1. The speakers you are using.

2. The computer – on Windows, click the volume icon on the bottom right. Make sure things are not muted and the volume is all the way up.

4. ONSCREEN, there is yet ANOTHER volume control!

At the bottom of the video window, you should see this. Click it.wmds controls
