Question about YouTube Videos

4 Answers

Unable to view youtube videos

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

First delete all internet files and cookies, that may be the reason.

You may need to update Internet explorer.

Try downloading a different browser like firefox, and test youtube on the new browser.

Its possibly a problem with your internet browser, please try another browser. Suggest you try the newest google chrome and report back how it works.

Use tube in my iphon


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Turn on the iPhone's Wi-Fi by tapping "Settings," then "wi-fi" and finally "On." Your phone must be connected either to a wireless network or 3G data plan. Youtube videos can be searched and watched only if the iPhone is receiving Internet data.
  • Tap the Youtube icon on the home screen of the iPhone. You can access the iPhone's home screen by pushing the "home" button located just beneath the screen of the phone.
  • Search for specific Youtube videos or browse featured, most viewed or favorite videos. Search for specific videos by tapping the search box and typing in your desired video. Browse Youtube videos by selecting one of the tabs on the top of the screen.
  • Play a Youtube video. When you find a video you wish to watch, simply tap the screen over the video. The video will begin playing in landscape mode, so turn the iPhone sideways so it is oriented horizontally.
    Control the video with the onscreen buttons. You can pause, play, fast forward, and rewind a video clip from the iPhone screen. Tap the screen to bring up the controls and tap the onscreen icons to control the video.

    I hope this solution helps you.
    Let me if you have some confusion
    Thank you for using FixYa
