Youtube videos stop playing afer a few seconds

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by Green_Manelishi, Feb 8, 2013.

  1. Regardless of the browser: IE, FF, Chrome, Opera, Safari. Any/all videos stop playing after a few seconds. I have added nothing except an ethernet switch but even disconnecting the switch has no positive effect. Google results bang on about updating Flash but I am not being informed of a necessary update, and everything was fine the last time (a day/two ago) I played a video. Any ideas?

    It looks like this page crashed.
    Download and install update to fix this problem.

    When I try to update it says pluginupdate.exe is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous. So of course I wont download it. What next? Thanks for the help guys!

    Run good anti virus software lately?
  4. I have MS SE running all the time. Once per week I scan the PC. I also run Malware, Spybot each week. Spyware blast runs as well.

    It happens to me too. At work or home. Win XP (home) Win7 (work). Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, all the same. What works for me is when it stops, usually about a minute or so into an average music vid is slide the button thingy to the end for a couple seconds then push it back to a few seconds before the stop point and it usually will download normally. You will see download filling in as it should ahead of the thingy.
    It must be a youtube issue.
