Sound stopped for Flash, MP3 and AVI [Solved]

Post by babujbf » Tue Nov 10, 2009 5:02

I don't know what happened, Ive been installing and updating stuff lately since I made this fresh install. And somewhere along the line I lost sound on all windows formats such as avi, mp3 and even youtube. They load fine, but no sound...

You guys got any idea what it could be?

Thanks

Try as root # equo install libflashsupport : see if that helps first.

yeah the alsaconf thing did it, it works fine when I do it but for some reason I have to do it every time I turn on the computer for every session...

Got any ideas?

Do you have more than one soundcard? If you do, disable one.

Run alsamixer as root. Should save it.
