    Default Chrome Flash - no sound

    So yeah, started my moms laptop from scratch...used a distribution of windows 7 that had some ehm...bundled came with Chrome and a bunch of other stuff I already used to make it simple for myself. Got my network printer all installed, drivers fixed, windows activated, extensions re-found, etc etc but Chrome won't play sound for flash videos.

    Yes my sound is on, yes there is indeed sound in VLC and in Firefox (which I downloaded to test). No, my sound driver isn't outdated or missing, no Chrome doesn't need to update. Yes I can see VIDEO in Chrome, just no sound.

    I've looked around the internet without much help. Any ideas? I'll give 'em a try. Since flash seems to be integrated with Chrome I can't figure out how to uninstall and reinstall it to see if that helps.

    did you check the windows volume mixer? it has separate volume bars for flash and stuff. sometimes mine likes to turn itself down.
    the future is bleak, uncertain, beautiful
    tomorrow they might come and arrest us all
    only if you listen closely can you hear the machines
    beneath the side walk whispering
    the machines beneath the side walk are
    always whispering
    strive to listen close
    please, try to be free
    don't be afraid
    the end of the world will never come

    Even if the .dll name is different, only one of them should be active. Mess around with disabling them and it should work if you get the right .dll.
