Rage Quit Youtube.

Postby muy_thaiguy on Fri Nov 09, 2012 11:36 am

Okay, been having some issues with youtube lately. Many times when I click to watch a video, I only get a black screen. I do get audio, but nothing else. Not even the play/pause button or anything on that little toolbar. It works when watching the video, say, with the youtube button on here with watching it on the forums (works all the time). But probably half the time I get that black screen. Anyone offer any help with that? And I did try clearing my cache and cookies, but it didn't change anything.

Youtube now gives me constant, loud crackling noises amidst the normal audio.
I've done nothing to cause this nor do I believe there is anything I can do about it.
I have no problems with audio in any other application I use.

This is not going in the direction I was intending it to go in.

So could you please stipulate which direction you'd like this to go, and I'll try to do my best...

But yeah, audio on youtube is not my problem. It's that about half the videos only come up as black screens with no pictures or anyway to control the video, but I do get audio.

All your plug-ins are up to date?

What browser?

By the way, when I originally stumbled here, I thought it was one of the conspiracy people complaining.

Yup, all plug-ins up to date. First thing I checked actually. And I use explorer, though I get the same results with other web browsers.

And no, not a conspiracy, just a frustration.
