Hey guys

My computer has decided to play games with me and its not playing sound off any streaming media off websites..
whether its youtube or myspace you name it... no sound is heard..
videos play but no sound is heard. The weird thing is that when i play music off itunes it works.. its just sound coming from websites..

any help would be appreciated

Have you installed any video codecs lately? XViD, DiVX, etc. You could have some sort of conflict there. I think the program "G-Spot" (no kidding on the name!) can help you identify a conflict if there is one, and help you resolve it, but it's been a while since I've looked at it. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

The embedded videos on Myspace and Youtube are streamed via Adobe Flash. Try reinstalling/upgrading the plug-in
