This is not my computer.  I'm helping a old friend.  It's a Dell D630 laptop with Peppermint 7 on it.  32bit.

I thought the audio card was shot, and I did some tests.  It was alright. 

I remembered that google browser is kind of buggy sometimes for certain things, but things usually work on Firefox, and this was one of those times.  Video audio from youtube on the FF browser works, but video audio from the Google browser doesn't work.  It's all youtube videos. 

What could be causing this problem? 


Thanks

With Chrome open .. fire up:-

Menu > Sound & Video > PulseAudio Volume Control

Select the "Playback" tab.

Is Chrome muted ?

It looks like there is nothing about Chrome on that volume Control window like you said.  I had looked here earlier, and there was nothing here, so I just went with there was a problem because there was nothing anywhere to adjust. 

I gathered on another platform that this is a 32bit Peppermint 7 OS, and Google dropped 32 bit a while back.  The suggestion was that I needed to upgrade to a 64bit disotros.

I have 2GB in the RAM.  Which disotros should I get, and where is a safe place to download it from? 

There's so many disotros, and I'm 100% new to Linux this week, but I think I like it better than the other OS systems.

You'll have to be playing some audio in the browser to see Chrome in the volume control tab. Put a video on or something.

Any particular reason you're using Chrome ? .. there's still 32bit Chromium (or Firefox) ;)

Okay.  I'm just going to stick with FF and DuckDuckGo.  This is not my laptop, but I was figuring out the sound problem for him.  He'll take it like it is as long as he knows how to use it. 


Thanks for the help.  :)

You are not forced to use duckduckgo with Firefox.
I guess you know it but, you can easily set Google as the default search engine in Firefox preferences.
