Flash and sound after recent flash update.

Well due recent changes I noticed that using flash on firefox was hijacking the sound on my system.
If you aren’t a careless internet surfer and still want to use the latest amd64 flash version that didn’t have the sound problems you can try this.

mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins

then download this flash release.
Extract libflashplayer.so into the directory we just created and restart firefox.

Some other people say they have benefit by setting an environmental variable but that didn’t work for me.
I’m not sure if the issue is only related to x86_64 yet.

    I would also like to say that I think the newest flash (back to 32 bit) breaks the 64 bit hulu desktop player.

      Hulu player is masked in Portage for this reason.

      “- media-tv/huludesktop-0.9.7 (masked by: package.mask)
      # Mark Loeser (05 Jul 2010)
      # adobe-flash-10.0 has been masked for security reasons, which huludesktop
      # depends upon for amd64”
