Windows 7: Flash Player - YouTube Video Stops After a Second

Flash Player - YouTube Video Stops After a Second

Just recently after I did a fresh OS install on my old laptop, YouTube started acting up.

Every video that uses flash has no sound and will play for one second, rewind to 0:00 for three times in an attempt to start playing again and then an error will come up.

I have 64 bit OS - Windows 7, 32bit Firefox (newest) and newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

I tried clearing my browser's cache, disabling addons, restarting firefox, restarting my laptop, re-installing flash player, using another browser (Opera) searching the forums and I'm here now.

Any help would be great :3 thanks.

Try without Flash. Go here: YouTube and click the button Request the HTML5 player

I did, didn't help at all. Only the new videos can play using HTML5 (I tried many and none work), and this isn't a proper fix. I'm not looking for a temporary fix.

Thanks

Does your speakers work? It may be a sound problem. I found an old issue with the same problem. It worked with headphones plugged in.

Yeah, of course they do mostly though.
I'm able to listen to music with AIMP, but Media Player Classic Home Cinema won't play audio from my recorded wideo that had sound this morning. Yesterday I have disabled my microphone in devices (I have my reasons) I'll try re-enabling that and we'll see what happens then.

Edit: Turns out that disabling the mic + running AIMP all the time somehow breaks flash player.
