Is there any software that will let me mute a specific window?

admin
I would like to have the ability to listen to podcasts, etc, while surfing the net. Sometimes I run across pages that have annoying audio-included flash ads. Is there any way in XP to mute JUST my web browser, while keeping other audio running?

Thanks!

    Here's a freeware program that sounds like it should do what you want. Plus it's compatible with IE and Firefox.
    FlashMute:

    It was designed specifically to mute flash audio and video, but you can extend the muting to any sound that originates from your browser.


    I hope that works for you.
