    Weird. its fine on this end- I just replayed the video…..there is actually no music for most of the video too….

      Works fine for me too but I know a lot of laptops out there don’t play sound very well (I used to have one) so that might be the case. Earphones might help Norene (if you have any). Sorry you’re having issues :[
