Sounds not playing through the headsets

Sounds not playing through the headsets

The sound will not play through my headset today.  It plays through the laptop speakers even when I have the headphones plugged in.  I cleared my cache and rebooted several times.  The headphones play normal on You tube.

mine is doing the opposite. plays through headset instead of speakers(default device).

When I watch anything from Xfinity using Safai it will only play audio from internal speakers but when using Chrome it will play through my external speakers just fine.

I have the exact same problem as in the base note.

I had a large Windows 10 Update and had thought that was the issue - now I'm not sure.

Everything BUT Comcast seems to work just fine.  Netflix, YouTube, MP3, etc. all seem to work but when I try to watch Live TV the sound ONLY goes to the speakers, not the USB Headphones.

 

HELP!!!!

 

Thanks!

Try chrome, last update of adobe flash has a bug, it messes with audio output.

Tried Chrome and it worked!

 

I then went back to IE and cleared the history/cache.  It didn't work.

I cleared it again and rebooted the laptop and IT WORKS!

 

Thanks!

Did this. Works for a day. Have to do it all over again a day later.
