Windows 7: What is it with YouTube?

What is it with YouTube?

Lately, depending on the time of day, I have problems with YouTube. The icon that usually shows up in the lower right corner of the thumbnail that allows you to add it to your "Watch Later" playlist has disappeared. I see the time-marker, but when I hover, the time goes away and there's no icon to allow you to add it to your list. (If you click there, it starts the clip. I tried.) Other times of the day, it works as advertised. I thought it was a change (like removing the "Remove Watched Videos" button), but the problem re-occurs nearly daily.

Flash is up-to-date, as of yesterday. This happens in FF and Chrome. I updated flash on both browsers. There've been more reboots than I can count since I started noticing this.

Let me know if there's other variables you'd like to know about, or if this happens to you, and how you fix it.

I'm having playback issues with Youtube, and no other video site. I'm guessing they're doing some overhaul or whatever to their player, and it's not affecting enough people for it to have become a big thing yet. I haven't seen the issues you mention, but I haven't checked- I can barely watch even one video through right now.

I've tested with 2 separate PCs, updated Firefox and Flash, tested with IE, restarted, disabled hardware acceleration, NOTHING worked, so I'm betting this isn't on our end.

Oh well, at least I don't get that "use Youtube as" popup 10 times a day anymore.
