Youtube not loading correctly on all browsers

September 13, 2010 at 21:22:43
Specs: Windows XP, AMD 6400 x2, 2gigs of RAM
Youtube has always worked fine with my computer, but today seems to have glitched somehow.

I'm bad at describing how it looks, so I took a screenshot:

It looks like that on all browsers I have, Firefox (which is my main browser), Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. The site loads very slow and videos also do not load or are sluggishly slow. Other computers/laptops in my household load Youtube fine.

I have cleared cache, cookies, site preferences, -basically everything in the 'clear recent history' option under tools. (In Firefox.) So for the life of me I cannot figure out the issue.

Anyone have any ideas on what to do? I was on the verge of re-installing windows but I thought that would be a bit extreme lol.

Thanks in advance.

I noticed Youtube would always hang when Firefox said "Loading" or something to that effect. So I searched about and came up with some weird fix that says to add:

to the Windows HOSTS file. Odd, but it seems to work for now.

I'm wondering if this is another manifestation of the problem I had with YouTube thumbnails and Google images. If so I worked out fixes for both IE8 and Firefox. It related to the router firewall thinking it was under attack and was fine if you turned off the router firewall..

Just to see if it is the same thing, in Firefox type about:config in the address line then bypass the warning screen. Go down to network.http.max-connections and change the value from its defaulf of 30 to 9 or less and restart the machine. If this helps I'll give you the IE fix too, if not just restore the value to 30.

We all live on a ball.
