Audio not working for streaming radio

by MariaChristina / March 2, 2010 5:26 PM PST

My sound doesn't work when streaming radio, but only for radio! I usually listen to BBC Radio 1 via their homepage, but suddenly yesterday, the sound disappeared. I tried various other radio streams and they all failed too. All other sound output, ie. youtube, Itunes, DVD player, online games etc work fine.

Would anybody know what's going on?
