After login, once the desktop is loaded, do you have at least system sounds then? If you go to System -> Preferences -> Sound, there are buttons to test whether sound is produced. Do any of those work? If other sounds work, but youtube doesn't, then it's a problem with the flash plugin probably. Let us know a bit more what your situation is, and then it'll be easier to help.

I have similar issues with the sound in Ubuntu 9.10
Right after restart the sound is working; after awhile the sound stops working.

The way I solve it is to run the following commands (that I've compiled in a script):

$> cat bin/sound.sh [~]

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop
rm -fr .pulse*
sudo alsa force-reload
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

I hope this helps,
