For a few months now when I go to watch a video on youtube or open something in vlc it will play as normal showing volume is up but i won't get any sound for ~30 seconds then it will play. For sound in vlc it only won't play if its the first sound i wan't to play after booting, however for sound in chrome it happens even after i've played something with no sound for that 30 seconds. i notice it more frequently in embeded videos but it happens for anything. refreshing usually works but sometimes i have to refresh 3-5 times before it works again. i've double checked my sound device options and they're correct(since it still plays normal sometimes) and updated my drivers. I've also run scans for malware as well as ccleaner and like. i updated chrome java, and installed flash player interdependently. i know it seems like a small issue but it's driving me crazy and i cant figure out the cause of it. i can post specs and such but i think its software related so ill hold off on that for now. any help is greatly appreciated.
