Hey, new to the forums, and hopefully it was me who just didn't look hard enough for a previous thread, but I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem. VV, thanks for any help! Specs: Intel iMac 20" The Problem: The audio on any imbedded online video (that generally uses macromedia's flash 8 player), such as Youtube or google video doens't seem to work[edit: also myspace audio]. The video portion is fine, but there is just no audio. The mute button is off, and the sound is up full blast, I've tried closing all other video applications of the sort but still get no sound. It is specifically online videos that don't seem to have audio; itunes, vlc, quicktime, and the sort all work fine so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the speakers. The thing is when I first got my mac the videos worked fine, it was somewhere in between my second week when it stopped working, I've been to the genius bar about it, but they just told me to take it up directly with Adobe, after the reinstallation of the flash player bore no success. Adobe doesn't know whats up and directed me to apple. I've reinstalled OSX which didn't do a thing, the only thing I could think of was maybe interference from Onyx, perhaps deleting some vital piece of a plug-in somewhere, but after confirming with my friend who owns a MBP, our plugin folders seem to match. I've been living for it for awhile, and just figure it will go away, but blind-eyed optimism won't let me hear myspace songs. I hope this is just some hella easy thing I've overlooked like a button to uncheck or something, because "Garbage Day" just isn't the same without audio . Someone please, give me some insight into why I suck at life!
