    My PC can't play audio from Flash videos on YouTube. The video plays fine.

    I've tried uninstalling Flash and deleting its Macromed folder from C:\Windows and reinstalling Flash, but the audio still doesn't play.

    The volume slider on the YouTube video window always sets itself to the lowest volume level, and increasing it doesn't bring sound either.

    How can I fix this? And does anyone know any other Flash-based video sites to test on?

    Do you have any external usb devices plugged into your computer other than mouse/keyboard?

    That can cause automatic muting of your sound levels.

    And is it only happening with youtube?

    .

    Also, try a different browser. (Firefox, Opera, IE, etc)

    Tried it in Firefox, it installed the plugin and it worked. So I reinstalled Flash AGAIN and then it worked in IE7. Thanks. Working now.
