Solution to Fix Youtube or Other Embedded Flash Video No Sound in External Websites

Home»Software»Multimedia (Video, Music & Image)»Solution to Fix Youtube or Other Embedded Flash Video No Sound in External Websites
A video plays fine and properly when played directly in originating video sharing and hosting sites YouTube, MetaCafe, Google Video, CNet Videos, DailyMotion, iFilm, and Revver themselves, complete with the sound heard nicely. However, the audio is lost and no sound is heard when the Flash video is played on another third party or external sites or blogs that embedded these YouTube and other sites’ videos, although the video still moving. The symptom happens when users computers is using Flash 8 or 9, and uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash Player won’t help.

Here is a simple solution to fix the problem that embedded flash video from YouTube, Google Video, Daily Motion, Revver, iFilm and Metacafe on third party websites or blogs failed to play sound and audio.

  1. Visit a web page with a Flash video embedded on the page.
  2. Click on the Flash video to activate the Flash plugin (only on Flash plugin installed Windows XP SP2 or newer), then right click on video to display the Flash properties menu.

    Adobe Flash Settings

  3. Click on Settings on contextual menu, then click the Advanced… button.

    Adobe Flash Advanced Settings

  4. A new web page window will launch loading Adobe – Flash Player – Manager. On the left pane, click on Global Storage Settings Panel link under “Flash Player Help Settings Manager” sub-section under “Table of Contents” section.
  5. A Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager applet will load on the right pane as a Flash object. Select (tick) the Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer checkbox so that it’s checked. The settings should be auto-save, if the setting is not saved, try to close all Internet Explorer or Firefox web browser windows and launch the Flash Manager to set the option again.

    Flash Global Storage Settings

  6. Try to play Flash video. The sound should be played properly.

If the above guide does not solve the problem that video clips from YouTube, VideoSift, Break, Google Videos, Dailymotion, Yahoo, and other video sharing websites play no sound on external sites while audio output fine when viewing the video on video hosting sites itself. Another possible cause is that the Flash contents which is cached get corrupted or damaged, preventing audio streaming from working correctly (Most video sharing sites use Flash video technology to deliver video and audio streaming). To solve this possible corruption, try to use the following hack.

  1. Download and install CCleaner, a freeware system optimization and privacy tool that able to remove unused files from system, and clean traces of online activities.
  2. Run CCcleaner, uncheck and unselect everything that is selected in both Windows and Applications tabs for Cleaner function, except the option of Macromedia Flash Player, located under “Multimedia” branch in “Applications” tab. Ensure that all other options are unselected, or else there may be unforeseen sequences including unable to boot your computer.

    CCleaner

  3. Click on Analyze button, and when finished, click on Run Cleaner button when done. This will clean and clear out the old downloaded Flash caches.
  4. Try to load the embedded videos again, the sound should output fine now.

    Of all the googled suggestions “Allow third-party Flash content" worked for me!

    I'm delighted. Thanks.

  • The "allow third-party flash content" worked for me too.. However, along with getting the sound to work, at the end of my video I also got every other thumbnail view that's in the same catagory qued up for play on my page….Unacceptable..Since my video is an introduction to another web video from another website, and I am not interested in promoting everyone else's biz op….

    Is there some way to alter the embed code from YouTube so that it does not load up the extra content?

    Thanks,

  • qws

    hi.. i do all the proses w/ ccl but it doesnt work

  • Caerthose

    I also haven't fixed this problem yet and i've done everything. I've done what's listed above, both parts of it. I have redownloaded flash 9.whatever and such. I have even adjusted my registry with the wavemapper thing that other people have said to try. I've done everything i've found so far and nothing has worked. What has been happening to me is this: Video files on my computer work fine. What doesn't work is flash videos on the net via youtube/whatever. I see the video and i do have a slight bit of volume. I have to turn my speakers to max and jam the thing next to my ear and i can barely hear it. ALL sound settings for youtube and my own speakers and the sound on my computer are maxxed, it is not just me failing to check something stupid like that. I am totally lost as to what is wrong….

  • jack

    what happens when flash won't allow me to check the box??? it's there but when I try to check it nothing happens. and when I move the slider it doesn't save neither???

  • dave

    flash wont allow me to check the box either and slider doesn't save either. Did anyone figure this out?

  • MF

    I GIVE UP

  • Joe

    i cant check the box either :/

    also when i run ccleaner with flash checked it doesnt remove any files

  • Marvin

    If you cant check the box on the site for flash settings it probably means your flash player folder is corrupt. To fix this go to your local disk (C:, E: whatever u use) then go to Documents and Settings, choose your user folder, then go to Application Data folder ( you will need to have view hidden files/folders on in the folder options, to change this go to Tools, Folder Options, View and make sure you check Show Hidden Files and Folders) once your in the Application Date folder go to the Macromedia folder, there you should see a Flash Player folder, try to delete it, it will probably say you cannot delete it because its corrupt. So what you will have to do is rename it to say "Flash Player Corrupt" or "Flash Player 2" whatever u want. Now go to the Flash Player settings website and you should beable to check the boxes now (or they should already be checked).

