Hi Tom -- Yes, it's frustrating.  Search for my posts here in 2007 for
my struggles and solutions with sound on etch.

You have sound, you say.  But not with video.

Which players work/don't work?  Sound with flash running thru a browser
is different from sound from an mpeg4 file playing on mplayer.

If you use mplayer, what's in .mplayer/config?

This list is the right place.  Just provide some more detail, and the
experts will jump in after we mere mortals swing and miss. :-P

Good luck,
