Cannot view you tube videos on windows 10

Since I installed windows 10 I can not see most of the you tube videos and wondered how to correct this. I sometimes get a green screen, a totally black screen, sound stutters or no sound but sometimes some of the videos work so I am lost. Can anyone help on this one please? Many thanks. E.

FruitBat, it is still not working on most You tube videos. I am still getting the message 'An error has occurred try again later' Any suggestions to fix it? Thanks E

Hi Fruitbat. I'm following this too and have the same problem and error message as eyesha1. Would also appreciate any further suggestions. Many thanks

I'm having similar problems. Usually when its the HTML5 payer the video works ok. Flash player I have problems with, or rather my APU has. It's a low quality CPU and with Windows 10, Flash player seems to over work it.

I use IE 11 mostly. On you tube if I get an error then a black screen with stuttering audio I keep refreshing until I have audio working ok. Sometimes the video shows but if it doesn't then I change the view to cinema mode and that brings the video showing and I can go back to default view. Sometimes full screen bring the video playing ok. Using Firefox my AMD APU runs at full throttle but the video loads.

I should have added that once the YouTube video is playing I can change it to 720pHD and after a little stutter will play the whole video in HD. CPU going from 50% to about 98% and I leave the mouse alone!

I changed from Google to Google Chrome and some videos I couldn't watch before are playing now but I am not saying the problem is yet solved but thought this might help someone else.

Still having problems watching you tube videos. I see a lot of green and no picture although there is usually sound - sometimes. Running win 10 on a Toshiba Satellite C850-12L. Thanks in advance

If it's this model then you have the same APU and graphics I have :(
