    I can watch embedded Youtube videos from Facebook but every time I try to watch a video from Youtube.com all I get are black boxes. [​IMG]

    Might just be facebook, btw why is this in the EOF? Should this not be in the off topic?

    You're using Chrome, right?
    It happens sometimes when I use Chrome.

    Right click > Stop Download. Click wherever you want it to resume and it's fixed.

    Wait, ALL you get are black boxes? If so, I don't know if this will work since I doubt it's the same problem.

    Are you on some flavor of Linux?

    Adobe has awful (but at least existent) Linux support.

    I'm having the same problem - I could view videos earlier today, but a little while ago, I started getting blank black boxes :/

    I've had no problems other than slow loading times.

    Hey everyone. I'm using Chrome. I also tried Firefox and I get the same problem. I even went to the extreme of uninstalling Flash and Chrome and re-installing the programs and I get the same issue. I called my ISP and the person over the phone tried to push me onto the customer support for my router (since the issue is only happening with my wifi/traditional computing devices). I just dont know. Everything was working fine yesterday and suddenly today I just get black boxes. It's weird. I can use YouTube XL from the computers so I guess I'm stuck with that for a while...

    Do you have anything like ad-block?
    I mean i tried on Linux Fedora and Ubuntu as well on Windows 7 using both Firefox and Chrome and no problems with youtube on any of them.
    I haven't tested on facebook since I don't use it.
    As I said, does it only happen with Facebook? It could just be a facebook problem.
