Google now offers an option to mute sounds:
This setting applies to all Hangouts notifications from Gmail, Google+
and the Chrome extension on the same desktop computer.
Turn sound off for notification sounds
Click menu ▼ at the top of your Hangouts list.
Check the box next to "Mute."

It's a YouTube bug. According to Google employee ytKeane, it's is a known issue. His or her reply in the Google Product forum is as follows:
Thanks for your patience, all. We have been aware of this issue. It should be resolved soon.
While this issue is live, please try clearing your browser's cache and cookies, or the workaround:

Edit 2013/12/16: they added an option to mute all sounds, indefinitely. Finally! See this answer
As of today (2013/05/21), you can't (even though it's requested), but I found a way to prevent the sound to be loaded and therefore played.
In short: I redirect the link to the alert audio file (which you can find at the bottom of the answer) to a non-existent ...
Alas, the "mute" feature only keeps incoming messages from putting that thread back into the inbox. (1) It doesn't keep the thread out of a label even if you use a label as a secondary inbox. (2) There's no equivalent of "mute" to mute a thread from another label. (3) Filters can't test if the incoming message is going into a muted thread.
Archive or mute ...
At foursquare.com, if you go to the user profile for that user, there is a drop-down that lets you set the notifications you receive from that person.
Simply set that to "Off" instead of "Always On" or "Nearby" and you should be good to go.
On my Android, if I go to the "Profile & History" for one of my Foursquare friends, there's a button directly ...
You do have a Mute function in Gmail. If you have keyboard shortcuts enabled, simply press M to mute a conversation.
Otherwise, click the More button in the Gmail toolbar, and select Mute, Ignore or whatever it is called in your language:
Feature to mute categories from the main feed doesn't exist (vote here).
Currently the only choice is to use 'Mute Filters' to create a temporary mute for individual websites on all feeds. You can pause it at any time if you want to access the muted feed.
Please note, that this is a Feedly Pro feature.
Click on "Filters" on the left navigation bar.

I helped deploy an update to the FrankerFaceZ browser extension that fixes this issue. (It's also available as a userscript.)
Disable this setting: Channel > Player > Front Page > Auto-play featured broadcasters
BetterTTV is another alternate chrome extension that has a setting to disable the featured video from playing on the Twitch homepage, among other features.
After encountering the same problem, encountering your thread, and leaving sad, a hack just occured to me. Manual muting:
What if we make a tag "MUTED" and add it to conversations we no longer want to follow. Then, when you check your email, you open the muted tag, click more->"Mark all as read". Then the rest of your tags are now cleaned.
After rewording a few times in Google, finally found it with: "manage twitter mutes"
Just visit this settings page dedicated to managing your muted members:
And you will be presented with something like this:

In Gmail, when viewing the conversation, open the "More" menu and choose "Mute".
From Google Support (archived):
Muted conversations will only pop back into your inbox ready for your attention if a new message in the conversation is addressed to you and no one else, or if you're added to the "To" or "Cc" line in a new message.
Thread-local mute on the mail client is the best option I've found so far. On Gmail, this means waiting for at least two comments in the same thread so that the option to mute appears. If there's only one comment/email, Gmail gives no option to mute it.
This obviously isn't ideal, there doesn't seem to be any way to mute them on the YouTube side.
I don't think there is a way to disable muting, but there is a workaround without having to disable keyboard shortcuts altogether.
Under Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts just change the shortcut key for muting to a combination of characters that you are unlikely to accidentally type.
I changed this shortcut as well, as I had the same problem with ...
Just answering my own question just in case someone find it useful.
Create a second filter that adds a nested 'not-muted' label to the first message within a thread. A couple possible ways to filter by the first message:
NOTE: The name of the group is important. Gmail ignores special characters
Use a gmail period or plus email for your user-group (e.g., if your gmail is firstname.lastname@example.org use foo+...
Use your favourite adblock plugin to block the URL to the mp3, which at the time of writing is:
In Chrome this appears to only work in web interfaces, and not in the browser extension.
This is not possible on the regular hangouts platform. It can have at max 15 participants. (25 if your school has Google Apps for Education)
Hangouts on air, however, will also only allow 15 (25 if you're on GAE) students to ask questions (actually participate in the call). The others will have to be spectators. But you can allow them to send you questions ...
Original poster is using a YouTube playlist not playing from Facebook thumbnails. Plus I'm encountering this issue, playing from YouTube website in Chrome for mobile.
I've seen multiple answers on multiple sites, all different. Try this from reddit:
Apparently YouTube tries to smart remember what it thinks your preferred volume is. To clear that setting, ...
I don't know of a way inside of Twitch's settings to do this, but you can have a userscript (using something like TamperMonkey) for it!
Essentially the technique is to keep looking for any new video elements being added inside of a particular iframe on the homepage of Twitch (because it's added dynamically) and pause/mute them. Here's a quick and dirty ...
In the hangout you will be able to mute each participant individually by selecting them and using the drop down menu (A down-pointing arrow). There are limits to the number of participants. 15 for the free generic Google accounts and I believe 25 if you have a G Suite for Education, Business, or Non-Profits. Another option would be to do a Live Hangouts ...
In the Inbox web UI there is no menu option for Mute, but you can use the M key. Sorry I didn't see the "mobile" part of the question before I answered.
There is no way to Mute in the mobile app AFAIK at this time.
Hitting ? will display the keyboard shortcuts and allow you to enable / disable them.
In New Gmail (introduced in July 2018), it's different:
This is the confusing part. There are two 3 dots menu items. In New Gmail, only the top one has the Mute option!
If you enable Gmail shortcuts, you can click "m" to mute a conversation.
When you mute a message: Any replies stay out of your inbox. You can search for the conversation if you ...
What does [the video received too many views] mean?
There are restrictions on views and video length for YouTube's enhancement and editing features.
Am I understanding this problem correctly?
If you "save as", you make a new video while preserving the current video as-is. The new one won't have any views.
Is there any alternative?
Getting a ...
I only see posts from people that I follow. There's a What's Hot on Google+ feature, but you can turn that off, see How do I completely disable the "Hot on Google+" feature?. I would suggest doing that, or perhaps following fewer people. Whenever one of my posts gets muted, Google+ tells me, but doesn't tell me who did the flagging. It is sort of ...
I believe Google has disabled the keyboard shortcut for muting a video call using the spacebar, so I don't believe this is going to be too much of a problem now.
I can suggest, however, is to lock the keyboard if you are on the video call, which prevents toddlers from accidentally pressing on any keyboard buttons while on the video call, but you can try ...