    I recommend that you delete the corrupt folder later aswell with a program like Unlocker or KillBox (just search in google for them or for deleting corrupt files)

  • dave

    wtf?i did everything and it still wont work.I downloaded ccleaner and the macromedia flash player option was not there.Can somebody PLEASE HELP ME???

  • fiona

    I installed flash player 9 then flash player 8 then I got the sound back

  • haruna

    I was on the brink of giving up too. Until I went to http://www.free-codecs.com and downloaded this very nice program called UltraGet Video Downloader. With this very simple program, you just copy the link of the video you want to watch, and paste it into the program, then it downloads the video from the site and you can watch it normally. Thanks to this wonderful program, I can watch YouTube and other embedded videos again, and actually hear what is going on.

  • dil

    okay here is what you do

    UNINSTALL ALL FLASH PLAYERS (Control Panel>>Add Remove Progrems>> Uninstall Adobe Flash Player Active X and Plugin

    go to google and search for: FLASH PLAYER 8

    install that

    then open Internet Explorer/Firefox: try a video, you will have sound

  • Shanimal

    If someone can confirm this… I think the site gdata.youtube.com may have reached its limit? My settings were already set correctly for Storage, but I found deleting the sites from "Website Storage Settings" fixed it for me.

  • James

    Err, just went through the entire downloading installing running of that Regcure to find I have to buy it! I dont want my reg fixed, last time I done anything like that I lost a load of appache server settings! I am NOT buying it because Ill never use it again. Ive tried everything else suggested but Im going to try what Shanimal said about the "website storage settings" and see if this solves the problem. I can here sound on every know flash movie known to man :p except my version of chromeless player (googles example of it works fine) I know its not code issue as my other PC works fine! "Aghh" I think is the best expression right now! :

    THIS WORKS!! Sorted. Cool

    THANKS Shanimal

  • Shanimal

    James, thanks.

    I was also wondering if indeed gdata had reached its limit. Can someone confirm that gdata is 100k of 100k (or whatever the limit may be?) I cant force the issue, because I cleared the sites without first checking gdata's usage.

  • James

    Sorry, didnt check before I deleted. If it happends again, Ill write here.

    Im doing alot of work with vid so Im sure it will happen some time soon.

    Thanks again, I let YouTube know of this link and I told them about your post. I wouldnt put too much hope in YouTube reading it as Im still waiting for a question about terms of use back in January 2008.

    Thanks again Shanimal

    i ma having the same problem. I was not able to find the specified path. i am thinking because the solution mentioned is for vista and not for xp which i am having. please correct me if i am wrong . also if anybody knows the solution in a XP along these line please do post it.

    appreciate your help

  • Shanimal

    A member of our flash team found the problem. It has to do with mute vs. volume=0. Clearing the cookies clears the state of the cookies that mantain these values. We added some code to clear the states manually and havent had a word off the problem since.

  • Joel

    I've been having this problem the last few weeks. I just tried both things you suggested, going to the site and running CCleaner. Still no sound.

    I have XP, but I do have a program installed that gives my whole computer the Vista skins for windows and the taskbar and everything.

    Contact me via my email if you have any more suggestions, because this problem is quite aggravating. I frequent quite a few sites that use flash and I would love to have SOUND again!!!!!

  • Shanimal

    manishi, come back to this site and look for alink that says "Show All", click that and some really good advice (from me) will help you get your sound back 🙂 Ultimately learn how to clear your "flash cookies" (note the word "flash" in "flash cookies") and it will very likely resolve your issues.

  • Dom

    I had this problem (no sound) with a new pc I was preparing, turns out I plugged the sound in the wrong sound slot in the motherboard. Sounds noobish, but the fact is the speakers worked fine with mp3s. I ended up plugging the speakers in a 7.1 slot ( I guess). So you might wanna check if you don't have your speakers in the wrong slot. (Green obv)

  • Theresa

    I had the same problem, no sound on youtube and a few other sites, tried all these suggestions, no luck. After scouring the net, I found this:

    I downloaded the standard codec package and it worked perfectly! Try it, can't hurt, and I couldn't believe after 4 weeks of no sound on youtube it worked GREAT!

    Flash No Sound WaveMapper Solution

    1. Launch Registry Editor by typing regedit at Run command.

    2. Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDrivers32

    3. On the right pane, and check for existance of “wavemapper” registry subkey, the mail culprit causing Flash no sound. If not found, create a new String value named “wavemapper”, and give the entry value “msacm32.drv”.

