Description of problem:
New Fedora 11 - sound works (effects, saytime, etc), but nothing from
Flash plugin 9.0 r124
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Could we get output of the command
rpm -qa \*xulrun\* \*firefox\* \*mozilla\* \*flash\* \*plugin\*
(just copy and paste to the command line ... these are real asterisks not just making it bold)
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
# rpm -qa \*xulrun\* \*firefox\* \*mozilla\* \*flash\* \*plugin\*
Note: this is a freshly installed Fedora 11, with updates as of 2009-08-31
From the initial comment it is evident what the problem is. Flash 9 is old and will not work since that was pre-pulseaudio. Flash 10 has better support for pulseaudio. If one follows all the steps in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Multimedia/Flash it will work.
Anyway, obviously not a bug in firefox.
When I installed Fedora 11 fresh, I copied/restored my previous
"home" files, including ~/.mozilla (too many stored passwords and
such). That old plugin came along for the ride :-(
Thanks for the help
I have the same problem.... I get no sound from flash whether I use the 32bit plugin with nspluginwrapper, or the 64bit beta plugin without nspluginwrapper.
I tried to compile and install the libflashsupport library directly from adobe. I did get sound, but it was out of sync.
However, after finding the old
rebuilt and installed it everything worked fine. I guess the solution for the time being would be to provide the libflashsupport library again. At least until all this gets sorted out.
Oh... I forgot to mention the problem is noted with the latest Firefox release in F11 repository and Flash 10 plugins.
Eli, did you follow the steps from the URL in comment 3? In particular, pay attention to the part about needing to install the 32bit version of alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
Of course.... But, currently, the 32bit issue has become irrelevant since I'm using the 64bit flash plugin with a great deal of success.
The sound issue has been driving me batty.
Oh... I should mention... I'm beginning to suspect that there is some problem with the interaction between nspluginviewer and pulseaudio.... I'm seeing a lot of problems with plugins and multimedia streams... crashes of both Firefox and Konqueror (not a flash issue). But those are to some extent, different issues and I do need to investigate further before I can file bug reports that make some sense.
K... Finally took the time to investigate. And my assumptions were wrong. I believe the crashing that I've run across recently are due to the beta state of the 64bit flash plugin.
However, that still doesn't take away from the problem I had on the 32bit official release.
I really hope we can work this kink out.
If there is anything more that I can do please do not hesitate to ask.
File a different bug, then. Your issue seems different from the reporter's since it works for him, though the symptoms are the same.
