So here is an issue that I run into sometimes:

There are some (not many but some) You Tube vids that will not have any sound when I am watching them in my Google Chrome Browser.

Here is the latest one that I have experienced this on:



If I copy/paste the URL into the Microsoft Edge browser, the video, with sound, plays just fine.

99% of videos play fine but then every once in a while one will not.

Why would something like this happen?

Any thoughts/suggestions?

I'd guess it is Chrome's built-in ad or script blocker.

Unfortunately Google Chrome's simplicity is also it's weakness. It has so few options, you can't really tweak or tinker much to get it to behave.

Probably the dividends of dumbed down options.

I have no problems watching the video with chrome. ;)

But then chrome is a resource hog. Perhaps that might explain something? :?

Some times the big stick wins. Other times the smart stick does.

I go with the "Many Browsers" strategy.

Chrome is my latest go to for my purposeful public self. Then Firefox. Then Microsoft Whatever. And then some specialist browsers such as Opera for anonymity, Brave for a the chrome flavor of anonymity, and whatever...

We have some good tech resources here. (I am not one of them.) I listen to Nef and some others..

Agree as I found out regarding this site when I was unable to see videos until I activated Chrome. I use both Chrome and Microsoft,

I use Firefox as my primary (due to all the plugins I can pick & choose to add) and I keep Chrome as a backup in case Firefox has some wonky update that temporarily flips out on something. I also have Brave, just in case, but rarely use it; haven't needed to look up bombs or anything in awhile. :P
