Windows 7: Youtube videos have no audio and stop after 3 seconds

Youtube videos have no audio and stop after 3 seconds

Every video I try to watch has no sound and stops at exactly 3 seconds, without fail, every time. Started since I exceeded my monthly data cap and went to dialup speeds (64kb/s), I never visited youtube during this time, but since I have got my usual speeds back I get this issue. The video buffers fine and loads all the way to the end, but I can't get it to play past 3 seconds and it has no sound.

Any suggestions?

Interestingly, by disabling flash in "chrome://plugins/", some videos will play, but many more give the message "This video is currently unavailable"
