Heck, for that matter, who needs YouTube? Just have the Scotch.

Does “everything” include a restart? That usually works for me, when I run into baffling problems like that.

A lot of music videos have their sound turned off due to copyright issues. So they play the video only. What I do to get around it is download the MP3 off iTunes and then I play the MP3 while the video runs. That will show them!

That's called outsmarting them at their own game!

Make certain that Adobe Flash player (both IE AND non-IE) are up to date. Be certain to install correct version - as there is a 23bit and 64 bit version of each

Find Adobe Flash Player on this page (from FileHippo.com), select the proper version of each for DL, shut off all browsers, and run the resulting two files.

If no joy, then make certain the youtube vids you are looking at have not been sound disabled because of copyright restrictions - There is a notice on each page respectively if such is the case.

I guess it’s always possible that you are watching a video that has audio that is copyrighted. And as a result, YouTube bans the audio portion and the video is allowed to freely play.

Check your speakers/volume/sound controls on your computer.

I notice that Win7 sometimes starts up with the speakers muted. Why? I have no clue. That is just another one of the many strange things Windows does for no apparent reason.

Also, do you have headphones plugged in. I noticed on the Gateway I bought last fall that, plugging the headphones into the rear port mutes the speakers, whereas plugging the headphones into the front port allows the speakers to also play.

Yes, but if you set your computer to 22-bit or lower, it will not work. If you set your computer to 65-bit or higher, it will... I don't want to say. It is just too terrible to even think about. ;-) ;-) ;-)

Same error message in IE or Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you’re using an Apple, hit F10 to see if you have inadvertently muted the sound. F11 reduces the volume and F12 increases. sd

It looks like it may be a Mozilla Problem. I pulled You Tube up in Google Chrome and it(thus far) appears to be working.

Sure - with nine bits left over.

That's over a dollar!

Try this:

What I do is make this into a bookmark in the bookmarks bar.

Then visit the youtube video you want, and choose the bookmark.

I just tried to update and received this message on Adobe:

“Your Google Chrome browser already includes Adobe® Flash® Player built-in. Google Chrome will automatically update when new versions of Flash Player are available.”

So I guess I’m good to go....

I assume your audio works for other things like audio files on your computer and or other video sites other than youtube.

Make sure you have latest Flash Player you can update in your browser.

Here is a youtube video with audio

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZDS3miKQCc

You may already know all this but here is a possible problem. Between the Play / Pause button at bottom left of video box AND the Time length of video, is a Volume / Mute button (looks like speaker icon). If there is a X after the speaker icon the audio is muted, click it to un-mute ...when you put mouse pointer on speaker icon a volume slider appears beside it ...slide with mouse pointer to increase or decrease volume.

I just downloaded the latest Adobe Flash player
but my video still keeps stopping to buffer, I guess
that’s what it’s called, the constant stopping
and starting makes watching anything a real pain.
Plus it keeps saying I have internet explorer 7
and they are ending use of that. what should I go to?
?????????

I use some freeware I got off the web to download youtube videos to my HD. It works great and has a lot of various tools built into the package.

Go here and read about it and if you think it sounds like what you want then download it. I’ve been using this tool for a few years now and it’s only had a couple of times it didn’t work but they sent out updates and fixed the problem each time.
