    I've been trying to get this to work for ages :)

    go on youtube, and in the address bar, change http to https :)

    The S stands for secure

    I tried EVERYTHING. Nothing worked. but I asked the same question and someone answered;

    once you,re on youtube, add the letter ''s'' to HTTP,

    so; https ..

    and then you can chose a video and it will play ! It worked for me... its really the only thing that worked. I've been trying for hours.!

    Youtube crashed, that's why..

    HI check the Security settings in ur Internet Options in ur Control Panel. Click Start then Control Panel and then Internet Options. Make sure ur sliders are on Medium when u click the Security Tab at the top and the Privacy tabs at the top. Also, make sure u don't have a " Pop Up Blocker " on ur Browser in the toolbar u will see Settings click on that and then uncheck the Pop Up Blocker. Try that !!!

    They are updating it. It's going to come back don't worry!

    New feature:


    The 6 words I just wrote are going to appear tomorrow on your screen below every video on Youtube.

    Maybe you need to install Java too?

    And also maybe it COULD be YouTube because that happened to me before. It will go away eventually.
