I've been having this problem that despite the volume being up on the computer and speakers, no audio will play from a website. I.E. myspace profiles, youtube or any video site.

Is there something wrong with my browsers (I've tried both Internet Explorer and Firefox)

Please advise.

The first thing to check is whether your Windows is fully up to date, including both browsers.

Second, you need to check if your Flash plugin is working properly, which means going to the Adobe website to check.

When you've done that, report back with how things are behaving

Good luck

Have you tried talking to your ISP? You need to find out if they're possibly limiting the amount of data coming from such sites.

If they're innocent of doing something like that, then I must admit that it's got me quite stumped. I've never heard of a problem like that. How does your computer cope with playing audio locally, i.e. when you play any of your movies or music collection?

Streaming divx works but nothing else does. Local audio works fine

Try going to the ffdshow website and download their codec pack. Install it and try again. I'm suspecting that this has something to do with corrupt codecs, so we need to test all options.
