Chrome not playing sound effects anymore

  • Sound effects used to work just fine for me in Chrome. But after one of the recent updates (the one where they first removed the + symbol from the new tab button), Chrome just refuses to play sound effects in HTML5 games. The music still plays as usual. Just no effects.

    I can't seem to find anything conclusive on Google and I repeatedly checked my audio/mixer settings (I'm on Win7 64bit), all seems to be in check. Also sound effects still work properly in other browsers.

    Anyone got any clues on how to resolve this? Did a lot of tinkering, but can't seem to find any solution. It's beginning to annoy the hell out of me. <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    That seems to be a very similar issue indeed. Although the sound effects don't play anywhere for me. Headphones or speakers, doesn't matter.

    I didn't change anything either, everything else audio related works as usual on my computer. So I strongly suspect some rare kink with newer Chrome versions. Weird and totally infuriating. <img src="smileys/smiley7.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • i found the solution to your problem where you can only hear music. if you're 16-bit PCM wave windows file doesn't convert, then there is a reason for it... there is no work around such as adding a manual .ogg. they will still have the problem, im using r114 and fixed the problem. only certain 16-bit PCM wave files fully convert. if they dont you need a program that will create a compatible 16-bit PCM wave. then you will hear both the music and sound effects.
