Music not working

The music works when I'm using a media player, but if I go on youtube or anywhere with videos I cannot hear the sound. I re-installed java, macromedia, and my sound software, but it still doesn't work.

Can anyone help ? :whistling:

Edit: Also, odd thing, when I play by example the core media player (a media player) at the same time as a video, I can hear the sound of the video in background. And the more I raise the sound of my music, the more I can hear the sound of the video, and if the music is mute (like at the beggining or ending of a sound when you hear nothing) I can't hear anything at all from the video. I hope that helps.

lets try and deal with the first problem and perhaps the second problem you can be a more helpfull. because if im reading that correctly,the louder you turn the volume up the louder the music plays and if you mute it you dont hear anything which, if thats the case, there isnt anything wrong. but lets see if we can figure out the first problem first :whistling: first make sure that internet connection sharing is turned off.then look in your tool option performance settings if wmp is reading a wrong speed setting the wmp server will try an thin out the stream comming into your computer causing lack of video (its only trying to help out). manually specifying the connection speed will prevent this from happening accidently :blink:. its also a possibility you might be missing a codec

Hi Rawrr,

Try the following and see if it solves your no sound problem:
  • 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.
