I used to listen to music on Youtube and everything was perfect until for some reason yesterday, the audio quality became super bad! It sounds as if my headphones are half plugged... There is too much noise... I mean, it is unbearable! I tried unplugging my headphones and listeing through my speakers, but it was still the same.

On the other hand, I tried listening to music from my computer using Windows Media Player and it works like a charm... no problem at all!
As a test, I tried listening to a song on Youtube called Concrete Angel by Gareth Emery and the audio was very very very bad, then I used a Youtube video downloader (I know that's not legal or something, but it was just a test) and played the exact same song in Windows Media player and it sounded perfectly!

I tried using Google Chrome and Internet Explorer with the same result in both browsers. It would be great if someone would be able to help me!
