@muru no because I'm dumb :( If it happens again, I'll check. For what it's worth, syslog was fine. The last things in kern.log were some innocuous messages about HDMI.

It's going again after a reboot, but I'll leave the question open just out of curiosity; I can't remember seeing that happen before.

I do from all other software, but not Chrome.

Yes, I have tried Chrome with freshly-made user accounts and after removing my own .config directory. This problem has been going on for almost a year, so I've had plenty of time to experiment :)

Thanks, but as far as I know modern versions of Chrome don't support the old Netscape plugin API any more. I have flashplugin-installer installed on my system, but with Chrome the only Flash option available is PepperFlash.

@impinball I agree - I've managed to get all sorts of audio stuff working on this machine (in fact playing with SuperCollider and Overtone today) but the only thing consistently broken is Chrome (and Chromium).

@the_Seppi works fine in Firefox, not at all in Chrome. Youtube and Vimeo work in Firefox, not in Chrome. Amazon music previews work in Firefox, not in Chrome. Using a freshly-created test user with Chrome (so, no saved config) doesn't work either. I'm of the opinion that it's a Chrome issue :)

@the_Seppi well that gives me volume control etc, but it has no effect on Chrome. (Thanks for the suggestion however.)

@the_Seppi no, it isn't, as far as I know. I'm running xfce4 as my desktop; I don't even know where such a settings panel (or config file) might be.

comment 14.04 Google Chrome Audio Playback Issues
None of these things helped Chrome play audio (and I can't say I'm surprised; my audio works fine in general and Chrome is the only application with a problem).
