    NO sound from Itunes, VLC player etc.


    Whenever I listen to music on itunes, there is no audio, I thought it was an itunes problem, but it also happens to VLC player. I can watch the video but there is no sound. However, there is audio for youtube and my browser.

    I tried to install realtek but it doesn't help, also it says that my dolby home theathre drive is missing.

    any help?

    bump . this is really annoying, like itunes and vlc player is the only software I used that doesn't have sound.
    I just watched a movie with windows movie maker, and it worked perfect, but I can't watch it on vlc

    Fill in your system specs using Speccy, and then update all drivers for your system, including sound card.

    EDIT:No sound in Windows

    I can't install this driver, whenever I do, the device manager is telling me that "windows has determined my driver is up to date"

    Still doesn't work. I find that it's itunes, vlc, and the music app from the windows store
    and I am just wondering what's the different between realtek and the driver I have right now?
