I am experiencing a problem with being unable to watch videos.

Posted

For the past several months I've been experiencing problems with my videos not playing, mostly youtube. Usually I can get the video playing, but today it happened again and I've tried a lot of things but I still can't get videos to play. It pretty much is a blank screen with an endless loading circle (or whatever you want to call that).
