I am working on your ACL solution. However, the users cannot acces pulse 
or volume settings anyway.
I also found some solution:if the user is logged in and do in konsole:
pulseaudio -k
and than
pulseaudio -D
The flash sound and other players get's ok.
Just need to automate this,because users don't have access to cli
