I can't hear Youtube audio from headphones


I can't hear any audio while playing Youtube videos nor anything else from Firefox but I can hear the audio from my monitor's speakers.
My output device in sound options is set to my headphones and re-switching or re-plugging the headphones does not help.
I could not find any option to switch the Youtube audio from speakers to headphones.

Please help, I've just switched from Windows 10.

Did you try to go to (Zorin) Settings, then Sound and in there go to Output, clicking to change it to Headphones?

Open terminal (ctrl+alt+T), then from terminl prompt open Alsamixer
Hit [F5] to display all sound channels.
Pan across to Headphone and check it is not Muted "MM"
If it is, hit M to unmute.
If in doubt, set all output channel sliders to high volume.
Then exit.


THANK YOUUUUUU! Fixing it with Alsamixer worked!
