I am having a problem where the sound on flash objects other than YouTube videos are giving a strange distortion. It has a high pitched pulse sound every second or less that resembles skips on a record. I have no idea what the problem is or how to fix it. Does anyone have an idea what I could do to fix this?

I am running Xubuntu 11.10. I think I might have redirected everything to pulse using a config file but I cannot seem to find it anywhere. It used the lines 'type pulse' in it. If anyone knows what I am talking about and how to find that file or whether or not it has any relevance I would greatly appreciate it.

EDIT: I solved it. The problem was that I needed to update the flash plugin in Chrome and Chromium manually.

I solved it. The problem was that I needed to update the flash plugin in Chrome and Chromium manually. I went to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and downloaded the ".tar.gz for other Linux" option and copied the .so file into the plugins directory for all of my browsers.
