How i can configure audio output in html5? Firefox html5 plays only on first ALSA sound card ignoring my ~/.asoundrc in home directory. But other sounds like plugins Flash and other according to ~/.asoundrc work fine for me in firefox. My system: Debian Jessie x86_64 Browser: firefox v28.0 x86_64 Audio: ALSA only (no pulseaudio, no OSS, no phonon ... etc)

Problem only with html5 audio
