Support Topic: Sound Issues, Install older version of Adobe Flash
Scenario: Viewers are saying there is a cracking or bubbling distortion in your sound, and you have Adobe Flash 11.7 installed.
Discovery: We’ve found that some musicians produce a crackling or bubbling digital distortion when using a dynamic type mic. These are usually the traditional music store microphones. Musicians may not be aware of the distortion unless they are told by the viewers or listen closely from the StreetJelly test_broadcast page. The problem seems to have started with the latest version of Flash 11.7. It doesn’t work well with older sound/microphone drivers. The distortion was fixed by a number of our musicians by installing an older version of Flash. Version 10.3 is a good version to use.
Note: DO NOT USE Flash versions prior 10.3. They are incompatible with StreetJelly.
Before you get started: Check your version of flash.
Uninstall Flash 11.7:
Download and Install Archived version of Flash: Choose Flash 10.3
Direct link to Flash 10.3:
This zip file contains all the different versions of Flash 10.3. You will run the .exe file for your specific computer (Win, Mac, Linux, etc). Instructions are included in the README.TXT file.
Final Thoughts: With an older version of Flash, remember not to automatically choose to upgrade to the latest version of Flash. Adobe will most likely popup notifications for a later version. Just ignore those.