    If wavemapper entry is already existed, ensure that its value data is “msacm32.drv”.

    Also ensure and verify that the msacm32.drv driver file is existing in C:WindowsSystem32 folder. If the file is missing in that location, search for other copy of msacm32.drv in the computer, or copy that file from another system.

    I had no sound on YouTube for two days…..it drove me nuts!!!! I downloaded all of the requirements….to no avail…..still no sound.

    Today I LOOKED AT MY OWN SOUND ON THE YOUTUBE, AND IT WAS ALL THE WAY DOWN. I PULLED IT (the volume in youtube) UP, AND SURE ENOUGH, IT WORKED….

    The sound worked all this time,,,I had not clue why the sound volume was down…..but this was the only thing that was wrong, in my case….I sympathys with those who cannot have sound…when the video is so clear…

  • Aaron

    I experience this problem as well. What finally solved it for me was to delete the preferences for Macromedia – not sure how you go about doing this in the windows world (maybe the CCleaner) in the Mac world it is simple.

    *user*/library/preferences/macromedia

    I deleted the entire folder. Restarted my browsers.

    Bingo! Audio is back. It was affecting Firefox as well – problem solved there as well.

  • redlantern

    Let me describe what I did to fix the lost FLash Player's audio. Before finding the solution, I had tried every trick in the book and those offered on the forums to no avail:

    – wavemapper"="msacm32.drv (yes, I had it in my registry)

    -"Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer” checkbox was checked by default

    – Cleaned out the old downloaded caches in Flash by running CCLEANER

    – Uninstalled FLASH 10 and reinstalled it (several times)

    Nothing worked! Then by chance while looking in the registry and double-checking each value against the DLL and DRV files in SYSTEM32, I saw that I missed WMDAUD.DRV in the SYSTEM32 folder (which explained why I kept hearing my computer beep through its own internal sound device rather through the speakers via Windows wave sound). I didn't know why the WMDAUD.DRV was deleted though it was protected. Anyway, I copied it back, rebooted my system and the FLASH audio came back on every Webcast.

  • diego

    Excuse me, REdlandter….but how I can get back the WMDAUD.DRV

    and reisntall it? Im so frustrated, nothing works for me….hope this can give me my sound back.

    thanx

    1. Flash stores its files in a temporary files folder. A corrupt download can cause the sound problems.

    Delete the following folders:
    C:Documents and Settings%UserName%Application DataAdobeFlash Player
    C:Documents and Settings%UserName%Application DataMacromediaFlash Player

    2. Empty your temporary internet files.

    Internet Explorer: Tools -> Internet Options
    Firefox: Tools -> Clear Private Data
    Opera: Tools -> Delete Private Data

    3. Empty your temporary files folder.

    Use this command to empty your temporary files folder:
    Start -> Run -> RMDIR /S /Q "%TEMP%"

    4. Install the latest version of the Flash plugin. You can download it HERE. If you have problems upgrading the plugin, then uninstall your existing version first with this tool. Close your browser(s) before you run the uninstall tool.

    5. Run the K-Lite Codec Tweak Tool. Near the top you should see an option to fix the sound (Midi, WaveOut). Select that and press Next. If the option is grayed out, then that particular registry fix is not needed. This fix will restore a missing "wavemapper" registry key.

    6. Go to the Flash Player Settings Manager website. Click HERE.
    Check the box called "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer."

    7. Go to the Flash Player Settings Manager website. Click HERE.
    Click on the button to remove the data that the Flash plugins has stored for websites that you have visited.

    8. Check if your sound device settings are correct:
    Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices -> Audio

    9. If you have QuickTime installed, then go to the QuickTime control panel. On the Audio tab, set "Default Music Synthesizer" to "General MIDI".
    On the Advanced tab, disable "Enable playback of Adobe Flash tracks".
    On the browser tab, click on "MIME Settings". Under "Miscellaneous", make sure "Flash media" is unchecked.

    10. Check if the file msacm32.drv is present in the C:Windowssystem32 folder. If not, copy it from another PC (that has the same version of Windows) and place the file in the system32 folder. If you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, then the file should be present in the C:WindowsSysWOW64 folder.

    11. If you are also having sound problems with other applications, then re-installing your audio drivers might solve the problem.

    • Mihai

      great, thanks milind!

      This worked for me:

      Firefox / clean recent history AND

      Delete the following folders:
      C:Documents and Settings%UserName%Application DataAdobeFlash Player
      C:Documents and Settings%UserName%Application DataMacromediaFlash Player

      (the folder may be “hidden” so you should check “show hidden folders and files”).

      AND
      installed last version from flash player, restarted firefox and that was it.

