No Audio in Flash 8 Video on MacBookPro

I was browsing YouTube last night and wanted to watch the clip of Steve Jobs’ interview on CNBC about the 5th Avenue Apple Store. When I got to the clip, the video was working fine, but I couldn’t hear anything. In fact, I couldn’t hear audio on ANY Flash 8 Video clip. I guess I had just not watched any since switching over to my new MacBookPro.

After searching the discussions at Apple Support, I finally had the solution. Go to Applications > Utilities > Audio Midi Setup. Look for the Properties For: drop-down and select Built-in Output. Here is a screenshot of the panel.

Now look under the Audio Output section and find the Format drop-down. Mine was set to 96000.0 Hz. Switching this to 44100.0 Hz returned audio to any Flash 8 video clip I watched.

I am not really sure why this was set to 96000.0, or why returning it to 44100.0 fixed it, but it did. I am also not sure if this happens on the new MacBooks either. I have a friend with a 15″ MacBookPro and his seemed to work fine. The only difference between mine and his is that he did not do the Migration Assistant to copy files from his Powerbook, and I did.

Check out the great Apple deals at Amazon.
