Windows 8 - Unable To Play YouTube Videos On IE 10 And Firefox
Jul 5, 2014
My browsers ie10 and firefox both suddenly stopped play the youtube videos online. I get the message an error has occurred. Please try again later. I have tried uninstalling the flash plugin and reinstalling it but the issue remains. I even reset and uninstalled my firefox. but still the same problem occurs.I have windows 8 operating system on my laptop and it is 64 bit. I was able to play all you tube videos before.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.30GHz 782/100mhz.) I
have Windows 8 64 bit. I have looked up this no sound problem on googgle and tried all recommendation to no avail. My audio card is not showing it has an issue. I have tried a headset and I am unable to hear any sound. I can play any videos on my computer but no sound. I can play YouTube on Chrome (no sound) but cant play YouTube in Firefox as it errors out This just happened this week - I don't know why. I don't remember downloading anything and I did not install any new software.
When I try in IE I get an error right on the video screen stating there is an error and to click for more info. When checking the info, I've done everything it recommends.
When I try in Firefox it will play a commercial ad but when it's finished just sits idle instead of continuing with the video.
Download from a site, like a picture or media file (music, etc.), it downloads it fully, but it still says it is still downloading even when you can see the current state such as 40.7MB out of 40.7MB completed only certain sites do this, but others don't So something is off here, and since I got this from FB and another site or more, Firefox might be having a bug issue. I tried a resetting Firefox, but it didn't do anything. Another issue that might be Firefox-related is Youtube. In this case, the viewing history doesn't show any videos. I thought it was a site issue. It could be, but it's still the case now. Since I mentioned one issue, might as well mention this one too.
On my desktop computer, when I try viewing youtube videos (and videos from some other sources) full screen, the toolbar across the bottom of screen in the desktop mode remains visible, blocking my view of (and use of) the player controls at bottom of the youtube player. All I can see is the seek bar moving as the video plays. If I put the toolbar in the AutoHide mode, then I can see (and use) the youtube player controls.
On my laptop with Windows 8, this problem does not exist. The entire player appears normally as if there were an "always on top" mode.
One difference is that the laptop had Windows 8 factory installed, while I installed Windows 8 over XP in my desktop. (That $39 deal offered at the beginning of the year was too good to pass up). Both computers have x64-based processors.
Computer comparisons: Laptop: Samsung; AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 2.70 GHz; 4.00 GB RAM, 64-bit OS Desktop: Homebuilt; AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 5050e; ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics (with latest driver); 2GB RAM; 32-bit OS
Neither computer has the toolbar in the AutoHide mode.
On some sites with the desktop computer, when I move the mouse pointer toward the left edge of the player, the seek bar retracts and I can't grab it to drag it to the right. I don't know the if laptop also has this problem.
Whenever I switch to 480p, 720p, or 1080p the video goes black and freezes. Happens in Chrome, Firefox, and IE. Don't have this problem in OSX or Win 7 via Bootcamp. Just bought a Lenovo with Win 8 stock.
I have installed windows 8.1 pro . when I watch YouTube videos and remain inactive for a while then screen gets dimmer and then turns off. I could understand when nothing was done then screen would go idle but the video is running and screen turns off ...isn't it frustrating? so how to keep screen alive while watching YouTube videos but it should turn off when pc is inactive(other cases when video is not playing) ..
Windows 8 IE 10 (All recent updates) Like to watch wood working videos on Youtube. No problems before today ,now they will not play. Been reading and some mention of ActiveX and Flashplayer settings. I have done now changes to any settings since all was working fine. What should I be looking at to fix ?
The present file format of these personal videos is: .3gp. When I try to play them in Xbox video I get this error message: Can't play because the item's file format isn't supported. Check the store to see if this item is available there. 40 apps open when I did check. Which app will play this .3gp format? I can visually play them in Windows Media Player but for some reason there's no sound & it's turned up to full volume.
After upgrading to win 8, all of my videos were being played through x-box video app. I clicked one of my videos and changed the default to win media player and now this window appears when I try to open a video.
I've searched for a resolution for this everywhere but it seems like I am the only one with this issue, whenever i try to play video in a windows 8 app I get an error or the video just loads forever... however everything else about apps work just cannot play videos inside apps :
I am using Windows 8 software and want to be able to play a series of videos in a folder consecutively, so they start automatically one after the other. However I have not seen this capability in the standard Windows 8 or Office software.
I am running a Toshiba computer with Windows 8 and Google Chrome as my default browser.
Basically, any videos from any website will load but not play, and any sounds (not necessarily just from Google Chrome) won't play either. For example, when I change the volume of my computer it does not play a tone (when it normally should). I have updated Java and Adobe Shockwave to no avail.
