  1. Hi.From yesterday i'm having a lot of problems when i want to watch videos on youtube all i see is a black screen and sometimes a loading circle in the middle of the black screen and nothing happens.I read of the new HTML5 integration in youtube and looks like if flash is no more,i think is the problem i have so i try to unpdate my computer and download anything available but still the problem.
    Anybody with this problem? :'(any other setting i need to perform or what?
    your help will be appreciate.THANKS
  2. Youtube is still flash unless you opted in to the HTML5 trial here:

    Otherwise it seems you may have a connection problem as the video isn't loading.
  3. or you can try logging out and playing it that may bring you back to flash based even if you signed up for the html5 trial.
  4. The strange thing is that youtube videos embedded on facebook or any other page work perfect so this is the dilema i have.
    I try your suggestion but is not working.
  5. Indeed that is strange.. What browser are you using, and have you tried a different browser?
  6. I had the same problem you had with playing videos. You just need to clean out your PC of junk. Use system mechanic. That's what I used at least.
  7. I have IE9 but also test with Chrome Firefox and Opera.
    What is system mechanic?
  8. Its a system cleaner it also cleans out Firefox, after I used it I was able to play videos again.
  9. I download the trial and find a lot of things to fix ....but ,"you know",pay first.
  10. Have you tried simply uninstalling and reinstalling flash? That usually resolves these kinds of issues.
