Windows 7: Sound messed up from the web; OK with Media Player

Sound messed up from the web; OK with Media Player

Not else sure how I can phrase it. All audio from the web, like youtube, or anything, sounds like electronic, almost "alien" like sound; Windows Media Player however is as usual, which is pretty good. So, the headphones work; the jack is OK; it seems to me the driver is ok as well. Just anything from the web. If someone either knows a solution or a place to look or a better way to phrase the question, I would great appreciated it.

Just in case, I rebooted; didn't fix the problem.

Think I had a similar problem too, see link below (and latest "Sound & Audio" post on here headed "Voices too deep & slow watching YouTube",) which although it's an interesting old and long post overall, this passage in italics has just about solved it for myself though there's still a slight distortion.

Hope this helps....

I had the same bug with bad sound, especially on bass-heavy sound bits, but I found a work around

Go to Start -> Control panel -> Flash Player -> Advanced

I deleted all "Site Data and Settings"

Sound is back to normal now."
