This is mostly true - it really depends on the program.  The wiki has a
great explaination of how to get sound from Flash with Mozilla/Firefox. 
As for the other programs, I set up a bunch of scripts that I have added
to the front of the users path.  All scripts are located in 
/usr/local/esd-bin/ and each script looks something like this (using the

/usr/local/esd-bin/frozen-bubble one as an example):

#!/bin/sh
if [ "$DISPLAY" != ":0.0" ]; then
   echo "running $0 with esd wrapper."
    exec esddsp /usr/games/frozen-bubble
else
    echo "running $0 without a wrapper."
    exec /usr/games/frozen-bubble
fi
echo "end esd wrapper script"

Maybe that will help you out some :-)
