Do you by any chance have RealPlayer installed? There are reports that it interferes with Flash video playback until you disable the RealPlayer plugin in the web browser you want to play Flash videos on.

I disabled the Real Player plugin, but still can't watch you tube videos. I can see video images by running my cursor over the videos progress bar at bottom of video, so I know videos are loading, but won't play.

When I do get an error message, the screen gets a little snowy, and it says an error occurred, please try again later. Then it says, learn more. When I click on learn more it talks about upgrading flash player, etc., which I have already done.

Uninstall Flash using the uninstaller here:

Get the latest version. You have to get it from each browser. Firefox and Chrome both use an "addon" which is different for each of them.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
