YouTube videos: "If playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device"

Posted

I installed Firefox after the new update, and some YouTube videos (usually longer ones) won't load and show the error message in the title. I have Windows 10 N, but I installed the Media Feature Pack, and Flash is also installed and up to date. I have no trouble loading videos in Chrome, so it seems to be a Firefox thing.

Thanks in advance.