  • Milind

    Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices
    There are 5 tabs: Volume, Sounds, Audio, Voice, Hardware. At this stage, the Volume tab was completely inaccessible, everything was darkened. This is because I had the wrong sound device selected!
    Sound tab -> Make sure your working sound card is selected for the default device under Sound Playback and Sound Recording.
    Audio tab -> Sound Playback:
    Click Volume -> Properties -> Mixer Device = Your Sound Card (in my case SB Live! Wave device) and show the following volume controls for: Play Control, Wave, MIDI, CD Audio, Microphone (If you have one), & PC Speaker. (Make sure these are all checked.)
    The first control will be Play Control, ensure that this MUTE ALL button is NOT checked. The rest of the controls should also be unchecked and the volume should be turned up to maximum.
    Close the control center, go back to Sounds and Audio Devices and click the Volume tab. The options on this tab should now be enabled after selecting the correct sound card. Make sure the mute button is not selected, and you can choose whether or not to have the volume icon in your taskbar here. Click Speaker Volume and ensure they are all the way up, and then back to Volume Tab and click advanced, and make sure your speaker setup is selected correctly or else no sound will work. If you didn't have problems with sound other than youtube before this, don't change anything! If you don't know which speaker setup you have, click desktop stereo speakers. (Or laptop mono speaker if you are on a laptop. Or Monitor stereo speakers if the speakers are attached to your monitor.)

  • Jared V

    redlantern: great info. I had the same problem as you. One thing that I had to do on top of your great instructions was to right click the "Drivers32" folder, go to Permissions, and make sure everything was set to "Allow", make sure nothing was denied. My "Special Permissions" was set to "Deny", so where it says For special permissions or advanced click advanced "Advanced" I had 2 items set to deny. Under the Permissions tab, select the denied item, hit the Edit button, make sure This Key and Subkeys is selected in the drop down menu. Place a check mark in each item. (when you checkmark Full Control, the rest of the checkmarks may already show), then hit OK. Do this for each denied item. Hit OK on the Permissions for Drivers32 window, close the registry window. You do not have to restart windows.. Worked great for me.

    Cheers and good luck!!.

  • Jeff

    samppa!!!!!! You do ROCK! I've been working on this for a month. It started after I cleaned the Personal Shield Pro virus off of my laptop (which was an ordeal in itself). I think the virus changed the permissions that you mentioned to deny. Or maybe it was Ccleaner trying to do it's thing and some registry settings got hosed…but whatever…my internet sound is back THANKS TO YOU!

  • Alex O

    The issue on my machine was strictly due to a loss of full permissions to the following key –

    HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionDrivers32

    I had to right click and check the advanced permissions. Some has been set to exclusively deny. After unchecking the Deny flags, the sub keys were displayed and the sound came back to the browsers immediately.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Both the IE (ActiveX) version and the FireFox/etc. plug-in had the same problem. Uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player 11.0.1.152 didn’t fix it. Reverting to an earlier (version 9) edition of Flash Player didn’t work. System Restore didn’t work. Updating audio drivers didn’t work. Fiddling with Global Storage Settings didn’t work. Installing the K-Lite Codec pack didn’t work. Nothing suggested on any Adobe site worked.

    What worked was your suggestion to use ccleaner to clear the Flash Player cache. (I also cleared the browser caches at the same time.)

    THANK YOU!!

    Thank you so much. this was driving me crazy as i had tried many other suggestions with no succcess and the CCleaner suggestion worked

  • It was good and it worked with my system.

  • Okay – I’m probably too old for any of youse guys – but I LOVE you. Have been trying to fix this for two days. Everything I read to do was wrong. I installed & uninstalled all relevant files. I even deleted McAffee to see if that worked. Nothing fixed the problem. I did everything that Dave Burton did.

    What DID work was: clearing the internet cache files with CC Cleaner. Easy Peasy. Took like ten seconds & everything was working again.

    THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!

    After saving the file, go to START > RUN > and type ‘regedit’ and then click OK
    In the registry, select FILE > IMPORT and select the “missing.reg” file from your desktop
    You should get a confirmation that it was imported successfully.

    This is an instant fix … your speakers should now work for web sounds, no reboot required.

    while i watch online the you tube videos are working properly onli when i download it using xilisoft youtube downloader and view it in vlc player the audio is not working the videos are
    fine….. will u pls help me wit tis problm?

    • amyinnh

      Right click on a flash video. Go into the global settings and delete what it’s stored locally from various *multitudes* of sites. Don’t know if this gets overloaded or ends up corrupted but get rid of all the local stored info from sites. Then reload your page with the flash you want to watch. Should run.

    Had this problem and by sheer luck i found the solution. If you’re on PC anyway, don’t know if this works for mac. Anyway, look onto bottom right hand corner on lower bar. Or just look for the speakers adjusters; i.e. volume. click on it and then click on mixer, and choose the one that correlates to your browser. It should be muted, unmute it! and there you go!
