    Exclamation youtube.com isn't giving me sound, just video.


    For some reason when I got to youtube. com, Im only getting video, but no sound. I don't know if it would be the plugins because i downloaded the newest flash plugins and installed them, but still no sound. Any way to fix this? I am using pclinuxos with firefox 1.5.0.1.

    Question

    Are you using ALSA or OSS audio driver?

    Perhaps you forgot to adjust the sound setting at alsamixer / other mixer?

    Maybe check what 'lsof /dev/dsp' tells you. There might be an APP blocking the OSS device.

    I am having exactly same problem here.. I was viewing some video at YouTube, and tried to adjust volume and it disabled all sound from YouTube... nothing I have tried thus far (reinstalling flashplayer, deleting browser cache etc.) hasn't helped.

    It occured me, that maybe youtube has started to use newer Flash version with their videos?

    What distribution are you running?--Edit just saw pclinuxos
    Also check to make sure in your kernel or via lsmod that you have all the appropriate sound modules running.
    Then try to run alsamixer in a console and see if you need to unmute everything.
    Some apps like gAIM don't play nice with sound services.
    If you use Gentoo I know there's a lot of really nice howto's on the gentoo-wiki site.

    If you use ubuntu (may work in other distros) and have this problem try this

    ln -s /tmp/.esd-1000 /tmp/.esd

    Just found this in ubuntuforums.org

    That'll work only if you use the Enlightened Sound Daemon, which comes on most gnome based distributions, some people may use the KDE based sound daemon arts...Which I believe pclinuxos uses.

    Heh, a day or two ago, this problem suddenly occured to me. Not only the volumebar, but also the screen size buttons disappeared for a reason unknown to me. Strange enough, switching browsers made no help! So now I'm getting on the other side of this problem

    P.S. I managed to fix it by downloading and installing the latest version of Flash Player directly from the Macromedia website.
