Windows 7: Videos sound always off by default

05 Oct 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Videos sound always off by default

Hi, Im trying to figure out if this is a windows issue, browser issue, flashplayer issue, or youtube issue. But every time i go to watch a video on youtube the sound is always off by default and i have to use the slider to turn it back on. Once i do that i am ok for that session, i can go from vid to vid and i am ok. But once i close the browser i have to do it again.

Win 7 64bit pro IE9

Im trying to elminate things one at a time.

So it happens on all browsers, IE, FF, Chrome, so since i never really use chrome im assuming its not a browser issue.

It does not happen when i click on the video installed on my pc. So im guessing its not a windows issue.

That leaves me with two items left over, flashplayer and youtube. and i dont know how to test those and i have not changed anything lately that i can remember.

Any ideas where to go from here... Thanks

No sound in Firefox watching videos
Running Firefox 3.05 on Windows 7 x64 7000 and I get sound from some places and not from others. YouTube is fine, 183 Top Gear - One Tank Fuel Trip (Part 1)- Video is nothing. I have installed ffdshow and still no luck. I also noticed no sound from WMV files. Thoughts?
