Not very much of a helpful community. Going on two weeks and not one reply from anyone.
**Description of the issue:**No sound from “selected” videos or other multimedia from the web using Brave browser.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
2, Using either auto play or pressing play on video,
4 Taking shields down does not solve the issue.
Does not happen on all sites or even different videos within the same site. For example here are two videos where sound does not work on one and works on the other (from same user)
I was able to get sound on all the videos you linked to without issue. I’m wondering if the Autoplay function is interfering with the stream as it has been known to do in the past. Can you check and see if enabling Autoplay resolves the issue?
This would not be a permanent solution, since you shouldn’t have to allow Autoplay on sites just to hear sound but it would help at least narrow down the cause.
Thanks for the help.
But, autoplay on or off has no effect. I have tried Brave on 2 different Win 10 computers and neither will allow audio/flash to run on HDTracks. Conversely this site works just fine in the chrome browser - so I know flash is installed and running correctly. I’ve tried every combination of permissions and nothing makes a difference.
I can’t understand how you got it working?
Interesting – can you try visiting the same page(s) that don’t have sound while using a private window and/or after creating a new browsing profile ( Main menu --> Create a new profile)? Also, I didn’t have to do anything to get it to work. Just landing on the links you shared, after starting the video sound plays without any issue.
I tried both a new private window and also created a new profile. In each I enabled Java, Flash and sound for HDtracks (reloaded page after any changes). No sound, the flash player doesn’t even start in either case. I even enabled autoplay - no help there either.
It’s too bad - I like Brave, but I’ll just go back to Chrome as it works.
Thanks for your help.
Problem still exists. Tried everything mentioned so far in the thread. Sound from different sites seems to be random. Sound on my PC is fine and problem only exists when viewing from “certain” videos/files.
No sound at all, Bass included. I have tried different speakers as well to confirm it was not that. (thoughtful I did not have too because I had sound on files on my PC) Seems to me to be a browser issue.
Also sound works:
on other videos from that same user
on several different browsers.
So if it were a hardware issue or software setting (bass etc) then should it not occur on all different videos?
I have sound on all pages that the links lead to. No problems. Win 8.1, the latest version of Brave (115), a desktop computer connected to stereo micro systems and headphones. Java enabled, Flash disabled, autoplay when I allow. I’ve never had similar problems, Brave plays everything.
I also use Opera on a laptop and everything works without any problems.
Thanks for the info. I did go into the CP and the box was already unchecked. So I checked it and restarted the browser and still no sound from selected videos. I then unchecked and restarted and again no sound from selected videos.
Never installed any extension that I know of but I did a screenshot of the extension page in settings…
