Moving to a more appropriate component
QA Whiteboard: [bugday-20150817]
Component: Untriaged → Audio/Video
Product: Firefox → Core
Can you be more specific and provide a URL?
Component: Audio/Video → Audio/Video: Playback

when you start the video pause it for a second or two then play and should get louder
It works for me. What are you using to listen to audio? Build in speakers?
Does this problem happen in Chrome, too?

I am just using built in speakers and doesnt happen in chrome

But I just played another clip on you tube and when i pause and un pause the sound icon on the tab shows
Does it still happen if you use media.decoder.heuristic.dormant.timeout=0 ?

Pause normally pauses the audio output. Dormant mode closes it then re-opens it when you resume.
Try this:

1. Go to Sound Settings
2. Choose the Playback tab (should be the first tab anyway)
3. Select the current device - the one with the green tick
4. Click on Properties
5. Choose the Enhancements tab
6. Tick the Disable all enhancements checkbox.

I just updated on the developer build to latest version doesnt happen anymore so FIXED, might be due to changing the setting in about:config from previous comment

Does it still happen if you use media.decoder.heuristic.dormant.timeout=0?

or something from now is fixed?

Many Thanks
