Every YouTube video says "An error has occurred, please try again later."

Posted

Hello,

Recently I cannot seem to load any YouTube videos on the first try. Sometimes they will load after numerous refreshings, but for the most part they will always show the error message after loading for a while. I have tried deleting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, trying in safe mode, disabling all plug-ins, using a flash-blocking add-on, and nothing has seemed to work. YouTube also seems to work fine for Safari and Chrome.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have already read that article and unfortunately it didn't help. YouTube works fine with Safari and Chrome, and none of my roommates are having the same issue.

Khaleel,

Unfortunately neither for those seem to work either. I noticed that YouTube worked fine on Firefox on my university's network, so perhaps the problem is with my ISP? I currently use Time Warner Cable.

Your System Details does not show a player. What are you using?

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
