I guess flash speaks directly to "hardware", so it's not possible to mix two sounds. Try gnash as a flash alternative in the browser or download the flash videos - many players can play flv files easily without requiring flash.

(Also, there are many helpers available to download these files. See youtube-dl, cclive and co)

It works here. Have a look if libasound2-plugins is installed. I think without that package sound mixing does not work properly. It's not shipped with the aptosid release.
      Code:
apt-get install libasound2-plugins
Restart your applications.

I've downloaded some flash movies from Youtube. I can play them (with sound) in a standalone player (comparable to vlc but not mentionable here). I don't have libasound2-plugins installed.

I understand the problem only occurs in another player, so you are able to watch video with sound in the browser.

My idea is to first check what soundlayer you're using: plain ol' ALSA or PulseSound. I guess that can make a big difference.

Another thing you can try is starting vlc (and perhaps another player) with a movie from the CLI and see if it displays an error message.

Also interesting is if you're never able to get sound through vlc at all, say immediately after booting, or if it only occurs when/after you've used another program (such as another media player or watched a video with a browser). What does
      Code:
lsof | grep "/dev/snd"
tell you?
