I get sound on somethings and on others I don't. On youtube videos and all streaming video online I get sound it seems. If I download a youtube video to my computer which is mp4 format the video plays on my computer but no sound. Also mp3 files will not play in VLC player or movie player. I also can not get streaming audio online to work. I get no sound. like at the website http://www.radiotime.combut I can listen to music at http://www.slacker.com I have the gstream plugins for audio and video installed. I am very confused with this. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated!

try my guide, Since your sound is mostly working you can skip down to the Multiple Application Sound Sharing section and start there:

First I would install ubuntu-restricted-extras by going into the synaptic package manager System->Administration->Synaptic. See if that helps for the mp4 and mp3 problem. As for the streaming problem you should install the mplayer plugin for firefox by going into the synaptic package manager and searching for mplayer and installing it which will also install the plugin for firefox.
