what kind of content are you trying to view? youtubes, imovie trailers, flash games? try going to http://trailers.apple.com/ and checking for sound there. you can also try in a new user on the computer to see if it is preference related

Interesting. The trailers link posted by mvimp works for me, but other websites I still cannot get any sound from.
I've been trying the BBC website, which always worked before, but nothing now!

Are you the original poster in this thread, but posting under a different user i.d.?
How big is the hard drive and how much space remains available on it?
How much RAM is installed?
The problem is highly unusual because usually when there is a problem with sound, it's universal (across all apps, not just the browser). And this is even more strange than that, where it works on some sites and not others.
Could you please give us a link to a web page where the sound isn't working for you?

Someone else jumped into the conversation, but with a similar issue.
Here is my example...
My computer will play this with sound: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/magnolia/melancholia/
but not this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6-P1JErdJo&feature=feedu
I think that it has something to do with preferences, but I feel like I've exhausted my options.
These are the particulars of my computer:
Machine Name: iBook G4
Machine Model: PowerBook6,5
CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.2)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 1.2 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
Memory: 512 MB

This is a really goofy idea, so excuse me if you think it's insulting. On the YouTube page, when you click on the speaker symbol next to the play triangle, is the slider for the volume set all the way to the right for maximum volume? This has happened to me a time or two, where the volume on YouTube is non-existent. Somehow, the volume got set all the way down, and it carried over then to every YouTube video. It took me a long time to figure out what had happened.

No, I wasn't the original poster, just weighing in!
My problem seems to have been cured (for now at least!) with a good old fashioned reboot.
I'll keep my eye out and come back if it reappears.
Thank you for asking.
