A possible fix for no sound in Flash on Intel Macs
Authored by: tatilsever on Mar 15, '06 11:10:16AM

When you have this problem, if you check System Preferences -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI -> Built-in Output, what is the sampling rate? Some apps inadvertently set that value to 96kHz instead of 44.2 or 48kHz, which the hardware cannot handle in most instances. Manually setting that back to the managable numbers through the pull-down menu fixes most of my problems. Of course, my aplogies, if yours is a completely different issue.

A possible fix for no sound in Flash on Intel Macs
Authored by: rebscott on Mar 16, '06 05:30:26AM

I ran across this problem with my Griffin Tech PowerWave sound device on my new Intel iMac. I couldn't get the PowerWave to drive my speakers. After going around in circles for a couple of weeks, I discovered, quite by accident, that if I switched, in Peak LE 5, under the Audio menu, the Sound Out setting from CoreAudio to Mac OSX Audio Hal (system), I could use the PowerWave to drive my speakers. So far, this has worked fine for all programs. I also reset my Audio Midi settings as other have indicated to a 44 or 48 sample rate.

Success! I opened up /Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup, and checked the Properties for Built In Output. Sure enough it was set to 96KHz. I changed it to 44KHz and audio in Flash returned immediately.

Thanks for the tip :-)
