    Sound not playing on any video's in google chrome


    I have looked all over the internet and cannot find a solution to this, cleared cache/history/etc, re-installed chrome (twice) and still the sound does not work and it's getting kind of annoying. It works fine in IE but not Chrome, I was wondering if anyone here has had this problem and knows a solution. Thanks!

    Maybe worth looking at this if you haven't already come across it - Google Groups

    There are a fair few different solutions mentioned.

    Also come across this too
    Go to: Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Communications Tab, The setting says "When windows detects communications activity". I was messing with settings here. I set it from "Reduce the volume of other sounds by 80%",to "Do nothing". This is what killed the sound in all online embedded audio.
    Hope this helps.
