    Default Why would YouTube not be working on my computer?

    I can open a video and then I get maybe 10 second of it, then the video stops and the picture is frozen and it never comes back...

    Try closing whatever browser you are using, reopening and trying again. I don't mean just closing out the window. Shut the browser entirely. I have that problem sometimes with Safari, and that fixes it usually.

    Default firefox

    I recently started having trouble viewing youtube videos (they won't even start, I just get a black screen). I ended up having to download firefox and using that brower instead of IE to view videos.

    Well, your first problem is you were using Internet Exploder.

    @OP- I'd suggest you upgrade your flash player also if this happens to all videos.

    As said above, make sure both your browser and players have the latest updates installed. FireFox will become erratic if out-of-date.

    Is that on your computer or a mobile device like iPad or iPhone?

    Laptop, wireless router. But for the past month or so Youtube demanded that I update the adobe flash, I download it and it lasts until I log off.
    So frustrating.

    Well Mr. PoPo fixed it by just rebooting my computer - sigh, why didn't I think of that?! I use Chrome, fwiw...
