Windows 7: YouTube video play freezes

Sorry, the original poster in the threads said "Can this be caused by a recently installed router?". It's hard to keep track when you piggyback on another thread.

But the common would be the router. Is the modem separate? Can you connect directly to the modem and test?

Good question. I'll have to try that and bypass my wireless router. But it's been working fine in the past... and no changes. So I don't expect to find any issue there.

I'm thinking that since my iPad has no issue, it must be flash related.

Agree about tagging onto an existing post, but I figured the issues might be related and thought it worth adding to the existing thread. Perhaps that wasn't a good idea afterall.

Since you started here the same month as me, I'll let it slide

I've learned to not accept "it's been working fine all this time, so that can't be it" Ask the BSOD team, they commonly find the cause is something unchanged for years. But eliminating possibilities is part of the process, if we eliminate the router, then we are looking at other commonalities. A Guy
