Nope, It seems many other people are having a problem. So it could just be firefox.
Just checked it also doesn't work on my Internet Explorer 7

Check and see if you are able to hear sound when watching a video on youtube or google video. If you can't, then I have a fix that should solve that, and probably your entire problem.

Try the following and see if it fixes your issue:
  • Go to START-->RUN and type regedit to open the Registry Editor
  • Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
  • Now right-click on the heading Drivers32 and select NEW-->STRING VALUE.
  • Call this new String Value wavemapper.
  • Now double-click the wavemapper entry you just created and for the VALUE field, type in msacm32.drv and click OK.
  • Close the Registry Editor and try watching a video on youtube again.

Acually I have both, and Windows 2000 for some reason isn't working. When I last used 2000 sound worked fine.

I don't have 2000 installed on a machine at my house and with the blizzard conditions here in Wisconsin I won't be going into work today to check on my 2000 machine there. I will check for it on Monday and post if no one has posted a solution by then.

I have just used putfile and found out that the wmv files worked with sound, but the flash did not, I have re-installed flash player and nothing happened?
