Please go to adobe.com and reinstall/upgrade flash. THis will have to be done for each browser you user (firefox and IE for example). There is a new update for flash that resolves critical security vulnerabilities.

are you have any other problems playing sounds?

I do have other sound problems. I don't hear the normal window sounds. Like starting and turning on the computer.
Sound Devices. I went to Sounds and Audio Devices Properties in the control panel. I have one weird thing there. Under the Voice tab. Under Boice Playback. I can not select a Default Device. I try to click on my sound card "SoundMax Digital Audio", but when I click OK or APPLY, it goes back to "blank". Could this be my problem?

ok, now go to the control panel, sounds. Click on the audio tab.

Check our devices for each of the 3 sections. use the pull down arrow to see what your offerings are.

what web browser are you using? If your using Internet Explorer, then lets try Firefox. you will have to install the flash for firefox as it is separate from the one used for IE.

This should give us a good idea if this is a sound/hw issue or an IE/OS issue.

I'm using IE7. I was using Firefox for a little while because I thought that was the problem, but I couldn't get it to work with that either.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hijack this thread, but it seems like a lot of people are having this problem. I've been searching for answers for months and haven't found anything that works. Also having a problem downloading Quicktime....thinking this may be part of the same problem. Anyone else?

First, I highly recommend that you update/reinstall sound drivers. If this doesn't fix the issue then try this:

1)make sure the volume is turned all the way to the right. all the way to the left is "mute" This is done in the flash player itself

2)click your start button
go to run and type
services.msc
hit ok
in the services (local) pane you need to look for Adobe LM Service
start it and set to automatic


3)Go to a page with a Flash video on it.
Click on the video to activate Flash, then right click on it to bring up the Flash menu.
Click on "Settings", then click the "Advanced..." button.
This should open a new browser window with the Flash Player Settings Manager.

Look on the left side, under "Table of Contents" and "Flash Player Help", for "Global Storage Settings Panel"
Click the "Global Storage Settings Panel" link. This will load the panel on the right side in a Flash object.
You will find that the "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer" box is unchecked.
Check that box!!!

After the box is checked, it should save the setting right away, but I had a little trouble getting it to save the setting. I had to close all open Internet Explorer windows and go back and check the box several times, but finally it saved the setting. Once it did, I had audio in my embedded YouTube videos again.

4)try the suggestion listed here: http://wizkid.wordpr...dio-on-youtube/

If any of the suggestions works, please let us know which one.

For me, none of the above. I keep getting a message that I need to download Flash Player again...and again...and again. Why isn't it downloading Flash?
