Bug Description

Hi, I have no sound from jw-player.
Sound is working on flash (youtube) and silverlight5.1(netflix) through the alsa (set with winetricks, and winecfg on the prefix).

It has only just stopped yesterday, until then it was working fine. I did a dist-upgrade so that might have broken it, although I have re-installed firefox and pipelight-multi completely since then.

Distro is lubuntu
window manager is lightdm
uname -a = 3.13.0-37-lowlatency #64-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Mon Sep 22 21:56:22 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

pipelight-plugin --list-enabled-all

any jw-player site - http://www.jwplayer.com/video-ads/

for some reason when I start firefox in a terminal, firefox starts but the terminal returns to a prompt eg.
james2@super-R720:~$ firefox

(process:14494): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

there was no pipelight update for quite some time. The audio problem is most probably introduced by an update of a different package. However, the debug log may contain useful information for finding the problem. Please follow http://pipelight.net/cms/faqs/faq-how-to-capture-debug-output.html on how to create a debug log. Especially "please close all your browser windows" which you apparently didn't do.
