Why can't I watch Youtube videos anymore? BeaHealy 3/3/11 10:03 PM
I cant see the video in YouTube anymore. I can hear the sound/voice, but i cant see the video - it is just white where the video should be playing.

When I play a YouTube video from the small image of the video in Gmail - then the video plays - in Gmail.  But if I click on the actual link to the YouTube video and try to watch the video in the YouTube website itself, I cannot see the video then.

I can't watch the videos anymore. There is no audio or video. I have the updated version of adobe flash player.

I can't see any videos on YT anymore, on my page  or other YT pages. Can't watch any help videos for T becasuyse they are on YT. Repeated scans shows no viruses. Repeated asking for help brings no help. I have not reveieved any warnings or notices from YT; they just won't let me see anything at all. Why? Its not that they won't work but that they won't even show up.  Its all black where vid should be, noty even the little signs underneath for rating, sharing, etc. show up.

This solution from YouTube's help page worked for me:
 
If you can hear audio but can’t see video on the Watch page, this may indicate complications in how your computer handles hardware accelerated video. Hardware accelerated playback (also known as Stage Video) is a feature of the latest version of Adobe Flash, version 10.2, that harnesses your computer’s video hardware to reduce the load on the CPU, delivering smoother video playback with fewer dropped frames, particularly at higher resolutions. A small percentage of YouTube users, however, have reported problems with video playback since this feature rolled out. These are some possible symptoms:
  • The video player is replaced by a black or white box
  • Colors are splotchy
  • There’s a green line splitting the player in two
  • The seek/navigation bar is missing or displaying incorrectly
  • The video stops playing when you change the resolution



How do I get back to watching videos?

While we work with Adobe to smooth out these kinks, the following steps will allow you to disable hardware-accelerated playback:

  1. Right-click in the middle of the video below (or on the on the video you're having issues with)
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click the left-most tab
  4. Uncheck the 'Enable hardware acceleration' checkbox to disable hardware acceleration.
  5. Refresh the page
