It makes audio in youtube videos very poor. I would rather like to decide for myself if I wanto upmix stereo content or not. It is also about time Adobe Flash supports 5.1 and 7.1 audio.

I have this problem with all flash content on my computer. I use an Asus Xonar Essence STX. My computer is set for 7.1 surround to take advantage of software and hardware features with the card, but the physical output is stereo, and flash ends up being far, far louder than anything else.

This is of course insanely stupid for a number of reasons. First of all it is inconsistent with all other software out there (e.g. audio players such as foobar2000). Second, stereo streams are not supposed to be "expanded" when played on a 5.1 stream, as they were never meant to be played back using rear speakers. Third, it results in excessive bass output because acoustic summation typically results in higher sound pressure at the listening position in the lower portion of the spectrum. And finally, if the user really wants upmixing despite all these issues, most audio drivers allow him to do that at the system level anyway, which makes much more sense than doing it at the application level.
And, last but not least, because of this behavior your software does not comply with current 5.1 standards, namely ITU-R BS.775: http://www.itu.int/rec/R-REC-BS.775/
Page 12: "When a stereophonic programme is to be presented over a reproduction system with three frontal loudspeakers, the left and right signals of the stereo programme should be presented respectively over the left and right loudspeakers only.
When there is no surround signal in a programme, surround loudspeakers should not be activated."

I VOTE YES!!
Been having this problem for ages now. It happens on all sound cards from what I can see. It was happening with onboard realtek and now with Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty.

I'd much prefer the original stereo sound for YouTube and similar videos. The surround sounds unnatural and too bassy.

Ugh even with the build update on 3 I"M STILL getting that reset at max and it's more annoying than ever! I so am uninstalling to the previous 11.1 or something till SOMEONE here can actually get on the move and fix this thing. 5 times today surfing the web I got blown outta my chair because the volume was at max and refuses to remember the state I had it.

Sound becomes VERY loud when it is forced through all speakers.

Same thing since 11.3, 11.4 didn't change anything. Flash player make all my Logitech x540 play simultaneously. I don't even require proper surround in flash, but bring back the stereo please.

Fix it, fix it please! Horrible sound, and my driver can make much better 5.1 sound than flash player.

Also seem to be experiencing issue. I have a Logitech G35 surround sound headset.

This is something that really should get priority. I am genuinely concerned a video or ad blasting out at full volume could damage my speakers!

'Speaker Fill' should be optional and controlled by audio driver application, but this bug basically ignore how my surround audio system should work..

Win7 64bit, Flash Player 11.4.400.231 Beta 1 (also happened with the 11.3 release)
Any time a flash video is played the volume is set at max. I have lowered the volume in my sound settings and even tried muting flash player; but every time it goes back to max volume.

This is a very annoying bug while watching videos.
7:30:19 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 22, 2012
Please fix it. It's really annoying :(
1:15:24 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 19, 2012
Sound is forced to play through all 5.1 speakers even if audio file is in STEREO. It's really loud, especially bass. Please, fix it.
