Latest Flash Player Broken [Fedora 25]

The latest version of flash player (27.0.0.130) is broken. It will not play any audio whatsoever. If I manually revert it to an earlier version, it plays audio just fine. Is anyone else experiencing this inconvenience?

EdIt: In Firefox 55.

Yes (on Fedora 26). It sometimes works for me, but if it does, no other application can send audio output until I kill the page using Flash, as if it's not using PulseAudio or something like that.

The Flash that Chrome uses seems fine so that's my workaround for now.

In which case it would seem that it wants to use ALSA exclusively, therefore bypassing pulse. I suspected this could be the case, but my pulse apparently is not giving in to ALSA, and yours is. Weird!

Looks like this is now fixed in flash-plugin 27.0.0.159.
