This is a strange one, and will require a longer post ... so sorry in advance.
For some very strange reason all of a sudden I have no audio on any Youtube video, video plays fine.. BUT I do have audio if I watch a vimeo video, or anyother video not hosted by Youtube.
I do have some clues as to what might have led up to the problem.
-I went to do updates on my motherboard MSI
-I downloaded and installed their live update utility
-then let it scan my computer... it told me I had a number of updates... two of them had to do with my onboard sound on the motherboard.
-I downloaded and installed those.... tested the audio ... everything worked fine, including YT
-After getting annoying permission messages from this motherboard live update utility I decided to uninstall the utility.
-That is when the YT problem started.
-So I reinstalled the utility again... rescanned.... but this time it only showed 1 of the two updates it originally showed. I installed the one audio update.
I wouldn't think that by uninstalling this utility, it would also uninstall the updates it made, but it appears that it did.
So with that long story in mind, what should I do? I've already tried to have the utility update again, but it did not fix the problem.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
