For some reason, though in the past this didn't happen, my YouTube videos will not play, they just load. The only thing that shows up on the YT video is that little circular loading logo. I've looked at YT's FAQ and it's not the firewall or anything.

Please help me. :]]

YouTube has regular server outages due to the amount of data that people request from them in the form of videos.
Best leave it for the time being and try again later.

Hm..Well honestly it only does it to some videos. It doesn't do it to some of the videos in my favorites but some others it does. So it's just the server?

More than likely. Videos don't all live on one server on YouTube, they're spread around a few of them. Therefore if one server falls over for any reason, all the videos on that server won't play.
