Flash sound perfect in Ubuntu?
By Weijun on Jan 03, 2008
The sound for Flash in Firefox finally seems stable. In all old versions, when you starts Firefox, you can hear the sound in a Flash content. But then, after a while, for no reason, probably due to running another native program using the audio interface, it suddenly stops and never makes any sound until Firefox is restarted. I'm not a hardware geek, after several failure of different configurations reading from the Net, I give up and don't believe there can be nice sound for Flash in Firefox.
For 8.04, it looks solved. I can listen to pandora.com and running mplayer at the same time. So, finally I needn't go back to the Meebo window every other minute and can rest assured relying on the ding dong.
Off topic, I've looked at the recently released Fedora 8, with a Live CD-ROM that can be also used as the installation disk. This is just the very reason I choose Ubuntu over Fedora. Maybe I can give it a try some day?
Update: About to go home, I'm now listening to Pandora, YouTube, NetVibes (Java Posse podcast) and mplayer simultaneously, and I can still hear the ding dong in Meebo. Oh, this is not my normal behavior anyway.
