Internet Explorer 11 Plays Video But No Sound

I’m not sure why but recently when I upgraded my Internet Explorer browser to Version 11.0 I noticed when I opened a video in the browser it played but without sound.

To fix this:

  • Go to Internet Options > Advanced Tab
  • Scroll all the way down and select the Play sounds in webpages option

You could also update this setting by requesting your network administrator to run a Group Policy update.


Have you done anything else to fix this? Let us know below.
