Youtube broken

Post by stuart @ Sun Nov 13, 2016 1:17 pm

Youtube wont play on my computer anymore, it stopped working last week some time.

Tried 3 different browser, won't work in any of them. Tried restarting.

What's going on?

The video loads, I hit play, nothing happens.

I have no audio at all and my music player (Clementine) won't play any tracks.

Again, I hit play and nothing happens.

Can't be a coincidence!

That's what I'd try - check for Flash updates.

WIndows 10.

Tried to install linux (Ubuntu) on my new computer and it hated my graphics card, couldn't get my dual monitor setup working and it crashed every 5 minutes.

Oh, in which case you've probably got a horrific virus and are almost certainly currently broadcasting child donkey porn to all and sundry.

Linux is, as the Americans say, a total dumpster fire for desktop use. Let it SM your TPs, HT your TPs, and SQ your Ls; that's what it's good at.

I was just going to suggest he asked some people who work with computers for a living, rather than a bunch of internet freaks.
