I thought this was resolved, but, honestly, it isn't.
I can restart alsa, and immediately have the same issue.
(At one point, restarting alsa seemed to, at the very least, temporarily
resolve this issue, but not anymore).
It's really starting to annoy me, in fact. Can't watch any
videos on Youtube, and any other flash animation (all those nauseatingly
cute eCards your AOL using Grandma sends for the holidays) etc.
My Ubuntu laptop doesn't seem to be having any such issue,
but I didn't update the flash plugin on that one (think it
has flash plugin 9, while I updated on this Lenny box
to flash10...although, the problem was here before I updated
the flash plugin, so I don't think that has anything to do with it).
I still use firefox as my browser on the ubuntu (jaunty) laptop.
Experiencing the delayed, then skipping sound on Debian Lenny,
regardless of browser (iceweasel, chrome, epiphany, etc.), with
both flash9 or (newly updated) flash10, using ion3 wm.
Not having any such problem in ubuntu jaunty with firefox with flash9, ion3 wm.
My daughter's machine, lenny, xfce with iceweasel and flash9 has the same issue as my lenny box.
My box is updated far more regularly. Probably haven't updated my kid's
box in 3 to 6 months, in all truth, but ran aptitude safe-upgrade on my
lenny box about a week ago.
Doesn't seem related to browser or wm, or even specifically one flash plugin. It just seems I have this problem on Debian Lenny.
So, is it, indeed, a flash bug?
or a Debian bug?
or, maybe just a Lenny bug (are squeeze and sarge users seeing this same issue)?
