F14 recent problem, worked before -Creative sound distorted in VLM & no sound Youtube

Hi all,
Everything was working pretty well before, but after I did some package updates (which included a new kernel) - the sound in VLM player became distorted (as in metallic grinding/echo) and there were no sound in flash in my browsers. The similar sound was originally only happening in VMWare and I just stopped using it. There was some issue with gst earlier that was fixed. Rhythmbox works though.

I followed a thread
it removed a bunch of stuff like pulseaudio and other things and reinstall. I have also tried to use the older kernel. I can temporarily resolve the VLM distortion by switching the speaker settings. Here's the order that works for a few minutes once the sound starts echoing.

Start with sound preferences -> hardware -> settings for selected device
go from analog surround 4.0 output
to analog surround 4.1 output (this gives a metallic grinding sound)
back to analog surround 4.0 output (this returns to normal)
after a few minutes it starts echoing again.

Fedora 14 64-bit
Q9550 8 GB DDR2
Creative X-Fi Titanium

I'm not sure what I need to help resolve this problem. If there is any info I can print out, please let me know.

Update - changed the VLM tools -> preferences -> audio settings -> output module to alsa audio and it seems to work.

Youtube in Mozilla and Opera are still missing.

I found out that I just needed to reinstall totem.

yum install totem

did the trick. I guess it was uninstalled.
