Streaming videos online has become a common practice these days. However, it doesn’t always go as smoothly as you’d want.
In this article, we’re taking a look at how to fix the audio render issue on your web browser.
Restart your PC
One of the first things you should do when encountering an error like this is to try and restart your PC. Rebooting can fix a lot of seemingly random issues out of nowhere as it just gives your machine a fresh start and removes any corrupted files or processes from the memory.

Unplug your audio devices
Another thing that is pretty much similar is unplugging your audio devices and plugging them back in again. This can help restart the drivers that power your particular audio playback device and get around the error.
Uninstall the Radeon software
Several users have reported that the AMD Radeon software on their machines has caused this issue. If you suspect that might be the case with you, try uninstalling the Radeon software from your PC to check if that resolves the issue.
Run the audio troubleshooter
Windows 10 comes with a bunch of really useful troubleshooters that can help resolve problems like this. Here’s how to run the audio troubleshooter.
Step 1: Right-click the sound icon in the taskbar and click Open Sound settings.
Step 2: Scroll down to find the Troubleshoot button. Click it and wait for it to finish. This should hopefully resolve your issue.

Check for audio driver updates
An out of date driver could be causing issues with your audio. Follow these steps to check for updates.
Step 1: Press Windows Key + X and click on Device Manager.
Step 2: Double-click on Sound, video and game controllers to show all visible audio devices.
Step 3: Right-click your audio device and click on Update drivers.
Step 4: Click Search automatically for drivers, and Windows will automatically download and install any driver updates needed.
If this doesn’t work, you can follow the same steps to uninstall the audio drivers and restart your PC to install them again.
Specific issue with ASIO driver
If the error only occurs when you’ve got Cubase open on your system, the problem is most likely out of sync sample rates. Follow these steps to fix your issue.
Step 1: Right-click the speaker icon in the taskbar and click Sounds.
Step 2: Head over to the Playback tab, select your speakers and click Properties.
Step 3: Go to the Advanced tab, and under the Default Format drop-down, select the same rate of your choice.
Step 4: Now head over to the ASIO driver settings and set the same sample rate in the Audio tab.
