This appeared when I tried to watch some Newegg videos, others played fine. I clicked the link in the snip, installed Adobe Flash Player...twice with no change.
Some other YT videos are the same way, some play, some won't.

Could be that you need the plug-in. Adobe Flash Player Plugin 11.5.502.135 - Download

It could also be a browser issue...if using IE....go from 64 bit to 32 bit.

Try clearing all cookies, browsing history, temp internet files, etc. I actually had the same problem a couple days ago and that fixed it.

Thanks, it was my fault, I had Active X filtering turned on. Turned it off and all is well.

YouTube won't play
No YouTube video will play, I get the error below: Clicking "Learn More" opens two tabs with the same info. I have uninstalled Flash and installed the newest, 14.0.0.125 and is enabled. I thought maybe it was an IE11 update from June 10th, but uninstalling that was no help either.

Any time I start a YouTube video play (or as a matter of fact other Internet video), it starts to play and stops and freezes after a few seconds and will not restart the computer unless I go to Task Manager, delete the item and restart the process. Can this be caused by a recently installed router?
