I have had a problem a time or two with an application "typing up", for lack
of a better term  the sound system.  Mostly with some USB external speakers
with Songbird and then trying to play a video.  Have you tried killing the X
server under Section M. Miscellaneous Part B of the Eva list?  Have you
poked around Sound Preferences also?  YouTube work ok?  Have no real clue
but just throwing out some things to look at off the top of my head.
