How to enable sound in Adobe Flash plugin in Linux ?

I installed the Flash plugin from Adobe's yum repo, but there is no sound. When I look on the online settings manager, there is no control to set the sound output device.

On my system, there are multiple sound devices, only one of which works for playback - hw:1,0 in ALSA. In applications which allow me to choose an audio device, that works. The Totem media player, like Flash, has no audio settings. But when I use gnome-sound-properties to set the default playback device to "ALC889 analog", Totem works. Flash does not.

Chosen solution

No, no pulseaudio

However, I've solved it. Per http://www.seehuhn.de/pages/alsa, If I set the default ALSA device to card 1, then restart Firefox, Flash sound works. As does "aplay" with no options.

This also works to fix the same issue with the built-in OGG player in Firefox, per my question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/929698
