I have no problems with sound on my PC, but when I watch streaming video, either in Firefox on IE, a lot of the videos, but not all, have a lot of crackling or distortion on them, especially noticable on louder parts of the videos.
Here is an example of a youtube video in which the sound crackles a lot when the video gets louder:
Is this just how the video is or is there something wrong with the sound on my PC? I do not have another machine to test these videos on.
It happens not only on Youtube but all online videos. I tried downloading a problematic Youtube video to see if it would play ok offline but it still has the crackling sound, playing offline in VLC or Windows Media Player.
All my volume setttings in the control panel are set to 50%, so it shouldn't be an issue. Both sound drivers and Flash installation are up to date.
Otherwise the sound on my PC is fine.
Please can someone help?
