Somehow Youtube is not working in Google Chrome, does anyone have a solution for this? jwaka 1/31/10 9:19 AM
Youtube is not working in Google Chrome. Whenever I go to a youtube video all I get is a black box. I have recently updated to the newest version of flash, so that shouldn't be the problem. The only thing I have changed is the google chrome version, I have updated it to the newest version as said below. I have also installed a few add-ons, but it wasn't working before that. The add-ons are:
AniWeather
Beautify Facebook
Send from Gmail (no button)
Better Gmail

Note: I have tried disabling these extensions and the problem still occurs.

Google Chrome version (type in about:version into the address bar): 4.0.249.78
Operating System: Windows 7 Proffesional
URLs (if applicable): http://www.youtube.com/
Error Message: N/A

Thank you!

YouTube requires Flash Player. Re-Install Flash Player

Sorry. I didn't know where to ask it. Although I did solve it. I cleared ALL of my data: browsing, cookies, etc. Now it will load fine. Go figure.

i just now tried it again without clearing browser data and it's working perfectly in both browsers. i think it was just wrong with youtube server

I've been having the same problem — it works when I've disabled all the extensions, and for some time after I've enabled them again, but then it starts to show me the black empty box again...

One thing you could try is joining the beta group to view all videos using the new HTML 5 <video> tag. It removes flash from the equation and the in-video ads (for now at least). I'll warn you that its not for everyone and that it is very much a beta

This issue seem's to be getting chronic for me? I have to continually clear the browser cache and cookies to get Chrome to be have. Any one else?

I had been facing this problem for about a week now. Youtube was playing on all other browsers other than chrome 4.0.249.89. I had my extensions in Google Chrome on and had installed Adblock version 1.3.27. As soon as i disabled the Adblock extension the videos in youtube began playing.

Youtube no longer works on chrome. Every time I watch a vid it just redirects to the home page of youtube. Can't see my thumbnails or any of my user info in top right when I log in. Pathetic

I'm having the same problem, YouTube video playback has become very inconsistent for me this past couple of weeks, I get the black screen and sometimes a script-not-loading properly error, and when I close the YouTube window, I sometimes get part of the audio playing even after the window has fully closed, this is becoming really annoying...

hs22, what version of Chrome and operating system are you using?

For me YouTube search doesn't work, yet other browsers get results but not Chrome.
