I just installed my new computer and Youtube videos play a couple seconds on it then stop. I'm using Firefox. For each video I get the message: "An error occurred, please try again later." I have tried all eight suggested fixes listed by Youtube:
- Try again after 30 minutes
In most cases, the video should start working again in about 30 minutes. If that doesn’t work, try the following tips.
- Reload the page
On many browsers, you can press the F5 key or Command+R keys on your keyboard to reload the current page.
- Change your video’s quality
Click the gear icon in the corner of the video player and select a lower quality setting, like 240p or 360p. Wait for the buffer bar to start loading before clicking play in the video player.
- Close other tabs or windows
If you have multiple tabs or windows open in your browser, try closing them.
- Upgrade your browser
If you'd like the best YouTube viewing experience, upgrade to the most recent version of your browser.
- Update your Flash Player
- Clear your cache and cookies
Clearing your cache and cookies can improve the speed and performance of your browser.
I shut off the Youtube ads. The videos may have been playing before I shut the ads off. I don't remember.
Thanks for any replies.
