Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506690
pulseaudio unuseable at leat at this moment
Last modified: 2009-06-29 08:29:31 EDT
sound does not work with flash plugins in firefox (using adobe flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386). Device on application page in a gnome mixer disappears and then appears (flashes) few times per second and so on.
pulse audio daemon very high CPU usage.
Everything works fine with pulse audio disabled, I mean uninstalled and daemon not running, even with oss enabled back again to get sound working in vmware workstation 6.5.2.
Some more info that may help, on Fedora 11:
I see the same behavior in everyone's favorite (NOT!) audio app, skype: the application name flickers in the Applications tab of the Sound preferences application.
For totem, vlc, and mplayer the device doesn't do the flickering, but sound is VERY glitchy.
If the Volume Control app is open the sound in skype and the other movie players is near perfect - sounds like a refcounting issue with the pulseaudio server closing connections when it shouldn't.
FWIW, video playback and skype was perfect in F10.
More info on hardware:
$ cat /proc/asound/pcm
00-00: ALC885 Analog : ALC885 Analog : playback 1 : capture 1
00-01: ALC885 Digital : ALC885 Digital : playback 1 : capture 1
00-02: ALC885 Analog : ALC885 Analog : capture 2
This is on a Macbook Pro 3,1 Santa Rosa and audio worked perfectly in both F9 and F10
Krzysztof, please file a abug against Adobe's bug tracker. I cannot fix Flash, since it is closed source software.
