No audio on YouTube videos

Suddenly there is no sound on any YouTube video I try to play. Other online videos are fine, whether an alternative to YouTube such as Vimeo or Daily Motion, or media sites.

There is the little x next to the speaker icon at the bottom left of each YouTube, indicating that the sound is switched off. Of course I've clicked on it, but nothing happens, and have also rebooted after updating my Flash.

Bizarre...

I'm on a recent MacBook.

Namaste,

lagatta,

Have you checked Antivirus and Firewall software to see if its blocking third-party Flash content?

— Does it get unmuted when you click on the [x] icon?

Open the sound control panel and check that you have the right audio output device selected. Could be muted there.

If lagatta hasn't mentioned it again since October, I'm willing to bet the problem got solved.
