    Youtube videos stopping immediately after playing

    I'm not sure if its related to our content filter or adobe flash or youtube. When playing videos on youtube you get the first frame or so and then the video stops with a message saying "An error has occurred"

    HTML5 works ok. We are using the latest IE11, Adobe flash 12.0.0.77 and smoothie is up to date. I've googled and the error seems to be quite specific to the users reporting them and not really helpful to me.

    Dear Teachers,

    Please be aware that You tube have made some changes on their website recently,

    If you try to watch a you tube video in Internet explorer and computer has no sound it will give an error ( as pictured below)
    *Please note the volume icon at the very bottom right hand corner is RED (and so has a problem)

    To work around this problem you can do any of the following:


    1) plugging in your speakers correctly
    2) Making sure your volume is turned up
    3) Try using google chrome instead of Internet explorer

    If you still have experience problems please report it via the desktop icon.

    Hmm I'll give that a test out. I'm not sure if thats the problem though because although the desktops don't have speakers (they have onboard sound and drivers installed) the promethean board pc does and its effected. I'll go and investigate further with this info.

    Cheers.

    Unless an active device is plugged in windows 7 doesn't start the audio subsystem so you will get this error.

    This is my solution. I've tried it today and it works. It just tricks the system into thinking something is plugged in.
