9. Flash audio does not play after installing Audacity (Mac OS X only)


*update 5/6/2014 - This issue has been addressed since Audacity1.2 and early 1.3 versions. Audacity is now at 2.0.5.

 

There is a well-documented bug with Audacity that affects the Adobe Flash Player on Mac OS X. The issue is more common with Intel-based computers, but can affect any Mac OS X system.

Audacity resets the Audio rate on some systems to 96000Hz. Flash Player versions older than 9 cannot play audio at rates above 44100Hz.

To fix the problem:

  1. Open the Mac OS X "Applications" folder, then the "Utilities" folder, then launch "Audio MIDI Setup."
  2. Change the Audio Output setting to "44100.0 Hz."
  3. Quit Audio MIDI Setup.

Another fix is to install the latest Adobe Flash Player.
