Can't View Embedded YouTube Videos on My Computer

Hi.

Weird thing. This started last week. I get grey box when I get to the YouTube videos. I use to be able to see them on the message board. But no longer. Any computer experts out there that have an answer?

Did you recently update the Flash plugin? If so then that may be your problem, the newest Adobe Flash plugin for some reason doesn't work right, I tried it and had to switch back to a lower version because it wouldn't play a lot of vids on many sites. If that's not it then look for your most recent changes to your browser, anything about multimedia settings specifically. You may have to adjust those, but without seeing the system it's hard to remotely assist if not a common problem because of different configurations in hardware and software (one problem with having so many choices now).

If your at work, it is possible that it is the web filter they have installed.

KK I think has identified it. I can't get Flash in Opera 9.62 on Ubuntu Gutsy, but it works fine with Firefox 2.0.0.19 (I don't like Firefox 3.0 it seems to be a bit bloated). A downgrade in Flash might well be the answer.

I might have. I'll look to see what it is I have and if I can revert back to an older version. Hope it works. I'll keep you posted.
