Question about Computers & Internet

Youtube will not play videos. I see a black box where the video should be. This occurs when I use Safari. It doesn't when I use Google Chrome. I'd like to fix the Safari version though. I don't hear audio. I don't see video. The comments section and everything else loads. Also, if I favorite the video. I can watch it on my channel. I can also watch embedded ones on Facebook with Safari. I am very confused as to why they just won't play where they are actually supposed to.

Safari has issues with youtube in some cases. Try this http://www.youtube.com/html5 that is the html5 based player. You will have to opt-in, but it works great!

YouTube video plays double audio


Try updating your flash to the latest version, If it doesn't fix anything try loading a youtube video using google chrome as that has the flash built in.

If the problem persists even in Chrome, you can try is to check if your sound card drivers are up to date as the issue might be there.

Hop this helps.

My safari wont let me use youtube on go on facebook


Hey there, This usually occurs when Flash Player isn't installed on your computer, which is required for both playing youtube videos and accessing some things on facebook. You can download Flash Player here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/ Or the safari flash plugin here: http://www.apple.com/safari/download/plugins.html
(I'm not sure which operating system etc you're using so if one doesn't work, try the other.

I hope I was able to assist. Please don't forget to rate my solution if I was able to assist.

I'm running Windows XP. Using IE8, the youtube videos won't play. There is no warning or anything, just the video is black and there is no play button. On Google chrome, there is no problem with playing...


Well Sunkengarden, the videos you are watching on YouTube or any such websites are the Flash Player Applications. That means, the Browser on which you are trying watch the videos, needs Flash Player Application to be installed on your computer. Such traditionally most widely used flash players are Adobe Flash Player and Microsoft Silverlight.
While you are using Google Chrome, there is no problem just because of Google Chrome already have in-built flash player within it. But the problem remains for IE or other Browsers.
Different Web-Browsers use different types of Adobe Flash Players (IE type or Non-IE type). So, for best results, I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE Adobe Flash Players on your computer to have all the browsers play the videos without any problem.
Download the Flash Players by clicking on the following links:
Hope this helps,
Regards, Mrityunjay.

You tube video won't play.


Hello thanks for using Fixya
Follow the given solutions. If you cannot play youtube videos

Mostly this problem also occur when you don't have latest adobe flash player, If you don't have latest Adoble Flash Player then download latest version and install it.
You can download latest flash player from HERE


To get on youtube and for smooth videos follow the given general instructions
  • Watch videos at off peak times, if possible
  • Try to do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.
  • Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.
  • Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.
If your problem do not solve and same error occur then may be the problem will be in your browser that may be it do not open facebook then just try to change your browser like Firefox or Google chrome. Both are easily free available on different sites.To download a browser google chrome "Click Here"

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.
