The probelem


I'am unable to play youtube videos on any of the devices that connect to my Wifi network , this includes devices runing the following O.S


1) Mac OS version 10.9.3


2) Andriod 4.3


3) Windows 7


The site opens up perfectly however when i play any video the screen shows the following


" An error occured, please try again later. Learn More "



The above mentioned devices are able tp however play videos on the internet which are on other video hosting sites ( Dailymotion etc)


The probelem is a recent one and following may be the cause


1) I recently installed a Seagate wireless HD , my seagate wireless HD is unable to connect to the internet using the Wifi either, however it is able to create its own Wifi which i have been able to acess with the above mentioned devices

After installing the HD and failing to connect to the internet , i had tried to play youtube videos and there was no probelem


2) I recently got a Samsung Wifi Link stick so as to enable me to use my Wireless Hard Drive on my T.V, i have managed to do this as well, i.e wirelessely stream videos from the wireless HD to my T.V




On my wired Desktop which also runs on Windows 7 , the Youtube videos work perfectly.

I have further tried to disconnect the Wireless link stick as well as switch off the Wireless HD (go back to condition previous to this probelem) and then try and play youtube videos on the wireless network , but have met with the same result as outlined above.

("An error occured, please try again later. Learn More")




Any help for the above will be greatly appreciated!
