    You could also try these things:

    1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
    2. Allow as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
    3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.

    how would I check what program is set as the default streaming app since its only youtube that wont work for me all other video sites work fine

SOURCE: videos don't start

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.

My ematic genesis prime will not allow me to watch YouTube videos. I can go on the app but whenever select a video the sound comes on but the video itself is just a black screen. Any ideas?

Go into the app settings and uninstall any updates. I made the mistake of allowing Google Play to automatically update all my apps, and it updated the Youtube app in the process. The result was exactly as you describe: a black screen in place of the picture. Once the Youtube app was rolled back to the factory default version, it started working properly.

1 Answer I attempt to play

I think there's probably a problem with adobe flash, try updating it.
If that doesn't work try right clicking on the black screen then disable hardware acceleration (you may have to click one of the small icons below, the computer screen on the left, for this option to appear) and then restart you browser.
If you use safari you may have to open it back up in 32bit mode
to do this rightclick> get info> then look for "open in 32bit mode"

When i choose a video on youtube the video doesn't show its just a black screen where the video screen is supposed to be

the black screen indicates that you will up-grade your flash player and you can download the flash player from the official website of the adobe flash player and install it and then you can see youtube videos easily
