nerds help, youtube not working

YouTube has stopped working on my computer. The page loads, the video loads, and then it won't play. I can even click along the timeline and get stills at that point, but I can't get it to move. I've tried clearing the cache and browser history (and now adarq.org looks weird and blue) and reinstalling Flash player but it's not working.

FUCK.

Edit: Vimeo also not working. The MLB player is, though.

You should check your bank account.

I would recommend the flash uninstall/reinstall but i see you already did that  :huh:
Did you do it both for the windows app and the browser plugin? Also what happens with other browsers?
woot

in firefox the video will start and play for a few seconds and then stop. if i click on the little tracker in the timeline it starts again but always stops again after a seemingly random but short (5-10) number of seconds. that's happened a couple of times in chrome as well but generally the videos just never start moving.

Maybe your computer is out of memory and doing swapping or something similar?

definitely not a memory issue, everything else is working fine and it's my work computer -- there isn't that much saved on it. no idea what swapping is.

fwiw YT works fine on my home computer (OS X).

dno, don't generally deal with that stuff.. but, if you installed any updates lately, could be the culprit. Something may have wrecked your codecs/flash support. The blue thing on this forum makes it sounds like your computer might be a bit wrecked though.. Could also be hardware related, maybe your video card is dying slowly. Try downloading a video etc and playing it in VLC perhaps? If it's happening in all of the online video players, i'd try VLC.. if it happens in VLC, not good.. perhaps then try checking for updates/checking drive/repairing disk, dno.

pC!
