VLC video player suddenly has no sound

I have been using my VLC media player to play video recordings for a project I am working on. Everything has worked great, but suddenly, while listening and watching a video file, the sound stopped playing. I thought it was a problem with the recording at first, but I went back to the part i'd just been listening to and now it has no sound either.
So it seems to be a problem with the media player.
I did already check audio preferences and my S/PDIF box is already unchecked.
My sound on my keyboard is turned all the way up, and the audio isn't muted (at least no check by the "muted" on the audio menu.
I hope someone knows what to do. I'm bewildered!!! Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!
The files are MTS files but I doubt that that matters. I've always been able to hear the sound on these files before.

ok found this today vlc had no sound while it was playing tap on the volume icon on the task bar while something was playing then I got curios I tapped mixer and noticed a control with the file playing title it was muted in windows mixer unmuted works great I guess it's a glitch in the last windows update hope it works for you as it did me
Uggh! Now I have the same problem again.
Really puzzling! The sound came back on when I checked the box in VLC preferences --> audio, for "use S/PDIF"
After listening for about half an hour, with everything working fine, suddenly now the audio is gone again. The picture plays fine but no sound.
Paulger, I did check if my version is up-to-date. I'm on a mac, and have version 2.0.5 which my computer's "check for updates" program says is the most recent one.
If anyone has any more ideas to try, I'd appreciate it greatly!!!

I was able to ^A to scroll through audio options until I hit on the right option. Never had to deal with that one before.
