Hi,

I have a html5 chat where you can send mp3 sounds so everyone else in the room can hear them but not if you have firefox. Why is that? It works fine on chrome and every other browser.

Thank you.

I can no longer hear sound from Youtube videos. Vimeo.com still makes sound. So does Chrome on Youtube and media playback from my local sound files. I have tried restarting my computer and also restarting Firefox without add-ons. These did not help. The Youtube sound meter (in the bottom of videos) is set to max.

I'm having problems with Firefox suddenly refusing to play audio. Here's the usual scenario:

- I start my computer, open Firefox, go to YouTube and can normally watch the videos with the sound working just fine.

- After a while the sound stops working. I think it usually happens after I close down Firefox and start it again, but I'm not 100% sure if that is the case. It never just stops in the middle of me watching a video. When it stops working I can hear a strange sound when the sound should start playing. Like it plays for an fraction of a second and then stops. The same happens if I want to jump forward to the middle of the video that I want to watch.

- When the audio stops working in Firefox it still works everywhere else. I can open MS Edge and the audio still plays just fine there. The same with regular windows applications like Spotify.

- If I restart the computer it works again.

Things I have tried until now:

- Opened Firefox in safe mode.

- Refreshed Firefox.

- Switched back to the default theme.

- Created a new Firefox profile using "firefox.exe -P" command.

- Restarted the audio device (using "net stop AudioSrv" and "net start AudioSrv").

- Disabled and re enabled my audio device from Device Manager.

- Cleared Firefox Cache.

- I checked the playback device setup and Firefox is not muted anywhere, I also increase the volume to 100% but it didn't help.

- Reinstalled Firefox.

None of the above worked.

I saw that there is some issue with the newest version of windows (on the insider ring), but I'm on regular branch, my Windows version is 16299.

The fact that it works for some time makes me think that it's not due to codecs or something like that.

Any ideas?

Firefox will not play any type of audio. There's no indication of audio being played in Firefox in the soundmixer either. Audio works perfectly fine in all other applications. Steps I've already taken to try and solve the issue:

- Reinstall audio drivers - Remove cache, cookies and browser history - Refresh Firefox (remove addons / reset settings) - Reinstall Firefox - Rebooting system in between those steps

I've made sure my audio devise is set as default obviously.

Since upgrading to Windows 10, when downloading a video from youtube or any other site, video works but there is no audio. I have updated all the extensions, restarted in safe mode, made sure quicktime, realplayer, flash were enabled and can't get any sound. Opera and Edge work fine. What to do other than switching to Opera?

I asked this question 2 years ago. It's closed so I have to ask again. Firefox makes no sound. I have a YouTube video playing, for example, and I can see the video, but there's no sound. YouTube's unmuted, the volume is all the way up. If I download the video I can play it with mplayer and hear the sound. I can watch a DVD with xine and hear the sound. I can play an audio file at the same time and hear the sound. I've encountered some videos I can't download so I can't hear them - I have to go to the library to use their computers.

I see 'failed to init cubeb... AudioStream.cpp line 387' and 'OnMediaSinkAudioError... MediaDecoderStateMachine.cpp, line 3755'

if those mean anything.

It plays fine with MS Edge. Why? Sound on YouTube videos is OK. And on this Google Drive posting, the video never loads: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByxWdtlW-jlMcmF2U0JzV2Nqdms/view

Again, the link opens up fine with Edge. Why cannot Firefox work in these two instances?

So, I'll be using Firefox, audio will work fine at first, then later I'll play a video, whether it be Youtube, Facebook, etc, and no matter the site or format of the video, the audio will just not play. Video plays fine, but there is no audio output. Nothing is muted, everything is up to date. The only fix I've found is restarting the program, but then the same issue occurs later, and I'll have to restart the program once more.

All my plugins and drivers are up to date, Windows is up to date, as is Firefox. I've tried reinstalling Firefox, disabling extensions, and all the basic troubleshooting I could think of (which, considering that I do this kind of stuff for a living, is a lot). Nothing fixes the issue.

I'm using FireFox Quantum 58.0.2 (64-bit), and Windows 7 Pro SP1.

Audio is not playing over remote desktop. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and have the latest version. The same videos will play on chrome with audio working correctly. Firefox shows up in the volume mixer and is turned all the way up. The issue occurs in safe mode as well.

I was clicking on YouTube links on a forum and everything was working fine. Suddenly, I re-clicked on one of the links and... no sound. I've:

-Clicked on the other links that had just been working... no sound. -Tried Vimeo... no sound. -Tried Internet Explorer and files from my PC and I get sound. -I downloaded the Flashplayer for YouTube and tried in both Flash and HTML mode... no sound. -Tried clearing my cache and restarting... no sound.

When I play videos I can open the volume mixer, everything's unmuted, but there is no "green bar" that shows sound coming from Firefox. This makes absolutely no sense why it suddenly went from working to not working when I didn't change anything.

Hello,

Yesterday my Firefox was working just fine but today it doesn't play any sounds. I tried everything listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-common-audio-and-video-issues. I also tried "Refreshing" Firefox but nothing changed.

It's only Firefox, Google Chrome and Spotify work great.

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the Firefox version is 59.0b14.

I definitely love your browser, but there is one problem that make me sad. I regularly use the Yandex.Music service. And Firefox does not support Web Audio API on this site. This leads to the fact that the equalizer does not work on the site. All other browsers I used before (Edge, Chrome, Opera) support this API. The above problem is the only reason I can't use Firefox all the time and with pleasure.

From today, Firefox will not play sound from Youtube. It will play sound from other websites. Other browsers on my computer will play sound from Youtube. I have tried all solutions I can think of: I have gone back two recovery points, to before recent Windows updates. I have disabled hardware acceleration on Firefox, as I found a recommendation to do. I have reinstalled Firefox. I have gone back to Windows High Definition Audio (from Realtek). Nothing works.
