Windows 7: Youtube doesn't load tumbdnails, keeps loading forever

Okay so testing Zenmate:

Without Zenmate installed typing a non-existent domain into the address bar gives the following screen from COMODO Secure DNS

Doing the same with Zenmate gives the following screen:

Youtube doesn't load tumbdnails, keeps loading forever-zenmate.jpg

So it's using it's own DNS Lookup regardless of the network adapter's settings.

If the flash player fix doesn't work try changing DNS Lookup Provider.

Open Network & Sharing Centre - click your network adapter and try the following settings. (Or choose your own DNS Lookup Provider - just as long as it's not the default one provided by your ISP)

For good measure - switch off your machine and reset your router.

Then see if there's any difference afterwards.

Hi:


See here: Youtube doesn't load tumbdnails, keeps loading forever ? mozillaZine Forums
Looks like the same topic posted in a different forum?

This could get complicated, confusing or even contradictory?

"And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming..."

Cheers,

I posted there first but then I realized its not a Firefox issue so I came here.

Any way I tried Callender's fix and it worked! It was always set to obtain DNS server automatically and never had issues with it. I guess I need to save this address for later? I have a dynamic ip from my ISP, not sure how that is related..

Yes - not a firefox issue since it affected all browsers. Well done for fising it. You might want to mark this thread solved to help other users with the same problem.

Re: DNS Server. You don't need to keep those settings. You can go back to your ISP's settings by allowing it to autodetect. Might need a reboot though. I think the problem was DNS Cache corruption and changing provider fixes the cache.

I actually switch between several providers but prefer ones that block connection known dodgy sites that serve malware.

Thanks for the help. Actually letting it autodetect and going back to the ISP's DNS brings back the same YT problem, its now permanent for me. 1 last question, if I call the ISP would they be able to do something about it? would they assign me to a different DNS server? for now Im using a public DNS server and its working fine. Again thanks to all who helped.

I guess if enough people report it -they'll fix it. If everyone using the same ISP uses the same settings then things can get very slow. It's always better not to use your ISP's settings anyway.
