I keep getting this strange thing happening to me on YouTube and I seem to be the only one it happens to.

Sometimes when I find an audiobook on YouTube, I play it but can't hear any sound except from a few squeaks (this happens on some long videos). At first I thought it was something to do with a copyright s**t or something, but when I typed in the comments that I couldn't hear any sound, I just got stupid replies like "u r deaf" and "turn your volume up" (even though the volume on my phone is turned up).
I thought maybe the sound quality might be too advanced for my phone but today I found out that can't be the case, because I listened to half an audiobook yesterday then when I went to listen to the rest today on the same video it wouldn't give any sound other than squeaking here and there. So I take it it's not anything wrong with my phone sound quality or how the YouTuber uploaded the video. It seems more like a glitch or something.

Does this sound familiar to anyone else? Is there a way I can stop this happening? I've tried clearing the cache and everything on my YouTube app but it doesn't make any difference.

Have you tried rebooting your phone?

I am technologically-challenged----but I have found that rebooting tends to solve lots of problems.
