I suddenly cannot watch online videos. On YouTube, it says "an error occurred." On my own site, which has embedded videos, the frame doesn't even show up. On Colbert and the Daily Show I just get a white screen.
Only thing I've done that is unusual is today plugging in a VGA to HDMI cable from PC to TV. Didn't work, but restarted my computer while cable was plugged in. That's the only thing out of the ordinary lately.
Videos play fine from my hard drive. I'm downloading newest version of FF, but I don't think that's going to help. Any ideas? This doesn't sound like any of the problems I saw previously listed in the forum.

Hello TinyCat :welcome:

1.Can you please tell us the make and model of your computer.
2.How long have you had this probem?
3.Have you tried a system restore to a point prior to the issue? http://www.howtogeek...system-restore/
4.Tried updating your video card drivers and your flash player?

Here is a link that will help you with a clean install of adobe flash.

Let us know how things turn out.
