Has anyone else noticed that in the past fortnight or so the audio on pretty much every video on YouTube is muffled?February 12, 2021 at 9:46 pm #585
I haven’t noticed anything particularly bad myself. Was it just YouTube that was affected?

Yep, just youtube, on Firefox, haven’t tried on other browsers.February 13, 2021 at 4:58 am #665
Hmmm, might be worth trying. It might just be Firefox shitting itself.

Nope, audio levels are down on chrome too, only for YouTube.February 13, 2021 at 12:33 pm #680
Hmm, yeah that is unusual. Could be some sort of weird codec issue maybe. Are you on a Windows machine or using something else?

Does your machine happen to use a Realtek sound device at all? I seem to be finding a few references to driver issues with these devices sometimes causing weird audio issues, so I’m thinking if it is a Realtek then it’s possible a driver update is causing a few issues.

Yeah, it appears I have RealtekFebruary 13, 2021 at 3:45 pm #687
Website says they haven’t updated drivers for Windows since 2017 though, I’ve only had the problem for weeks.February 13, 2021 at 3:54 pm #689
Do you know what motherboard your machine has? Usually the manufacturer rolls their own drivers, can’t be hurt to try and use those rather than the generic Realtek stuff.

Even their most recent realtek driver for that Mobo is 2019.February 14, 2021 at 4:52 am #709
The reason I was asking about the drivers is I was finding this
The article itself is a little old so it might or might not be relevant now, but I haven’t been able to find much else. I’m thinking it’s either the setting along those lines described in the link, or perhaps a recent update has made some other sort of change that reinstalling the drivers may help.
I can’t really seem to find much else though.

I did install the most recent listed driver from the mobo supplier, issue remains. I do have an add on in firefox for youtube, one of the options is volume boost(which I use on every vid now) so it must be a known issue specific to youtube but I’ve never had to use the boost feature until a few weeks ago.
