Ubuntu 11.10 automatically unmutes when I play a Youtube video. It might be a general flash problem. How do I configure the sound to never be modified by programs unless I control it do to so?

Where are you muting it? In YouTube or from the Ubuntu panel? – Oli Oct 31 '11 at 19:02

I have experienced this as well in 12.04! I have the system audio muted (as displayed in the small bar by the clock) and when loading a page with a video/ad in it that plays automatically, the sound it unmuted! Very uncool. – Jason Kleban Jun 22 '12 at 14:44
