Okay, I've got a problem that's really been bugging me lately.
YouTube will not play videos in Firefox (3.6.3) on my netbook. YouTube will play in IE8, Safari, and Google Chrome...but not Firefox. I get the silly "An error occured, please try again later." message where the video should be.
YouTube works fine on my laptop. Same browser, same addons, same operating system.
Things I've tried so far:
Refresh the page...nope
move the slider on the video to force another part of the video to load....nada
try different video...tried 20+ with same result
tried different quality video...360, 480, 720...no effect
log out of YouTube...zip
log back into YouTube...zilch
clear Firefox's cache...fail
start Firefox in Safe Mode....EPIC fail (same error message as always)
reinstall Flash player....no
reinstall Firefox....nice try
install Firefox 3.6.4 beta...yeah right
I could potentially watch YouTube in another browser, but I use Firefox so much, I don't like having to switch browsers just to watch a video. Besides, without Firefox (and my Adblock Plus addon), I have to see the ads YouTube puts up...I hate ads.
So, why do YouTube videos not play in Firefox on my netbook? This is driving me nuts.
I don't like not being able to watch videos when I'm not in front of my laptop.
Anything else I can try besides a reformat and clean install?
