* Is libflashsupport.so in /usr/lib/ ?
* Have you done : export AUDIODEV=`utaudio`
* Have you closed firefox and all other applications that might steal the
   sound, like mp3-players and rdesktop, etc
* And most important: do you get sound at all?
   you can try this with the "sound of god test" which is:
   cat /boot/vmlinuz > $AUDIODEV
