hii last week only vevo videos on youtube will stay on the loading black screen forever and it just wont play. i know that if you clear your browsing history and cache it should work and it did work for a little but it doesnt seem to work anymore, however i found a solution but i dont know how to do those steps , here is the post i saw that is suppose to fix the problem:

Level 1
Problem: Vevo videos just won't load at all - black screen, infinitely loading

Diagnosis: Vevo videos play an ad in front of them. If you block the ad, the video will hang infinitely.

Solution: Disable any ad-blocking programs. If you don't have an ad-blocking program, check to see if you've blocked ad companies in your HOSTS file (windows/system32/drivers/etc/HOSTS).

For me, the HOSTS file turned out to be the culprit. I've been using the MSVP hosts file for some while without this problem, but now apparently Vevo is using advertisers who are on the MSVP block list.

Level 1
What domain is being blocked tho?
I get my hosts file from mvs and there are thousands in it.
I would like to keep the majority blocked while unblocking vevo.

Level 1
I despise anything VEVO!! money grabbing mofos! (they have SO many ads per video play it's just crazy!! = money, money, money for them and wasting the users time to load all the crap before even seeing 1 second of a video!)

look for these: googleads.g.doubleclick.net #[pagead-dclk.l.google.com] pagead2.googlesyndication.com #[Google AdWords] adm.fwmrm.net

and place a hash+space "# " in front so they look like this:

# googleads.g.doubleclick.net #[pagead-dclk.l.google.com]
# pagead2.googlesyndication.com #[Google AdWords]
# adm.fwmrm.net

I dont know how to access windows/system32/drivers/etc/HOSTS and where to find these: googleads.g.doubleclick.net #[pagead-dclk.l.google.com] pagead2.googlesyndication.com #[Google AdWords] adm.fwmrm.net

Hello wenFD,

You could download HostsXpert 4.4 which is a nice portable program to backup, restore, and edit your host file.
  • Unzip the download and double click on HostXpert.exe to start the program.
  • In the right pane you will see your current host file.
First, backup your current host file
  • Click "Make Writable" in the upper left pane.
  • Click "Backup/Restore" then "Create Backup." Click "OK" to confirmation. The backup was created in the folder where HostXpert resides should you need to restore it.
Now to edit your host file
  • Arrow down the right pane and find the entrys you wish to delete.
  • Right mouse click on the entry and make your selection.
  • When you have finished editing, click "Make Read Only?" from the top left pane before exiting.
