    Maybe some of those videos do not have sound?

    Did you check the connection from your speakers to your sound card to make certain the connection is not loose?

    This might be due to missing audio codecs. There are some utilities out there which can tell you what video and audio codecs a movie has been encoded by. One such utility is "AVIcodec". Install it and check if the audio codec the movie uses is installed on your system.

    Edit:
    Sorry, I didn't pay attention. Now I realize it's about online video streams. As far as I know, they cannot be checked with AVIcodec, but neverheless the problem might be related to missing audio codecs. Try to find info on the website you are viewing, what kind of codecs they are using.