The problem started occurring a couple of days ago. Originally I could restart my computer and I would be fine for a while, but eventually that stopped working. I have had this computer for at least 6 months and have not had any problems with it. Also I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
I installed win 8 about 2 weeks ago and i noticed something really annoying.when i play videos on 720p in chrome (desktop) they lag. Dont lag like all the time but they lag for like 1 2 secs and then they start running smooth again. I already check for drivers and i got the newest one. I tried in IE and i dont have this problem but EI sucks big time. I know that my video card is kinda old but with windows 7. I didn't had any problems with videos on youtube even on 1080p.So is there something i can do about those lags?
I am not able to double click and install chrome/firefox the only way I can install is by right clicking and selecting run as administrator then the browser starts with a message that profile not found.
Yesterday, I decided to relocate my PC from one room to the other. Not a big deal I would assume. However, I was unable to connect to the internet with Firefox at the new location. I checked my signal strength to my router and it seemed fine. So I opened Task Manager and checked the WiFi performance chart, what I saw were very brief moments of connectivity, meaning I could connect to the internet for about 10 seconds, then it would stop, but the signal to the router would still appear strong. This would repeat constantly about once every minute or so. I've been trying to fix this for the past day and I could not find an answer anywhere. I've tried to restart everything, I've tried to reset some network settings, and I've tried messing with the local/ static IP address. I doubt it's a problem with the IP address though. On an additional note, whenever I run the Windows Network Troubleshooter, it tells me to restart my router (Which obviously didn't work).
Both Firefox 30.0 and 27.0 installed, when I do a Reply in hotmail I cannot type into the body of the msg. Only the subject line. However FF 27.0 Portable works normally. So does Opera x64 and chromium.
Today I was playing a Facebook game, and I had Youtube playing a song. I scrolling down the Youtube page to see what other songs it recommended to me and my PC crashed. After the computer restarted there was a problem with my video card drivers which was causing everything to be viewed at a different resolution. This led me to believe it was a problem with my video card drivers. Therefore, I checked ATI's website and they have a newer beta driver so I installed that. I was curious to make sure the BSOD was a video card driver issue so I fired up bluescreenviewx64. Its saying the crash was caused by tcpip.sys driver.
When I play a video in metro ie no sound could be heard but yesterday there was (hibernation). The beginning of the problem was that I had one video opened with sound then paused it opened in new tab second video with no sound while in the first there still was.
So far i restarted the computer and reinstalled adobe flash player googled a lot and not found anything.
I was looking for a way to reinstall metro ie but that didn't work as well(no info) but even though i can uninstall it.
All at once I am not able to get sound from YouTube files on websites or YouTube. On websites I get video and sound as long the file is not a YouTube file. I have tried IE10 and Firefox and still no luck. Adobe Flash plug-in is enabled and I know the sound card is working.
I have been getting this very annoying BSOD when ever I try to watch videos on a web browser or open multiple (youtube?) pages.
My default browser is google chrome but this error also occurs in firefox and internet explorer. I have tried disabling hardware acceleration but the problem still occurs. I've also replaced the RAM(memtest didn't show any errors) but that didn't solve the issue. I've also used different drivers for my GPU and the problem still occurs.
I can play graphically demanding games without a hitch but it's the browsers that are causing this problem.
I used bluescreen view to get a better idea of what's causing this and it shows that tcpip.sys is what causes the crash. A crash that occured last night was caused by ntoskrnl.exe+29652f and tcpip.sys+16bba1.
My system is a: Win 8.1 64Bit AMD Phenom II x4 955 AMD HD Sapphire 7850 8GB of DDR3 1600mhz RAM 256GB SSD Crucial MX100(OS) 320GB WD HDD(Data) 60GB SSD OCZ Vertex(Games)
And my wifi adapter is a Tenda wireless N150.
I tried using theSF diagnostic tool to capture the BSOD dump but when trying to install it said it needed framework which it was not able to download.
Quite a while ago, Google started with the pop-up messages on YouTube, asking to merge your Google+ and YouTube channel. At the time I didn't feel like it and selected that I wanted to keep both my Google+ page and my YouTube channel separate from each other on the same Gmail account.
However, on YouTube I now have two different channels. One that in fact is my Google+ profile (no videos) and the old YouTube Channel (with videos) that I already had.
How do I merge these two services from the same Gmail account to one profile?
I thought that Windows 7 search was bad until I started trying to search for my many videos in my win 8 laptop. I even used KIND:= VIDEOS but the search came up empty???? This frustration never used to happen with win XP. I tried all manner of searches and although I have hundreds of videos still the search could not find a single one. Any third party search that is at least as good as XPs? I often do searches and need to use wildcards because of the plethora of files I have. If possible I would prefer a free search application.
I use the excellent Classic Shell. With my fast booting win 8 (fast booting is the only positive thing about win 8 I have encountered so far).
