    why no sound from YouTube videos

    Can anyone tell me why I can no longer get any sound from You Tube videos, but Facebook videos are OK. I used to be able to get sound on You Tube if I used Internet Explorer, but not if I used Chrome as my browser.

    hey traveler!

    i had this problem about a month ago. all of a sudden i couldn't hear any music on youtube. my facebook videos were fine, too.

    so, i asked my son, my go to person for my pc probs. well, he looked at it and said the sound was muted! on the bottom black line under the video, to the left of the time length of the video and to the right of the "pause or play" button, there is a speaker icon. if the speaker has this "X" in front of it, the sound is muted. if the speaker has a "i)" in front of it, it is unmuted. just click on it to change.

    i hope this simple thing is the source of your problem. i wouldn't have noticed it.

    WE ARE BT!

      I agree with tic chick, check to make sure youtube isn't muted.
      Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
      Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
      Question: What's wrong with my account?

      Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

      It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

      Step 1 - log in
      Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
      Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
      Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
      Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

      Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

      Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
