    I ike using IE, and the problem occurs only when I use that browser.
    The thing is if I go to youtube I can hear the sound but I can`t see any image!
    It started to bug some time ago, when I watched a stream I could only see the small video, when i clicked 'full page' i`d get a blank page with sound.
    Please, don`t suggest other browsers! :biggrin1:
    I`d like to know if anyone else had this problem, and how they solved it.

    Restart your computer and try again.

    I would occasionally get the opposite using Opera, video but no sound.

    Do you have the latest Adobe Flash Player plug in? Have you scanned for viruses? It could be many things. Java, blocked cookies. Also, empty your browsing history. This may fix the problem. You are a brave man using Internet Explorer.

    Did you try empty your browsing history? Give it a shot. Also check your security settings. They should be set from medium too high.

    I don't know if this is the same problem, but I have a semi-regular issue with YouTube. There is sound but the image is so dark that it's barely visible. The interesting thing is that if I choose to watch other videos from sites of a more adult nature, the videos are fine. Restarting and different browsers never work for me and neither does attempting to install the latest or even an older version of Flash. The only things that seem to correct the issue for me is either a general system update or turning the computer off and on again and sometimes a combination of both is necessary. 'Tis a most curious phenomena, indeed. Hope this helps in some way! :smile:

    luka_ i had this problem and a friend suggested CCleaner I ran the program and problem was solved. It is a free program.
    If you would like to give it a try here is a link to the download.

    Good Luck.

    I have a problem with quicktime videos playing, and have tried reinstalling several times. My Norton system should be cleaning the cookies.

    If you have tried all else I would suggest reformatting.

    Off. Don't shut them off. Set them at medium too high. The settings are there too protect your computer from viruses and malware. You need to scan your computer with malwarebytes. It's free and easy too use and the best out there. It's a very quick install. Update it and get scanning. Do a full scan and then choose drive/ C. It wont take long. Make sure your firewall is up.
