Unhappy No Sound On The Internet

I just changed my computer and reinstalled everything and for some bizarre reason it will play sound with windows media player and itunes but nothing online, like on animations or youtube. I went into tools>options and the sound options are ticked, I cant think of anything else to do! Its very irritating as I need sound to help with my media course!

please tell us more on what browser and what system you are using.

in the meantime check the volume control of your pc.

start menu>programs>accessories>entertainment>volume control.

push up all volume dials to the top.

I found out what the problem was, I had plugged it into the wrong thing at the back. What I find bizarre is that it played fine on Itunes and everything else, but nothing online.

Thank you for all your help

Internet Audio trouble shooting

This is posted on the Youtube site under troubleshooting. It worked for me. I was having the same issue.

Why can't I hear the audio when I'm watching a video?

For Mac users:

1. Open "Applications" > "Utilities" > "Audio MIDI Setup"
2. Check the properties for "Built In Output". Make sure it's set to 44.1 KHz.

For PC users:

1. Click "Start".
2. Select "Run".
3. Type: sndvol32
4. Click "OK".
5. Make sure the following are not muted and the volume is up for "Volume Control" and "Wave".

If you're still having trouble, check to see if your system meets these requirements for running the video player:

1. Macromedia Flash Player 7.0+ plug-in
2. Windows 2000 or higher with latest updates installed
3. Mac OS X 10.3 or higher
4. Firefox 1.1+, Internet Explorer 5.0+, or Safari 1.0+
5. Broadband connection with 500+ Kbps

Videos on YouTube are streamed through an Adobe Flash player. For the best viewing experience, we suggest you install the latest version of Adobe Flash after removing any old versions you've installed.

Thanks!

I lost audio from all internet apps a couple of weeks ago, not just youtube.

This worked perfectly for me. I don't know why my settings got changed over, but putting it back to 44.1 KHz did the trick.

also check here

For anyone else that hasn't resolved this problem, check the following link, as I had the same problem that seemed to come out of nowhere. After some research, I found that this solution worked. It basically involves replacing and remapping files to the registry.

Here is the link:

I hope this helps, as it appears to be a relatively common problem with so many possible answers, yet many of them not working in various forums.

Peace

I have the same problem: no sound on any of my fully updated internet browsers, (MSN, IE, Safari, Mozilla). Video functions fine from sites (youtube, google, yahoo, veoh) but there is no audio. The sound problem is completely limited to the browsers; when I open the exact same videos through the program Veoh TV, (from Yahoo, Google and Veoh), or internet videos through Realplayer, QuickTime and Windows Media Player the sound is fully functional. I thought it must be an adobe flash player problem but I have reinstalled and updated it several times.

I have tried ALL of the above suggestions, and more found elsewhere and not seen any success. I am at a complete loss! Please help!

Microsoft Windows XP Pro 2002 Service pack 3
Safari 3.525.21.0
Mozilla Firefox 1.8.20080.4669

If any other info is needed just ask!
IE 7.0.5730.11
Adobe Flash 9

Hope this Helps! x

Hi I've been having the same problem for AGES now and I only got rid of it yesterday. Unfortunately it includes creating a new user account. That's the only thing that has worked for me. I really hope this helps. The only reason I signed up is to post this message. Take Care & good luck! Charley x

Possible fix

This seems to be an ongoing problem... I found that there are many claimed soultions out there, so I'd give them all a try and you might find one that works. As for me, I had no sound on any web browser, or system sounds (start-up sounds, mouse clicks) but did have sound on media player.

*First thing I did was the most obvious,
Check the sound properties and make sure nothing was muted and that the sound icon was checked and all the volume levels were up. no good.
*Second I un/reinstalled all of my flash devices. adobe, quicktime, etc.. didn't work
*Third I un/reinstalled my sound drivers, then eventually bought a new soundcard figuring maybe the integrated sound had malfunctioned, but to no avail.
*Next I tried checking the registry and seeing if wavemapper (as mentioned in other forums) was there- it was.
*Third I downloaded the K-lite codec pack, figuring the problem was in my registry. The fix all part was greyed out...
*I decided to try a system restore on a date before I lost my sound, wouldn't work.

Finally being frustrated and out of ideas I decided to pull out my OS cd and go with a Windows Repair.
It's not hard to do, and it doesn't remove any of your saved data such as songs, pictures, and word documents. But I would make a backup of any data you wouldn't want to lose, just in case. This was my last resort before a complete reformat.
Here's a good link to go by

This worked great for me, I now have sound, all of my files, and my system runs just as smooth as ever.

2.Double Click to open Sounds and Audio Devices.
3.Click Sounds tab.
4.Scroll down to Windows Explorer, which is present under the Programs events.
5.Select Complete Navigation double click on it and click Start Navigation.
Click OK/Apply.

Goodluck
