Just today, my sound seems to have gone out online. I don't remember doing anything today that would have caused this, but yesterday, I installed a new webcam so my son could talk to his grandparents online. Unfortunately, today, I couldn't get any sound.
I'm currently using Firefox as my browser, but just tonight downloaded and reinstalled explorer (old version wasnt' working), and it doesn't work on there either.
I know it's not just my sound in general because I can still play songs on itunes without a problem, and when using gmail chat, I still get the notification "ping" if I'm on a different page when a message is received. Other than that I seem to get no sound online. When using my webcam to speak with a friend, she was able to hear me speaking (i guess my mic is working) but I could not hear her. Additionally, when I go to myspace, I am no longer able to hear the songs on any profiles I click to view. It's not EVERYWHERE online though because i'm able to play/hear movie trailers on the apple website.
I first tried restarting firefox, didn't work. Then I tried restarting the comp.. didn't work. Tried reinstalling my codecs, didnt' work.
At this point, I have no clue what the problem is, and why it's only online. Since it's both firefox and explorer, I'm assuming it's a codec problem, but I can't figure out what it would be.. perhaps a problem with quicktime? maybe I should reinstall it as well? Of course, it works fine on apple's movie trailer site.
Another site that I tried, that I have successfully had sound on before (if you want a laugh), is http://www.potterpuppetpals.com/sexy.swf
. This one (in addition to myspace profiles) was a good test for me, since I know what the sound is supposed to be.
If anyone has any ideas, please help! I will be very grateful!
Thanks in advance for your time and any help!!
