Update your flash player plugin to flash player 10.
Update your internet browser.

Make sure you have a good internet connection, and then try refreshing the page if this happens.

If none of these work, it may just be your browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, I would encourage you to try downloading firefox, google chrome, or opera. If you are using firefox, try google chrome. If you own a mac, try using firefox and/or safari.

    If you have an ad-blocker program, you should disable it. They often block flash content. Antivirus programs that filter internet content can sometimes do this as well. Disable your antivirus and see if it works. You should also try disabling your firewall temporarily and try again.

    You can try adding &fmt=18 to the end of the video's url. This may allow it to load properly by loading the HD version of the video. HD videos on youtube seem to suffer from this problem less.

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!

Why does youtube stop playing and then starts again while a circular motion appears in the middle of the screen?


It is very simple youtube uses a streaming system based in flash, this means that the youtube player calls a file of an indetermined size stored in a server, did you ever noticed that in the playing bar below the video there is a red bar that fills the bar progresively this is the bar that shows the amount of video downoading of the file in the server, when the size of the file is to high it takes more time for the video player to download it, what happens is that the playing time is shorter than the download time so the player reaches the amount of video played faster than the video downloaded and it stops until the download progress a littlle bit more to continue playing the video, so if the video has a smaller file size the less the player stops, but small size videos could mean a down of quality in the image of the video depending also in the length of the video and in your internet connection speed.

Good luck

You don;t even need the RealPlayer, you can use YouTube Downloader (free) to download the video to your hard disk and then convert them to MP3.
