Windows 7: Strange Youtube video sound problem

Strange Youtube video sound problem

I have Opera browser v 42.0 and have installed an extension that allows Youtube videos to be played in an HTML5 player.

The strange thing is tht when I try to go to a Youtube page and play a video, I get no sound at all despite all the volume controls being up ( player, Windows and sub woofer's volume controls are all set to medium). So I try to play an MP3 file on my SSD drive using VLC player. Sound comes ut of the speakers, so I go back to the Youtube video and try to play it again and I get sound!! This has been happening for a few days now. The omly way for me to hear sound on Youtube videos is for me to play anMP3 file first.
