I have a brand new Inspirion 1525n running Ubuntu 8.04 with Firefox as my browser. Overall I am pleased with this product and O/S. It has taken my browsing, research and communication to a new level.

I am having trouble with the sound on this machine. I can play CD's and DVD's and have excellent quality sound. No skip, delays or anything of the sort there. My effectual sounds work properly as well.

The problem is with video from the internet such as You-Tube or FoxMedia. The video picture plays fine but I don't have any sound at all.

I've toggle the sound options between auto, pulse and alsa with no results. I have unistalled and reinstalled the libflashsupport to no avail. I tried adobe flash player and it wouldn't run the audio either.

I greatly appreciate your time.

Swfdec

Have you tried Swfdec?

Many people running Fedora 9 x86_64 (Ionno if you installed an x86 or x86_64 version of Ubuntu) solved the problem by installing libflashsupport.i386 and libflashsupport.x86_64.
