Windows 7: IE9 RC: No Audio in HTML5 YouTube Videos

IE9 RC: No Audio in HTML5 YouTube Videos

Title says it all. I've had this problem since I used the IE9 Beta. I was hoping it would be fixed in the RC, but it hasn't, leading me to believe that it's an issue with my computer. Does anyone know why my computer won't play the audio in HTML5 YouTube videos while using IE9 RC? I can do it with Minefield x64 and Chrome 10.

Should I assume the lack of response means that no one has a solution?

Hmmm...perhaps it's time for a clean install...again.

Perhaps post a link ? I don't want videos telling me about what it is.. search is not turning up anything.

nm, had to opt-in at youtube.com/html5

Sound plays here fine in the 32bit ie9RC on win7x64

There's no real specific link for this problem. Any HTML5 video in YouTube doesn't play any audio in IE9. Like I said, I have absolutely no idea what could be causing this.

First,you should check the volume for the youtube video,make sure isn't mute
Then you can try to use the Compatibility View for youtube,
sometimes in Compatibilty View,the add-on(Flash Player) works better

If the above still cannot solve the problem,tried to reinstall the Flash Player and try again

I just tried HTML5 youtube in IE9 x32bit and works well but not the x64bit.
Under IE9 x64 when tried youtube HTML5, it requests permissin to download Adobe flashplayer

Oh WOW. Why did I not try this before reinstalling Windows? It could have saved so much trouble if it fixed the problem.

Oh well, either way, the problem is solved. I just reinstalled and the audio now works.
