I have surf installed with the following gst-plugins :

gst-plugins-base

gst-plugins-bad

gst-plugins-good

gst-plugins-ugly

gst-plugins-opus

gst-plugins-libav

gst-plugins-x264

I also have media-plugins/alsa-plugins installed with the pulseaudio USE flag

I can watch youtube videos but there is no audio...

anyway to fix this ?

Do the videos not play or do you hear no sound? At my computer it is working.

I can see the videos on youtube, but there is no audio. I can also confirm that it's not just youtube..there is no audio on other websites as well..

ALSA is working because running:

speaker-test -c 2

produces noise in left and right speakers.

Do you have alsa-plugins or pulseaudio installed ? what gst-plugins do you have ? what is the output of "equery list gst-plugins*" ?

Try to have USE="...pulseaudio" IN make.conf.
This way all plugins and libs will be built with pulseaudio support.
Browsers seem to prefer pulseaudio to alsa.
For example firefox needs it.There is a workaround to override this default when configuring it.
Also try emerging
Code:
media-sound/pavucontrol
