No Sound In Chat Room
« on: Thursday 09 September 21 09:55 BST (UK) »
Anybody use the chatroom ?.....Since the demise of Adobe Flash Player, I have had no sound when in the room....I know a lot of people find it annoying, and turn it off, but I found it jolly useful, as I use the room in the early hours, and invariably doze off, and it was good to be notified when someone came in......anyone know of a fix ?.....Many Thanks....

Del,

We are not aware of how to bring back sound in the chat, as it relied on Flash Player.

There are some workarounds that might work, but are untested by us:

Good luck,
