    Smile YouTube working


    I've finally solved the most annoying thing I was facing these days.
    With Opera 9.51, flash-plugin-9.0.124.0-release.i386.rpm and PulseAudio(I hate it!) turned off I got a non-crashing browser for watching the YouTube videos.

    I had the same problem but a different solution:
    under Opera 9.52 I went into Tools>Preferences>Advanced>Downloads selected swf (flash) and changed the plugin that ought to be used from /usr/lib/netscape/plugins/flashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.so (since in Firefox, Flash words fine).
    no installing, no disabling pulse audio.

    In the mean time, I've figured out another solution. I've downgraded Firefox to the original 2.0.13 version, and killed the PulseAudio, so now I can watch and download YouTube videos with Firefox too. Again, the troublemaker was PA, just like with the Skype. Now, when I have all the audio stuff working with the good old ALSA, I have no problems.

    how did you get rid of pulse?
    when I select it to be deleted, compiz, kdepim, amarok, vlc and like everything else is deleted too. I don't want to lose just everything just to get rid of pulse.

    In MCC you can disable PulseAudio and also to forbid the redirection of ALSA audio streams to it. Just enter into the Command Center, find Hardwares and Audio System.

    No I didn't delete it. It was enough to disable it, so it can't do any harm anymore. Something I respect in Mandriva, that you can switch off something is useless. I had to do the changes in Xine engine too, since the audio drive is by default the pulse.
