    Win7 & IE & Flash & YouTube Mute Issue

    Play YouTube movie and it's muted.

    You unmute and everything's fine. Exit IE and the next time YouTube videos are muted again.

    Anyone else having this frustrating issue? Seeing it happen just lately and the teachers are getting uppity. The suggested fix of disabling hardware acceleration sometimes works.

    Can't find a definitive explanation of the cause.

    I've had this as well on Chrome, Firefox AND IE.

    Google know about it and are looking into it [apparently].


    Out of curiosity, is yours actually muted or just turned all the way down?

    Yeah I've had issues with this too. Some other sites where there is no flash based volume control are useless because you can barely hear it

    I would say it's a Windows problem, but I've heard Linux has it as well.

    I use Win7 + Firefox[23] at home [so no proxy to cause problems] and youtube videos load with the sound turned all the way down [not muted]

    It's JUST youtube, though. Other flash players are fine.


    Le [pre-post] EDIT: OK... I think it may be fixed. Chrome Version 30.0.1599.69 m at work is working fine now. [Just tried it on this] It wasn't working yesterday.

    Had similar issue when using high definition audio ms driver rather than the vendors one.
