Hi all,

I have a new macbook (my first mac) and using Safari I do not get any sound when viewing videos on youtube.

The sound works fine with itunes and garage band.

I have tried dragging the com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist file to the trash, emptying the trash, and rebooting with no luck.

I've also searched threads without any luck there either.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Scott.

Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    I had the same problem and did Safari > Reset Safari, then quit, restarted Safari and the audio came back...not sure why though.

    I uninstalled the Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 and installed 10.0.12.36.

    Still no sound on youtube videos.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks for your help,

    Scott.

    I had the same problem. I also have SAFARI Version 3.2.1

    Jasthemusicman was right in my case. Maybe try again: *SAFARI > RESTART SAFARI*
    That should work, try again. If it still doesn't work, I can't help you

    Thanks Coen but still no luck,

    I tried Safari > Reset Safari > Quit Safari > Restart the computer.

    Still without sound on youtube videos. All other sounds work fine.

    ok - the sound works now.

    I'll fess up, I figured it out while trying to view an ac dc video. The youtube site has a volume control itself and it was set as low as it would go. All I had to do was turn the youtube volume up.

    Duh - thanks for the help I received.

    I have a Mac Mini that has the same problem. It works fine on iTunes, etc, but sound from Safari is very very faint and garbled a bit. I have a lot of amplification in my output chain, so I can barely hear it with all of it turned to ridiculous levels. I have seen other posts about starting Garageband and Audio MIDI Setup with no luck. My youTube level is all the way up, and it also does it from an mp3 file streamed from a web page. The Audio MIDI Setup screen has the little sliders in the lower right all the way down, but grayed out so that I cannot turn them up. This seems to be the way to fix it, but they are inactive.

    I also have a Firewire device hooked up (Presonus Firebox), but that will not play it either (also works with iTunes fine).

    There are a lot of instances of this on the web. What is the deal, Apple?
