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!

Youtube just produces a green screen


You may need to update your Adobe Flash Plugin. Use another browser to see if the problem occurs.

I can't hear anything when I watch youtube. Why?


Step 1:

it could be one of 2 things. either its youtube or you.

Step 2:

YOUTUBE CHECK: go onto a video and scroll over the icon on the video that is next to the play button. scroll over it and you will see a tab that you can move for sound. if that doesnt work you can try this other way.

Step 3:

COMPUTER CHECK: first make sure you have some sort of a speaker for sound to come out of. ok. now, check to see if they are plugged in. if they are and are still not working go to the lower right hand corner of your computer screen click the tiny button that looks like a megaphone you can change the volume now. HOPE THIS HELPS!

Compaq wont play youtube videos


Make sure your computer meets these requirements. Flash player installed would be the most important.

Hi , when i try to play a video on you tube it just displays a small black screen and doesnt play and i have the new java and flash player , can you help ?


Hello lewis_a_1,
You will need to clear the cache (temporary internet files) in your browser! I had this happen earlier this week with YouTube.
If you need step-by-step help, please provide your browser and version!
If this was helpful, please give me thumbs up!

I've always been able to watch videos now when I click on chosen video the screen stays black and there are no play/pause/sound arrows so I can't watch anything.


Check to see that your flash player is up to date. If so, make sure there aren't any software changes on your computer. there are times when an update to a browser could affect a required plugin, or even cases where installing additional software could affect how a browser operates...

The video screen is black no matter what i do


When this happened to me, I did the following. I have a Windows Vista Operating system. On my browser tool bar, I clicked on Tools, then Internet Options. On the Security tab, I clicked on Reset Defaults for all 4 zones (internet, intranet, allowed sites, and blocked.) I then had to reboot. I hope this helps.

Thank you for reaching out to FixYa.
