It works only on IE9 but unstable... no sound on google chrome.
Said to be fixed, but it is far from it :( I got newest version, even tried installing old version I just end getting; "you need to update to latest"

With the exception of the workaround already posted, this impacts on sound in flash-based video content on the web. The workaround has allowed me to get the functionality back, but this is not a permanent fix. Three weeks on, adding my vote in the hope that this will elevate the priority somewhat!?!

I experience this issue too.
When flash files (11.2) from previous Chrome version were copied to the newest one (overriding flash 11.3), the sound returned. As the flash in system was older one, IE worked fine. I attached DxDiag.txt.
I have two sound devices - AC97 on motherboard to use with headphones with Skype and the speaked conneced Sound Blaster that flash should use. Flash 11.3 doesn't use any card in my system.
On my PC at work the sound works fine with Flash 11.3.

I have sound problems with opera, only front speakers and subwoofer are working. With HTML5 works fine.
IE9 works fine.

I have the same problem. HTML5 sound OK no sound in Flash since last update.
12:57:17 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 17, 2012
No sound in all flash. I have no sound issues elsewhere.

Glad I found this link. Last week or so everything seemed to get an update, Windows, Flash, Norton, etc. Was googling for answers for a few days and finally found this. I'd say there are WAY more folks affected by this than would appear by this bug, as digging through search results for "Flash no sound" has apparently been a hot topic for years.

I am experiencing the same problems; beginning with Chrome yesterday and now with other browsers, the audio is not playing. This is critical as I am a professional musician.

I also have this problem, which appeared after installing version 11.3. Video works fine, but I have no audio (running Windows Vista32 sp2)
12:24:22 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 13, 2012
I encountered the same problem on Windows 7 (64 bit) and Google Chrome .
9:26:32 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 12, 2012
Same as the others, running Vista SP2 an no sound at all with flash. HTML5 works fine. Firefox seems to hang when flash videos are started, as if adobe flash player is having some issues.

June 11, 2012. Windows Vista 32.
After installing the update for Flash Player - 11.3.300.257 - on 6-10-12, I have no sound
on the internet in Firefox, Chrome or Safari. I do have sound with IE9. I also have sound
from itunes files that are on my computer. I have checked that all browsers are the most current version and gone through the items on this adobe help page:
Thanks to Chris Campbell at Adobe, for posting the sound samples to try:
I get sound on the html sample, with the flash sample there is no sound, the player
is stuck at "loading" even after several minutes.
