For probably a few years now, I have been getting annoying and persistant "An error has occurred." messages on YouTube videos, and I have to refresh the page several times before it works again. If I leave it alone, after a while the audio will start to play, even though the video is still on the error screen. Also, on other places of the web, non-YouTube videos sometimes play, but without any sound.


I have tried virtually everything possible that I could think of, and that my techie friends could suggest. This includes, doing fresh, completely clean uninstall/reinstalls of FireFox, Adobe, Java, and anything else having to do with video playback, using specific detailed instructions. I tried tinkering with add-ons, I tried the cookies cleaning thing, I use CCleaner frequently to ensure my computer is clean and free of registry errors. I have an anti-virus (Microsoft Security Essentials) protecting me, so this can't be virus/maleware-related. I have tried different browsers such as Opera and Chrome, and they still have the same problem. I even got a new router and network card recently, and that didn't fix it, thinking it was an Internet-related problem.


I am out of ideas anymore, and was wondering if someone could give me some help here. Thanks.
