Hello.
I've recently 'played' with my codec library (installing and uninstalling stuff, not playing with configurations), and I managed to screw up the audio on my computer so it only works in some software...

Mp3s, AVIs, MPEGs hears fine on Windows Media Player.
MOVs hears fine on Quicktime.
Video games hears fine.

But,
AVIs and MPEGs have no sound when played in VirtualDUB (worked before)
No sound from Real files on Media Player Classic.
No sound from Flash files (SWFs and FLVs, in Flash Player and inside websites)
and no sound in the driver's (configuration software) sound test.

Plus, (quite random, but...) 'BrainWave Generator' which I tried to use today says it can't find any sound card installed, although I've checked, and it's reads out fine in any diagnostic tool. [not sure it has to do with that, since I installed that after the audio went numb, but maybe it's a hint... :thumbsup: ]

I've tried uninstalling any codec I installed.
tried reinstalling what I had before.
tried to download and reinstall my sound card drivers.
tried rolling back windows media player from the v11 beta to v10.
tried reinstalling flash player plugin and Real Alternative.
[looked in the volume control :flowers: ]

and... well... no change.

I'd appreciate help.
I really miss YouTube :trumpet:

Thanks in advance,
efish.

It sounds like conflicting codecs... hmm, ok this step involves registry so don't do it unless your really comfortable...

open registry editor by going to Start menu, Run, typing regedit and then Enter. After that, in the registry editor, walk yourself through the tree in the left pane, till you reach

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

And then on the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter "wavemapper" (without quotes of course), ENTER, type "msacm32.drv", ENTER.

Close the editor. No need to restart. Video on Google and YouTube should work fine now.

if not... i'll look into it more
