If your iPad or iPhone doesn't have sound, it is probably NOT broken. The iPad sound might not be working only on certain games (sound effects) or apps, even though you try to increase the volume... Fix your iPad sound: the solution is easy and also applies to iPhones.

IMPORTANT: If you tried everything in the video but have "headphones" indication even when you don't have headphones inserted, your iPad might moisture in the headphones connector. Try inserting and removing your headphones a few times. Also, be sure the docking connector (where you charge the iPad/iPhone) is clean: use a dry toothbrush to remove any dust/dirty particles from the bottom connector. Keeping the iPad in a plastic zip bag with some silica envelopes for a night might help in the case of moisture messing up with the headphones detection or the external docking audio detection.
INTERESTING: The side switch (or the 'silent' in Control Center) doesn't mute content such as videos in YouTube - this is expected and explained by Apple in its documentation... but it causes some confusion as Apps get silenced and people don't understand why since videos plays sound but apps are quiet.
Steps to solve sound problem presented in the video:
1. Put the side switch UP (so it doesn't show the red mark, which is 'mute/silent')
2. Put the volume all up (lateral buttons)
1b. If the side switch is used to lock the rotation of the screen, use the Control Center and be sure the 'silent' (cut bell) is off (dark).
2b. Put the volume all up.
3. Close all the running apps
4. Reboot the iPad/iPhone
Understand the Lateral Switch:
Reset iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch: (rebooting, forcing it 'off' and 'on' again)
