I can't watch any videos on youtube since last night. The video is just a blank black box that says when I right click it, "Movie not loaded". Flash works fine on other sites, It's just youtube. I've tried reinstalling flash player, and that didn't work. I have java script enabled. Also turning off ad-blocker and no-script did nothing to help the problem. What's weird is that youtube videos on other sites work. It's only just the videos on the youtube site.
I only found 1 temporary solution to fix this. I have to type https:// instead of http:// every time I go to youtube for the flash player to work again. How do I permanently fix this?
Reboot, if that doesn't work, try different browsers, try IE first & if it doesn't work with IE, go in the tools, internet options, advanced, click the reset button under "reset internet explorer settings" & try again.
Also just in case make sure you have latest version of flash & java, who knows.
I have this exact same issue, youtube official site isn't playing any videos. It started a few hours ago. I'm using firefox 5.0. If I modify the address for the video with "https" instead of "http" the videos play normally. What's going on?
It got fixed magically by itself a few minutes ago. Had the issue for 6 hours, still dunno what happened.
