libflashsupport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pulseaudio

Not sure if this is a Flash or PulseAudio bug. In FF/Epiphany, Flash doesn't have sounds. Syslog contains:

Mar 20 23:18:51 pupu pulseaudio[5609]: sink-input.c: Failed to create sink input: too many inputs per sink.
Mar 20 23:18:53 pupu last message repeated 31 times

According to the pulseaudio developers is a bug in adobe flash 9. The only way to make it work is to use libflashsupport plugin. Revolution linux is writing one that works albeit sometimes makes firefox crash. Hopefully they will continue to develop it, they told me they asked Adobe permission to create a sourceforge project for that.

For anyone who wants it, has my GIT package for Hardy i386, and the tools to build your own if you wish. I might make some for older distros as needed if they don't build otherwise.

Fascinatingly, this library (as of last pull) causes Firefox to SIGSEGV apparently because pulse dies.

Should I open a new bug, then, about how libflashsupport in hardy crashes (I believe the order is) itself, which takes out, which in turn takes out whatever browser was using it?
