View Full Version : No sound in YouTube

04-10-2013, 11:36 AM
My youtube player has suddenly gone silent. My PC volume control is fine, sound is fine in IE, eg in TV3 News, sound works fine for some video that I have on a data stick.
But when I try to open youtube videos, the little volume control in the bottom left hand corner of the youtube screen is has an X after it and it does not respond to any attempt to remove it.
I have downloaded the latest Flash Player but no change.
May seem a trivial problem to you guys but I got good help here a while ago on a more major problem and the alternative is to ring my ISP's so-called Help Desk, which tends to be an unsatisfying experience.

I doubt if ISPs would sort out OS software problems for you.

If you move your cursor over the speaker icon with the cross against it, do you see a volume slider bar appear ? The symptons you describe suggest the slider has been turned down. You can't see it if the cursor isn't on the speaker.

Sound in YouTube.
Sorry, forget it. Problem seems to have fixed itself. (Just dragged the little slider beside the X'ed volume control and it came alive.)
