View Full Version : Problems with youtube video

Hi Guys
For some months now when i have gone to youtube and selected a video the video screen appears and i get open video in new tab i have to select this for the video to play, previously i just used to be able to click on the video screen and the video would start, this wasn't any problem.
However a week or so ago when i followed links from the forum initially that video would play OK(via the open in new tab route)
but if i try to watch another video from the list on the right i get that title coming up but the video remains the same (ie the initial video from original link) I have the latest version of the flash player but did do a system reset to earlier config some time ago.
Any body got any ideas i am not very bright in the PC department.

Sounds like a browser issue, have you tried reinstalling your browser ? Firefox is the best one I think.

Hi Eddy
Thanks for your reply
I am using Firefox and have never had problems before, i do have an Add-on -Better Privacy that blocks some Cookies but it used to work normally even with this installed.

Thanks guys
Did a fresh install but it must have picked up something from my profile file and video would still not work so had a look round and was trying to remove my profile but it recommended doing a reset so i did and youtube now works as it should.
Will re-install bookmarks and hope nothing dicks up.
Thanks again
