Fix that YouTube has no volume slider

From The IT Community
Jump to: navigation, search

If your YouTube videos play with no sound or have no volume slider (or volume bar) at all, the whole thing is pretty much useless. Maybe you have tried the video in a different browser and it worked there? Then you might have disabled an option in Internet Explorer that has been ignored by YouTube until now, but not any more.

Here is how to fix that YouTube has no volume slider:

  • Open Internet Explorer.
  • Click Tools (or press Alt+X).
  • Click Internet Options.
  • Select Advanced.
  • Scroll down to the Multimedia section.
  • Check Enable alternative CODECS.
  • Check Play sounds in webpages.

Now, reload your YouTube page and everything should be fine again.
