    This is absolutely driving me CrAzY!

    I'm attempting to use Youtube, and whenever I adjust any setting, even just starting and stopping the video, the audio drops out and usually won't come back. I can reload or switch positions in the audio track or some other fiddling with it and it will sometimes restore the sound, but this is not reliable. At some point, it will just die and not come back until I reboot.

    If I just don't touch the video, audio will go indefinitely on Autoplay, but try to move ahead, or start and stop muting or whatever and it kills the audio.

    Is this attributable to some conflict with the audio settings...or what?

    Many thanks for setting me straight on this!

    I would try YouTube with another browser as a test, see if it works properly then.
