Let's deal with sound first. Open a terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T) and enter:

sudo nano /proc/asound/modules

and paste back the results here.

Is it happening only on youtube?

Strange - here is mine:

hmmn.... what is the solution ??

First line = you don't have the rights to write that file. (
[ Error writing lock file /proc/asound/.modules.swp: No such file or directory ])

Next two lines are reference to Help choices...

Maybe @Aravisian or @337harvey may know more.

You mentioned that you can't play videos from CD either but that can be a completely unrelated problem. And what do you mean by "Youtube video playing very slow"? Is it buffering? In that case, it might be an internet issue? Did you check in any other websites?
About the sound issue...Can you not hear anything? or is it just in Youtube? Lastly, try using any other browser to check if the problem exists there as well....Also, is the CD getting detected at all or you can see the video files but can't open them?

You do not have that file.

On your videos:
You may just need the Codecs:

Install Multimedia Codecs Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
