FlashMute

CNET Editors' review

This ultrasimple application controls the sound of Flash movies you watch on the Internet, though it lacks a useful help file.

FlashMute sits idle in your system tray, where you can easily access it. From its tray icon, you can single-click it to mute or unmute the sound of Flash movies. Also, right-clicking the tray icon brings up a pop-up menu that contains a few options to enable the hot-key function and mute the sound in your browser. In our tests, muting the sound with a click or via the hot-key combination worked immediately. However, the program lacks a help file and we had to go to the publisher's Web site just to identify the proper hot keys.

Overall, the program worked well and any user needing to immediately mute the volume of Flash movies will appreciate this easy-to-use freeware.

    "Does not work with Vista Home Premium / Firefox / Flash"

    July 19, 2010  |   By Adam.H

    Version: FlashMute 2.06

    Pros

    It's a small download and quick install

    Cons

    It doesn't mute flash on my system: Windows Vista Home Premium / Firefox 3.6.6 / Flash 10.1

    Summary

    The program needs an update, I used to have it on my old XP system and it worked fine but sadly not any more....

    At the present time (July 2010) the FlashMute Addon for Firefox does not work with the current Issue of Firefox/Flash

    The only option I can find to mute flash in FF is the hack of adding a blank text file in to the Firefox program folder (normally C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox) and re-naming it to 'msacm32.dll' but this mutes ALL flash (including YouTube etc.) and you need to re-name or delete the file and re-start Firefox each time you want to un-mute.

    Really Adobe needs to address this and add a universal Mute function to Flash

    "Good app."

    April 18, 2008  |   By Neil_Boekend

    Version: FlashMute 2.06

    Pros

    It prevents me from having irritating noises when browsing.

    Cons

    I'd like to see the abilty to exclude selected tabs in Firefox form muting. I realise this is difficult, so I will not expect it. It is simply the only way I'd see an improvement in this software
