sound should work out of the box unless your sound card is not supported by the kernel version used in kiosk.
please boot to text mode and then run following commands:

Code: Select all

lsmod | grep snd
cat /proc/asound/cards
if everything is ok then maybe you just have to rise the volume - please run following command:

Code: Select all

amixer set Master 100%
once done please run 'startx' and check if you get the sound from youtube videos.
if no then you may set volume on other channels as well.
if yes then you can add 'amixer' commands to rc.local.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
