described back in May, and yes, I read through the post by overthere, which brings up the following question - Is there a way to configure Alsa, and if so, how do I go about it?

And what would be the Vector Linux equivalent of the information found in the following link - http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ALSA#HTML5_does_not_play_in_firefox_browser ?
