Sound is activated.  However I've noticed that sound doesn't always work
for Flash 7 videos (youtube, google video) but I've verified the sound
*does* work (homestarrunner).  The only way I was able to get sound to work
all the time was to run the plugin in linux-firefox.  Although sound does
work, there seems to be some synchronization error (I've seen this with
almost every linux app which generates sound) where the sound either lags
the video by X seconds (where X is constant, around 1-2 seconds, depending
upon the application) or lags by Y + N*t seconds, where the lag gets
increasingly behind-- something I've noticed with flash7 video.  Strangley
I can reset the lag by hiding and showing the window while the video is
playing, but there's still a minimum lag.

Good luck,
