Help! My new messages in Google Voice do not play back properly!!! Greg K. 3/19/09 7:22 PM
I converted from my account earlier today.  I was able to listen to the one message in Google Voice.  Since my first message was left at 3pm EST, I cannot play the message!  I do soo the transcript (which is weak).  I have tried with Firefox 3.0 (what I used earlier) and no audio comes out.  I do see the line move across for a 20 second message VERY fast.  I then tried with Explorer and the 20 second message plays in 4 or 5 second (super high speed).
 
I can't hear my messages when logged in.  This is an issue!  (I can still hear audio such as Youtube).  I have never had a problem like this.  Any ideas what is or may be going on???

Update:  In Firefox 3.0, when I hit the play button, it sdoes not seem to "start" (ie the little dot does not move to the right as time lapses or a message is supposed to be played).  This is not an issue with Explorer 7.  The message continues to play at hyperspeed - so fast that I cannot detect a single word in the message.
 
There is text for both messages.
 
Is there some strange chance that I am not playing them correctly?  I have used GC for 1.5 years without an issue.  When I hit the arrow to play a message it turns into the pause button.
 
Any one else having this issue???

The update of the flash player solved the problem for me!  Very strange, it worked before and then it stopped. With the Flash Player update using Firefox 3 and XP I am in business.
 
Thanks sjf!

I am having the same trouble.  My messages play back 10x faster than they should.  It sounds like a bug buzzing.  I cannot update flash on this computer.  I do not have the rights.  I will try that at home.  I guess I am out of luck here.

I am suffering from this problem as well (voicemail plays back too fast). I tried both ie 7 and firefox 3. If I download the messages and play locally they are fine so I assume it's a flash player for me as well. Not sure how to update flash, is that just going to adobe.com and downloading the lastest?
 
Thanks
