  1. My problem with UTube audio is that I can listen to most UTube videos but there are many I can’t hear.

    Nearly all UTube videos I watch are linked from other web sites such as Neatorama or online newspapers.

    They all use the same settings in Flash, Firefox and the audio and video drivers so I don’t know how to start looking for a problem. In all cases UTube audio is enabled and the sound is at a reasonable listening level.
