Yesterday - watching videos on Youtube with no problems.
Today - videos from youtube load as black squares. There is no video, no audio, and no progress bar.
Started trying to resolve the issue by installing the latest version of Flash. Didn't work.
Next, as per posts I found during research, disabled hardware acceloration with the flash player settings. Didn't work.
Then, I reset my browser (IE version 8). Didn't work.
Next, I upgraded my browser to IE 9. Didn't work.
Cleared my history, cache, etc. Didn't work.
Reset my modem and router. Still not working.
It should be noted, however, that Youtube has a test video and I can play that one just fine (strange!). If I try to play any of the "real" videos, I get nothing.
I found post after post after post on this and have tried all of their recommendations (outlined above). Have any of you ever heard of this and if so, do you know how to fix it?
My OS is Windows 7 64bit.
