Why don't I get sound when I play YouTube videos? Quicktime videos work fine.

I have a PowerPC Mac desktop. Other videotypes that don't work are Google Video and Windows Media files. I see the visuals, but get no sound. It's the same in Safari and Firefox. When I try to play wmv files Windows Media Player gives me the following message: "This file may not play correctly because it was compressed by using a codec that is not supported." This even happens when I play files off windowsmedia.com.
Maybe it matters, maybe it doesn't, but about the same time this began, iTunes started to crash unexpectedly every once in a while.
Any ideas what I can do to fix this?
