Question about YouTube Videos

8 Answers

Black screen,no play buttons

Whenever i want to play a video, i click on the
video, then that takes me to the screen where it should start playing,
and everything loads right, because i see everything except the video
itself, all i get is a black screen, no audio. I dont even get a
button to press play or pause. its just a black rectangle. Ive
followed the suggestion to unistal adobe flash, and then reinstall it
with the latest version..and then restart your computer. So iv done
all that and the problem still persists. and i know its not just the
site down because i can get on my main computer upstairs and watch
videos all day long. If you could help me that would be amazing, thanks

I had a black screen on youtube, no control buttons.
The odd thing was that I could play most of the featured vids.
I fiddled around for half the day uninstalling, reinstalling things.
!!! and finally found the soulution to my particular problem!!!
tools>internet options>security
When I got to that point I noticed that the 'enable protected mode'
box was checked..UNCHECK IT!.
Youtube now works for all vids, Hopefully I'll have no security problems as a result but I use internet security and a firewall.......

I had exactly the same problem after installing Flash version 10. To fix whe the black screen loads right click on About Flash Player and it should load an Adobe page with a Flash Installation Complete video playing at the top. If this displays then restart your browser and all should be ok.
If the Installation Complete video doesn't work try unistalling adobe flash and reinstalling

I just had this problem and I finally figured it out so I hope this works for you!

first of all checkyou have the latest version of adobe flash player (which is flash player 10 right now)

If you don't have the latest version then download it by right clicking the video, selecting 'adobe flash player' andthen following the steps on their website.

If this doesn't help (it didn't help me) then it's because you need the latest version of java. When I restarted my computer after downloading the adobe flash player, a java update appeared on the bottom right hand corner of my screen. I simply clicked and downloaded the update and my youtube videos suddenly played!

so basically check you have the latest updates of adobe flash player and java! :)

When i click on youtube videos, the screen comes up but doesnt play it just stays black.


I've had this issue too on my HP G72.
Install any updates to Adobe's Flash player. If this doesn't work try reinstalling Adobe Flash.
Also make sure to install any available updates to your computer. Hopefully these tasks will work. My Youtube video's randomly started just showing black a few months ago, especially whenever a HD/even 420p video was played.
Best of luck!
