Usually there is a problem with something muted, so if pulse is OK go down
and check alsamixer.
I have tried that. Both channels(?) are set to 100, and I can move
them lower with the Arrow keys. Otherwise I don't know how to
operate this ncurses device.
Now that we know Alan is using Ubuntu, he could even try ubuntu live in
former or current version to compare.
<LOL> I am not part of that "we". I am not using Ubuntu. Furthermore
if I want to hear some nice music or listen to a Sanders speech on
youtube, I get out of jessie, run my Windoze, use the Edge brower
and go to youtube, where the sound works just great.
This suggests to me, and I hope to my readers here, that there is
something wrong with the way alsa works, or doesn't work, here.
I can't imagine what the difficulty is, since the cogent suggestions
that have been made here have not worked.
Perhaps others have some ideas?
