I am looking for a hint how I can have sound with firefox (youtube).

First, I test if audio is available at all:

    speaker-test

The expected noise is emitted by the card.

I then start dbus

    eval $(dbus-launch)
    export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

and pulseaudio

    pulseaudio -C &

and finally

    firefox &

When I navigate to youtube to watch a movie, the speaker stays silent and firefox notifies me with "To play audio, you may need to install the required PulseAudio software."

Is there something I can do to find the cause of this?
