Just had a rather weird thing happen for the first time and I'm curious if anybody else has seen something like this: Went to a Youtube video. I have flashblock on, so I got the h.264 version of it, which presumably is played through QuickTime. There was something wrong with the video, however; it showed up blank white instead of with a picture. "Huh." I think and hit play. Really, really loud static-y, repeating, click-like sound comes out of speakers, scares the crap out of me. Thought at first I had the volume way up, but no--only about 1/4 level. Experimented a bit to find that with the sound completely off, no sound, but as soon as it hit a single notch on the volume meter full-volume glitchy static. Everything else was fine, and when I reloaded the page the video loaded and played properly. I don't care about the Youtube glitch--it's a non-standard, semi-hacked interface anyway. What I do want to know is if anybody has ever had an app bypass the system sound setting like that.
