OK, now the latest. The machine where I applied the fix (turning hw acc off) and it worked has now started playing up again with the same issue. My colleague reported the issue on his machine and the fix did not work, so to double check:
1) I went to this machine, applied the hw acc back and tested our website. The sound turned choppy and intermittent as expected.
2) Turned the h/w acc off again and this time the audio continued to remain choppy and intermittent.
3) Have restarted the machine and the issue seems to remain.
4) No changes have been made to Flash (no updates I mean from the website)
This issue seems like it is going to snowball over the next few days with the uptake of 11.3. Adobe really need to provide a solution. Can I get some idea on what you want from the dxdiag as I get the tool reporting everything as normal. Please treat this as urgent.
I hope some one can help me.
I have an AS2 flash project that has a stage area of 1920x1080
on this layout I am presenting dynamic images and text via XML.
I have also an area to present a live DVD input using the webcam component.
The application is designed to run locally on a PC using Flash Player 11.
DVD is giving a Pal standard resolution output of 720x586 pixels
On the stage I have defined an area of 400x300 to present the webcam component via xml.
Problem I have is I was expecting the Video to be scaled to fit the area defined
but the video is not being scaled instead it is being cropped to 400x300
We have dynamically set the Mode for the camera via xml and setting the favorArea to true so that resizing the video will have priority over the quality of the processed feed.
e.g. imagine watching the CNN / BBC news these channels have the graphics
and headers scrolling at the bottom of the screen. These bottom graphics are being cropped, and so are the rest of the sides of the video feed.
part of the code:
my_cam = Camera.get();
my_cam.setMode(pSettings.width, pSettings.height, 30, true);
var b:MovieClip = this.attachMovie("IDvideoWebcam", "aa", this.getNextHighestDepth());
my_videoCamera = b.vid;
b._width = pSettings.width;
b._height = pSettings.height;
Can you please advise me what it is I am doing wrong and how to solve this scaling issue.
I would be greatful for a response / sample file would be even better.
If not an AS2 solution/then please explain AS3.
I look forward to you reply.

Once again trouble with Adobe Flash Player and Mac. I waited forever to have this problem corrected a year ago and now it's back. I pay for the chat lines that I can't use because the Adobe Flash Player will not allow me to activate my mic, and then the pop up box freezes on the screen and I can't close it. I have to completely exit the website and log back on. Why is this such an ongoing problem and why does it take so long to fix?
I just tried the 11.3 and still not working. I have even updated to the 11.4 beta and still no luck. Tried with IE, Firefox 14, and Waterfox 14. Tested it using facebook to take a new photo, no option to "allow", tried IE and it doesnt even show as much as firefox.

Well Ive fixed the problem. I threw my webcam away & went out & bought a new one! Seems this is the only way to resolve this - everytime adobe update their programs & you find a device no longer works you have to go out & buy a new one! Not much of a fix admittedly but it seems this is the only way to go.
Perhaps Adobe have some kind of patent on webcams & get commission on new purchases?
Anybody experiencing audio issues after the Flash update, please check the bug raised below and vote if it is relevant. I have raised this bug and Adobe have stated that they can reproduce the issue.
@Shiraz - Would you mind reposting this question over on the Flash Professional forums? This forum is primarily for end users, the Pro forums will get you in touch with a wider developer audience.
@robertjmnyc - What version of the player do you have installed? If this is a recent break, please try going back a version or two to verify it works again. If it does, please open a new bug report at bugbase.adobe.com and include your system details.
@nomis1955 - No, we don't get a percentage on new hardware sold. Sorry you went though that but glad you got it fixed.
@mahesh_bca - I've escalated your bug internally, but please continue to let others know about it so that we get their votes and comments.
@robertjmnyc - What I'd suggest is to downgrade to a previous version of Flash Player. I'd recommend starting with 10.3.183.20. If this works, then open a bug report over at bugbase.adobe.com and include your system details. See the FAQ's and link below for instructions:
