Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.30GHz 782/100mhz.) I
have Windows 8 64 bit. I have looked up this no sound problem on googgle and tried all recommendation to no avail. My audio card is not showing it has an issue. I have tried a headset and I am unable to hear any sound. I can play any videos on my computer but no sound. I can play YouTube on Chrome (no sound) but cant play YouTube in Firefox as it errors out This just happened this week - I don't know why. I don't remember downloading anything and I did not install any new software.
When I try in IE I get an error right on the video screen stating there is an error and to click for more info. When checking the info, I've done everything it recommends.
When I try in Firefox it will play a commercial ad but when it's finished just sits idle instead of continuing with the video.
My browsers ie10 and firefox both suddenly stopped play the youtube videos online. I get the message an error has occurred. Please try again later. I have tried uninstalling the flash plugin and reinstalling it but the issue remains. I even reset and uninstalled my firefox. but still the same problem occurs.I have windows 8 operating system on my laptop and it is 64 bit. I was able to play all you tube videos before.
I have an Acer Aspire V5 laptop.It has a celeron cpu,and is a basic small laptop. I listen to video news online,and i have not installed or uninstalled any software prior to the problem of no sound in videos since it last played back video with sound.
I have tried to play the same video on firefox and internet explorer,and there was no sound,only video. The browsers are using FlashPlayer as far as I know.And the speakers (realtech are the default speakers-found in the control panel/sound.Is there another sound setting? The sound card works as skype works.
The volume link is not available on the video played in both browsers.And the mute button is available in IE but not in Firefox,but it is not muted(as I have checked). And the volume which is accessed from the bottom right hands side of windows is at max.
I have a HCL laptop with Windows 8 Pro x86 installed. Whenever I connect my headphones I don't get any sound from it. I have gone to my "Playback Devices" and selected "Show Disabled Devices" and the headphones are not listed there. What can I do to work around this problem ? I need my headphones to play sound. Should I update my audio driver? I upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8 with migrating all my settings. I am using VIA HD Audio Deck as my default sound driver.
I have been having an issue recently with my Windows 8 HP laptop where it'll just stop playing videos (whether if streamed through the internet such as you tube or if played on the actual computer as a downloaded video) or the sound for said videos just won't play. The problem can usually be temporarily fixed by restarting my computer but it gets annoying to restart my computer constantly because a video is not playing or the sound is not working so I am trying to see if there is a permanent solution. Adobe flash player is up to date and the problem has been occurring before and after I updated flash player.
My laptop produces squeaking sound whenever i play some music or video... this sound is also observed when i put the computer on a external speakers.. The hdd is recently changed.. What can be the problem..
On my desktop computer, when I try viewing youtube videos (and videos from some other sources) full screen, the toolbar across the bottom of screen in the desktop mode remains visible, blocking my view of (and use of) the player controls at bottom of the youtube player. All I can see is the seek bar moving as the video plays. If I put the toolbar in the AutoHide mode, then I can see (and use) the youtube player controls.
On my laptop with Windows 8, this problem does not exist. The entire player appears normally as if there were an "always on top" mode.
One difference is that the laptop had Windows 8 factory installed, while I installed Windows 8 over XP in my desktop. (That $39 deal offered at the beginning of the year was too good to pass up). Both computers have x64-based processors.
Computer comparisons: Laptop: Samsung; AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 2.70 GHz; 4.00 GB RAM, 64-bit OS Desktop: Homebuilt; AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 5050e; ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics (with latest driver); 2GB RAM; 32-bit OS
Neither computer has the toolbar in the AutoHide mode.
On some sites with the desktop computer, when I move the mouse pointer toward the left edge of the player, the seek bar retracts and I can't grab it to drag it to the right. I don't know the if laptop also has this problem.
Whenever I switch to 480p, 720p, or 1080p the video goes black and freezes. Happens in Chrome, Firefox, and IE. Don't have this problem in OSX or Win 7 via Bootcamp. Just bought a Lenovo with Win 8 stock.
I have installed windows 8.1 pro . when I watch YouTube videos and remain inactive for a while then screen gets dimmer and then turns off. I could understand when nothing was done then screen would go idle but the video is running and screen turns off ...isn't it frustrating? so how to keep screen alive while watching YouTube videos but it should turn off when pc is inactive(other cases when video is not playing) ..
Windows 8 IE 10 (All recent updates) Like to watch wood working videos on Youtube. No problems before today ,now they will not play. Been reading and some mention of ActiveX and Flashplayer settings. I have done now changes to any settings since all was working fine. What should I be looking at to fix ?
Download from a site, like a picture or media file (music, etc.), it downloads it fully, but it still says it is still downloading even when you can see the current state such as 40.7MB out of 40.7MB completed only certain sites do this, but others don't So something is off here, and since I got this from FB and another site or more, Firefox might be having a bug issue. I tried a resetting Firefox, but it didn't do anything. Another issue that might be Firefox-related is Youtube. In this case, the viewing history doesn't show any videos. I thought it was a site issue. It could be, but it's still the case now. Since I mentioned one issue, might as well mention this one too.
I am running a Toshiba computer with Windows 8 and Google Chrome as my default browser.
Basically, any videos from any website will load but not play, and any sounds (not necessarily just from Google Chrome) won't play either. For example, when I change the volume of my computer it does not play a tone (when it normally should). I have updated Java and Adobe Shockwave to no avail.
The problem started occurring a couple of days ago. Originally I could restart my computer and I would be fine for a while, but eventually that stopped working. I have had this computer for at least 6 months and have not had any problems with it. Also I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
The present file format of these personal videos is: .3gp. When I try to play them in Xbox video I get this error message: Can't play because the item's file format isn't supported. Check the store to see if this item is available there. 40 apps open when I did check. Which app will play this .3gp format? I can visually play them in Windows Media Player but for some reason there's no sound & it's turned up to full volume.
I installed win 8 about 2 weeks ago and i noticed something really annoying.when i play videos on 720p in chrome (desktop) they lag. Dont lag like all the time but they lag for like 1 2 secs and then they start running smooth again. I already check for drivers and i got the newest one. I tried in IE and i dont have this problem but EI sucks big time. I know that my video card is kinda old but with windows 7. I didn't had any problems with videos on youtube even on 1080p.So is there something i can do about those lags?
After upgrading to win 8, all of my videos were being played through x-box video app. I clicked one of my videos and changed the default to win media player and now this window appears when I try to open a video.
I've searched for a resolution for this everywhere but it seems like I am the only one with this issue, whenever i try to play video in a windows 8 app I get an error or the video just loads forever... however everything else about apps work just cannot play videos inside apps :
I am using Windows 8 software and want to be able to play a series of videos in a folder consecutively, so they start automatically one after the other. However I have not seen this capability in the standard Windows 8 or Office software.
When I play a video in metro ie no sound could be heard but yesterday there was (hibernation). The beginning of the problem was that I had one video opened with sound then paused it opened in new tab second video with no sound while in the first there still was.
So far i restarted the computer and reinstalled adobe flash player googled a lot and not found anything.
I was looking for a way to reinstall metro ie but that didn't work as well(no info) but even though i can uninstall it.
All at once I am not able to get sound from YouTube files on websites or YouTube. On websites I get video and sound as long the file is not a YouTube file. I have tried IE10 and Firefox and still no luck. Adobe Flash plug-in is enabled and I know the sound card is working.
I had my laptop for about a year now. The problem is after watching 3-4 videos, the sound will not work on the next file. I tried restarting and it worked! But after another 3-4 videos, there was no sound again. Another thing is when I open a music file, it works again. But the cycle just goes on.
Acer aspire v5-551g Conexant high definition audio ...
I don't want to convert my APE audio files. I want to play them directly in WMP 12 just like I could in previous versions of WMP (on XP, for example).
My WMP plays mp3 and FLACs fine. I installed something last week called Shark007 which enabled me to add APE files to the player, and indeed play them. However, it also caused WMP to crash every time an mp3 finished and the next track in the playlist was a FLAC, and vice versa. In other words, it couldn't handle switching from one type to another in the playlist and crashed. I had a hell of a game uninstalling that ... Back to before now... though.. stability.
Is there a codec or something that will enable me to drag a sound file with a .APE extension into the Play tab on the right side of WMP 12 (it doesn't even let me do that at the moment) and play the file ok ?
There was one on download.com but when I checked the last 5/6 reviews, they were terrible - had a lucky escape there. Didn't bother with it.
The only codec I currently have installed is 'Media Foundation FLAC Codec'. Windows 8 - 64 bit Running WMP 12.0.9200.16579 - 64 bit version.
While playing a video or games or any app that has sound... the sound suddenly disappears if it is too loud. At first I thought it might be the driver... so i replaced HD Audio with Conexant... but the problem still persists, which lead me to believe that it could be probably the speaker's problem.
But while tweaking around I found that if i quit the video or the game, the sound came back to normal. And also when the sound goes off,the green bar on the volume tray icon still keeps jumping up and down indicating sound output. Hence audio troubleshooter was of no use.
When i opened volume properties,playback devices (a video playing in the background where the sound had gone off),as i switched between the tabs in the dialog box (playbackrecording,sounds,communincation) the sound came back! This cannot be due to the speaker.
I have reinstalled windows8, updated drivers and everything but no effect. What to do, as i cannot see movies or play games with speaker. Also headphones and external speakers have no problem whatsoever.
Okay so I haven't gotten a proper BSOD since the computer doesn't actually power down, the screen just goes black and the speakers play a buzzing sound. It doesn't happen too often and if it does it usually seems to be within a few hours of turning the computer on (I leave it running unless I go away for a day or so). Seems to me the problem could be just about anything from the PSU to the GPU to the software.
I had a BSOD on my week old Samsung 350E7C laptop. It was a Power_Drive_State_Failure. It has since recovered but now every time I try to go on Youtube, my internet connection just stops working. No pages will load and I have to disable my Wi-Fi and re-connect. I have tried several browsers, but the same issue happens.
