no sound in flash plugin
Last modified: 2008-11-16 11:50:35 EST
Description of problem: I have flash 10 plugin installed on Fedora 10 preview and I have no sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: not a peep
Expected results: sound
Additional info: All other sound works. System sounds, mo3 playback, video playback, etc.
I got this fixed, although i'm not sure it's fixed correctly. I installed both the .386 and .amd64 versions of ndispluginwrapper and libflashsupport and now youtube video and audio works.
Please report exact version numbers for
Rumours says and experience confirms that libflashsupport makes no difference for flash 10 - can you verify that?
Is is my experience (Bug 459011) that it is very hard to point out exactly what makes flash problems appear or go away. Could you try uninstalling and reinstalling the nspluginwrappers and verify exactly what makes your problem come or go?
If you think it is related to pulseaudio then run
and post the output

nspluginwrapper 1.1.2 (both 32bit and 64bit)
I've read/heard the rumors too.
All I know is I had no video until i installed the 32bit nspluginwrapper (not installed by default)
Then I had no sound until I installed the libflashsupport (both 32 and 64bit)
Well ... then that is just how it is.
Fedora contains the components to make the proprietary plugin work, even on an unsupported platform. Fedora can't and won't do much more to support it. So your experience really belongs in an unofficial fedora faq. Oh ... it is there already ;-)
I think this issue could be closed.
That's fine, it can be closed. The reason i filed the bug was because there is clear documentation that says libflashsupport is not needed. That is clearly not true.
What clear documentation saying that have you seen? Can you give exact pointers - and/or help getting it fixed there?
As filer you can close this issue - I can't.
Mark, the description on http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f10preview/en_US/What_is_the_Latest_on_the_Desktop.html#sn-Web_browsers could perhaps be improved, but it do say exactly what you experienced; that libflashsupport.i386 is needed on x64.
There are many errant forum posts out there, but hopefully this bug report will help if someone has the same problem.
I am closing this bug. Thanks.
