How do you bridge between iceweasel and jackd? Given that jackd is not a
generic desktop sound server but the underlying routing framework for
audio production environments (read: studios), you somehow need to
bridge your consumer applications (read: flash) to jackd.

There are a couple of options:

   1. Use libasound2-plugins and its alsa-jack bridge

   2. Use pulseaudio-module-jack, if need be, run
      "pactl load-module module-jack-sink" and then pavucontrol to
      redirect your sound to jackd

   3. Use a jack-enabled libflashplugin-extrasound.

I clearly recommend 2), and I can confirm that the video plays fine here
with iceweasel and jackd2. (jackd2 might be more forgiving wrt slow
applications, not meeting the realtime expectations like ordinary jackd
clients do)

Note that you can also increase jackd's buffer size, so applications
have more time to fill the buffers.
