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.

How can I watch or stream movies in full screen on my tablet


Generally each video is in a different format, because of this there is not a standard for symbols that mean full screen. Generally there are symbols in the corners when you tap once on the body of the video (meaning not on the edge) this may present more symbols or glyphs so that you can enter full screen mode.

If this is an embedded video on a website it is possible that the player does not offer full screen. For instance YouTube videos can sometimes require you to follow the step she in the paragraph above and tap on view in YouTube in order to be teansfered to the YouTube video (realatively seemlessly, it will usually save your spot in the video so you do not have to start from the beginning) you will then be transferred to the official YouTube page, this should allow for all of the options including full screen.

Different web browsers also tailor to the playing of different kinds of videos better than others, if your device allows you to go to an App Store, or Google Play store you may want to try some of the following browsers until you find one that plays the video the way you prefer with options that best suit your needs. Firefox, Chrome browser by google.

Sometimes with the vast variety of video formats we cannot play videos at full screen however taking the measures above will give us the best chance of finding the right tools to get the job done.

Boss touch screen... how do u get the stereo to play ipod videos... the ipod is hooked up but only reads the songs


Is it an ipod video you have ?

The iPod Touch is a multimedia player made by Apple, with a 3.5-inch touch-sensitive display and a built-in speaker, which makes it suitable for watching videos on the go. The device connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi, allowing you to download videos from Apple's iTunes Store, and stream videos from video-sharing websites like YouTube or movies from sites like Amazon or Netflix. You can also shoot videos with the iPod Touch's two built-in cameras.

Tap the Photos app icon on the Home screen to watch a video you shot with your iPod Touch's camera. Tap "Camera Roll." Thumbnail images of pictures and videos you shot appear on the screen. Video thumbnails have a video camera icon. Tap the thumbnail of a video to open it, then press the "Play" button to start playing it. Press the "Home" button to return to the device's home screen when you're finished watching a video. Launch the YouTube app from the Home screen to watch YouTube videos. Tap "Featured" to see a list of videos being promoted by YouTube, or tap "Most Viewed" to see a list of popular videos. Tap "Search," then type a search term, and then tap "Search" to look for videos. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Touch the Videos app icon on the home screen to watch videos you downloaded from Apple's iTunes Store. A list of videos appears. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Hope this helps.

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!

How can I play youtube in my blackberry 8900?


Hi all,

This is because of the BlackBerry Browser as it doesnt support the Video Codecs (protocol).

If you would like to view video content from Youtube, you may have to download other Browser(s).

Another option is "Opera Mini". Which can be downloaded from this address:
http://mini.opera.com

on your blackberry browser: Press "goto" and then goto this address.
http://mini.opera.com

Select download and install the mini opera 4.2 application.

once up and running, you should be able to play video content on your blackberry.

(for the people who require to view the content on WIFI, they should go to the preferences of the opera mini browser and select the wifi checkbox).

Will appreciate if you can rate the offered support by me.

Best Regards,
Techno-geek.
