I have narrowed down the issue... it is soemthing to do with Windows USB Audio driver. The issue is caused when my usb speakers are connected. When I disable the usb audio device or unplug the usb speakers, flash player works OK.
Is there any way round this issue? the speakers are fine as they work ok connected to a Windows XP machine. It must be soemthing to do with the windows vista usb audio driver?
I moved this over to Using Flash Player, as it isn't specific to installation issues.
This isn't on my radar, but is something we definitely want to take a look at.
Please file a bug over at http://bugbase.adobe.com/. This is the best way to get things over to the engineering team.
Please run dxdiag with your USB speakers connected (start > run > type debugdiag.exe [Enter]), and attach the output to the bug. If you can include any information on the USB speakers (manfuacturer, model number, etc), that would be very helpful.
For my reference, here's the bug:
https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3217331 - Flash player 11.3.300.257 plays video too fast
In order to get traction on this, they're going to need to be able to reproduce it.
It would be great if you could do two things:
- Provide direct links to a couple videos that reproduce this problem.
If they're on different sites, and based in the US, even better. (Geographic restrictions make it hard to troubleshoot. We can VPN, but that can mask/introduce network and timing problems.)
- Provide the output of dxdiag.exe
Go to Start > Run > and type "debugdiag" no qoutes, then hit [Enter]
Save the output and attach it to the bug above.
I have the same issue with build 11.3.300.257 using Windows 7, I.E.9 and a set of Music Studio (Stripy Collection) USB speakers. The issue is resolved when I disable the USB speakers.
This is using the generic USB audio drivers from Microsoft which is up to version: 6.1.7601.17514 part of the SP1 update, but the problem was also there with the previous drivers also before the SP1 update.
