It took a bit, I installed many different version of flash, moved files around, but atleast it did not work. Then I came across this thread, entry number 7. I brought up alsamixer (just type alsamixer in your terminal).
Arrowed over to Speaker (just use the right arrow key on your keyboard):
Do you see the MM, right above 64<>64 on the far right? Well, that is what is stopping your sound. That's right the speakers are muted!
Hit m (just type the letter m on your keyboard) to unmute:
See the OO, that means that you are no longer muted. Hit Esc to exit and return to the terminal.
I did this all while running Bleach in Chrome on YouTube and what happen?!? I heard sound; lovely sound!
All is well with my computer now (sad, but true).
