|YouTube suddenly won't play - Flash Update||disasterpastor45||6/20/09 10:02 PM|
About 5 minutes ago, I was watching videos for an hour on YT then suddenly YT says I need a Flash Update and I can't play any videos or navigate around my playlists. I got the Flash Update, nothing has changed. I just get a nag note to update my Flash on the YT screen & no videos will even appear much less play. I'm first in line with this bug. I'm using Firefox 3.

Firefox has one huge problem and it are the users because they love to install a lot of plugins. Creating instability and other problems with the browser. If you have recently installed a new plugin then disable or uninstall it. Especially ad blockers are mostlikely the reason why YouTube isn't running anymore as AdSense also uses the YouTube features to provide audiovisual advertisement.
Regarding the Flash Update make also sure to have uninstalled Flash before updating as some updates are only additions in lines of the code and so a broken code or bug is maybe not fixed.

I uninstalled previous installation of Flash, rebooted & reinstalled new Flash. Flash works OK at Flash website. YouTube videos embedded in a MySpace forum play OK. But my YouTube Channel is totally crippled and I can't do or play anything.

It's not just Firefox. I get it with IE8 and Safari. It's completely a YouTube issue. This has come up before on the forums but I've never seen a solution. I get that and I get a completely black rectangle where the video should be, not even any controls to play or anything.

A couple years ago, I got the black box problem on another computer, and it did turn out to be a flash issue that required reinstallation of flash. But I think I had to wait a month or longer for a newer version of flash to come out first.

Yeah, I tried the uninstall reinstall thing and it didn't work. I'm trying everything suggested. It seems to be a hit or miss problem.

None of the YouTube videos will play. Most YouTube pages will not even load. I have no problems watching videos on any other site, so this is definitely a YouTube issue. This has been going on all week. Most days I can't even access my channel. When I am able to access my channel, no videos will play. What is going on? Has anyone else been experiencing the same trouble?
I did everything per instructions on the help page and the videos still do not play. I have no problem playing videos from any other site, so I'm sure this is a YouTube issue. When will someone fix the problem, or at least acknowledge that the site is broken?

Some time go I had a problem with Adobe software. It wouldn't even start. Adobe did not acknowledge the problem and therefore were of no help claiming it was something to do with my computer. I eventually discovered that Adobe fools around with permissions in the register and somehow managed to skip a beat when installing. After that, even a reinstall was of no use. I had togo in to the register and manually set permissions. I set everything for all users and administrators to have permission for everything. That worked. The moral of my sad tale is "don't expect any meaningful help from Adobe". Their egos won't allow an admission that they screwed up.

i have the same problem but only at opera. it happened twice already. all i could think of is a clear cache, it didnt work, then i downloaded latest beta version of player, it didnt work. my conclusion its most likely a youtube glitch

All of a sudden, videos won't load with Opera. Mozilla works fine though.

I also have this issue where videos can't play because it tells me I need to upgrade my Flash Player. Thing is, I already upgraded my player. I use the most recent version of Opera just in case. Hopes someone comes up with an answer to this problem.

Ok I found these work around here for the problem, which may work for now until YT fixes the blasted problem..

Please help, I don't know if this problem has been fixed or not but I cannot watch videos anymore. I've update EVERYTHING that I could update and I still can't play them. I can search for videos, I can go to my channel, but no videos play. I've been searching high and low to see if anyone had any solutions to this but I haven't seen any. I'm starting to think that Youtube doesn't want me watching anymore videos. Those bastards! I'm in dire need of help!

Elmo, Where in the registry did you go to set permissions?
