    I can't remember if I posted this fix already so if I have, I appologize and moderators please delete one of them. :eek:

    Anyway, for all you people that have found that flash videos will play on websites but doesn't have sound. I and quite a few others have found this regestry edit to work and fix the problem. I have tried to make the instructions as basic as possible as I know some people don't like editing the regestry but here goes

    1. Go to start menu run and enter REGEDIT and press resturn
    2. This will start the regestry editor. Goto the file menu and select export and save the regestry as a file, make sure you have Export Range / All selected at the bottom of the save file window. This will save the whole regestry as a file, remember where you save the file... You have now backed up the regestry. Now close the regestry editor
    3. Copy all the following BOLD text starting from Windows Regestry Editor Verion 5.00 by highlighting it, right clicking and selecting copy

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]

    4. Goto start menu / run again and this time type in NOTEPAD and click return
    5. Now rightclick on the notepad window and select paste. Then select save from the file menu and save the file, make sure the filename you enter ends in .REG Remember where you saved the file and close notepad
    6. Finally, navigate to your saved file and double click on it. You will see a dialoge asking whether you are sure you want to add the information from the file to the regestry, simply click OK. Once this is done, then try the website you have been having trouble with and see if it works. Any problems, simply double click the backup file you created in step 1 and this will restore your regestry back to what it was
