How to fix YouTube sound problem

“I have no sound on Firefox or chrome on any YouTube videos. When I was using chrome the sound stopped working, so I used Firefox and it worked at first, but then the sound was removed on that too. I thought that maybe the sound would work on chrome again, but it didn't. Is anyone else having the same YouTube no sound problem?”

Possible Reasons and Solutions for YouTube No Sound

1. The sound is turned off.

Check if any sound functions have been activated on the computer. If not, to ensure that you can hear YouTube video, try the following:

(2). Modulate the YouTube built-in voice controller at the bottom right of the video player.
(3). Make sure that other video players such as VLC, KMPlayer, Quicktime, Real Player or Windows Media player have been volumed up, as this might affect the YouTube.
(4). Shut down and restart the computer after the operations.


2. Hardware failure, sound card malfunction, or sound card driver problem.

Please ensure you have a sound card in your machine, and you've installed sound card driver. In order to test if they’re working properly, play other audio or video.
