No sound in HTML5(and HTML5 on Youtube)


First of all I had no idea where to post this so it ended up here(you can move it if you want).

OK, so I have no sound when I watch HTML5 videos online(for example on Youtube). It is the same on all websites and all browers I have tried(firefox, chromium, konqueror). I am running Arch Linux with ALSA and Pulseaudio. I also have all gstreamer plugins installed.

I have looked online for help, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have a clue to why it doesn't work? Btw it worked in Windows 7 and some other distros I have tried(like Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE).

Should tell you what works and don't work to give you a better idea of what is going on.

Does anyone have a clue to why it doesn't work
I don't run Arch Linux so hopefully a Arch user will chime in. Also.

Simple video test page for html5

After having installed a ton of different browsers and codecs I somehow fixed the problem. HTML5 works great now(including firefox).
