YouTube Video Doesn't Play Until Volume Icon is Clicked

Whenever i play a youtube video after a shutdown it just loads and doesnt play and only starts working after pressing the Volume icon on the latte dock on the top right.
I would upload an image but im a new user so i cant.
Edit: Forgot to mention that i use brave browser
Thank You in advanced

Welcome to the forum

I have the exact same problem, not just with youtube videos but with other audio stuff (like in duolingo, any "dings" on websites, etc)

Is autoplay enabled in your browser?

I have had also problems with sound not working with several applications. Also, after touching the sound volume widget sound worked fine with these applications.

I found out that the problem is somehow related to JamesDSP. When quitting JamesDSP sound works fine.

same problem facing in firefox, firedragon as well as opera ..... maybe it will be same for chrome (but i don't use it)....

it says.." if your playback couldn't start shortly,try restarting your device"

it happens after an update , so,
Maybe ... after another updates it will be fixed :blush:
.
btw i experienced it before in garuda kde (even on manjaro kde)..... i think .. this is just an update problem kde only....

Not only video doesn't play, but it also freezes the browser making it unresponsive for like 10-20 seconds.

Thanks for the answer, it fixed my issue with youtube and itturns out JamesDSP was also causing many applications to just freeze
