I have no audio problem playing videos at google chrome or while playing any games on my desktop which i mean the sound play is smooth without any extra noise,but when i uses mozilla firefox to play any videos(e.g youtube),there will be sound like "zzz" or u may call it cracking which seems to be lagging sound but it is not lagging at all.I try to use my phone to play music through my speaker and it's working fine.It only happened recently few days ago,the sound is irritating which make any music sound like crap..Please help..Oh and for your information when playing the video the cracking sound is not so much but scrolling up and down the page it became worst and louder.

Note that Adobe has released new version of its Flash player to address security vulnerabilities.

You can check for problems caused by recent Flash updates and try these:

  • disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
  • disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

I had the same issue, not only with firefox, but with any other browser that uses flash, flash seemed to be the problem, i changed to safari, now I have no issues, I wish firefx ends its flash use so I can go back to it !

with me it happens with any browser, I looked on it on adobe forums and some people complain of the same thing, I just changed to safari, like 1hour ago, and I got youtube videos all good, spotify on while safar is up and no sound issues at all, if you go to your task manager you will see flash is not running, so, I guess flash is the real issue.

This is a sad sad day for me, having to leave firefox in order to get proper sound, even being the problem not entirelly firefox.
