Skip to comments.TECH HELP!!! When I play some YouTube videos there in NO sound just video...
Posted on 06/08/2012 2:18:38 PM PDT by US Navy Vet
I have tried EVERYTHING!
Maybe they don’t have any. Some don’t....................
Did you turn the volume up?
I think your doing it wrong.
Drink some Scotch...you won’t care.
Do you have any sample links anyone else could test?
Are you logged on?
check the connection for your speakers and make sure that they are not on mute
Heck, for that matter, who needs YouTube? Just have the Scotch.
That's perfectly normal!
Does “everything” include a restart? That usually works for me, when I run into baffling problems like that.
You aren’t listening hard enough.
That's called outsmarting them at their own game!
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.
When that happens at my house, it means the Viking kittehs have stepped on the button on the power strip behind my desk.
Will the 23-bit version run on my 32-bit system?
Are you logged in?
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.
Exactly my point. :)
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. ;-) ;-) ;-)
Another YouTube question....
When i attempt to download a video, I get an error message of “Unable to Download”
Same error message in IE or Chrome.
It was downloading fine....then it wasn’t.
Any help would be appreciated.
THAT’S the first thing I would’ve suggested....give us one your not getting sound on...
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
Does anyone have guidance on how to save a youtube video to your hard-drive?
How does this compare to RealPlayer which I have been using?
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.
I was using RealPlayer which was doing fine...until recently when I began getting “Unable to Download” error.
Sure - with nine bits left over.
That's over a dollar!
*schuggs*....I don’t download vids from YT....I save to my account but don’t save them on my puter
I have the same problem on a Vista system, it will work fine for a while then suddenly no audio. And if the computer upgrades, that always knocks it out till I restart.Good Luck
..is your real player up to date?
What I do is make this into a bookmark in the bookmarks bar.
Then visit the youtube video you want, and choose the bookmark.
you have the latest edition of ADOBE?...the flash player?
Yes, updated earlier this week to be sure I had current version.
That damn OwlGore - always screwing up the internet thang!
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....
....is the particular video still available on YT?....sometimes they get dropped by them
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
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.
..when was the last time Google messed with you about updating your profile?...the last time it had me all screwed up...
Danged-ol Adobe flash!
Lyle Lovett - still there
I appreciate your help!
it’s goofy stuff....sometimes I just go do something else....and it’s fine when I get back to it.......
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?
Thanks for your help - I’ll keep playing with it.
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.
