    Help with Distorted sound (Realtek on Msi Z87 Xpower)

    Windows notification sounds gets distorted (Playback devices--Test sound), usually when opening youtube in firefox, currently using default win drivers (tried realtek drivers with no luck). When that happens i have to go into playback devices--->Properties---->Advanced, and change Default format (Sample Rate) hit Apply and then it goes to normal.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Additional Info:

    Other sounds (movies,games etc) get distorted only if they are high enough middle and low's are ok as far as i can tell.

    Sounds in other applications would get distorted only after using HTML5 on youtube, with that problem solved now nothing gets distorted anymore

    I have found the solution to my problem, and posting it here maybe someone other can find it useful, the fix for me was to stop using HTML5 on youtube and go back to Flash, i installed a simple extension "youtube Flash-HTML5" once i enabled it all the problems where gone, using it for a few days now and everything is working as intended, also here is the link to the said extension
