Description Bill Nottingham 2008-04-08 22:24:33 EDT
Description of problem:

For example, bothe scoreboard and the linked gamecast at
mlb.com don't work correctly.

None of the flash entries on the front page of uefa.com work.

youtube does not work (movies are just a black screen, no sound,
even with the proper plugins.)

I'm hard-pressed to find a site where it works at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

After some work, video can be made to work in youtube, but audio is still broken.

Comment 7 Benjamin Otte 2008-04-10 16:50:16 EDT
This bug has been a communication problem. The PA backend is still considered
experimental, but was enabled because the ALSA backend did not work with Pulseaudio.

A fix for the ALSA backend is in upstream git.

Pulled Benjamin's patch from git.
