Can't view YouTube videos

  Shas 09:41 20 Dec 2006

Do you have to sign up to watch YouTube videos now?

I never had any problem watching them but now the viewing screen appears for a couple of seconds, then disappears and I get the "rate this video" box in its place.

I haven't changed any settings and all the right boxes are ticked. I don't get any messages about Javascript turned off or an out of date version of Flash Player, but I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest versions anyway, just to be sure, but I still can't view any videos.

I've Googled but can only find solutions to if you get the error messages, which I don't. Any suggestions appreciated :o)

Not as far as I am aware. The usual answer to You Tube issues is getting the latest Flashplayer.

For some it has been neceesary to use the Adobe uninstaller to get rid of all the bits of a previous version which add/remove will not do. click here

Adobe themselves accept it is the best way if you look at my link.

Thanks anskyber, giving it a go now.

Used the Adobe uninstaller and then reinstalled. I can now view them through IE but still not my usual SlimBrowser, which I've used for some time now and which is really only an IE skin.

Never mind, I'll just have to switch to IE if I want to watch a YouTube.

Thanks anskyber.

Maybe using the non-IE flashplayer will sort this for here
