No here on SWGFL.
is anyone else experiencing a problem with youtube?
all of a sudden we are receiving the message when trying to play a clip:
I have checked IE settings which appear to be fine, and reinstalled flash player but still the same.
No here on SWGFL.
ive been pulling my hair out about this for a while.. it seems to affect people randomly, yet if you go to a site with a youtube video on it works fine!
ggrrrr ive been suggesting google video to anyone who has this problem as it searches youtube anyway
I got this when I updated from v9 to v10 of flash player a while back. Switched back and it works fine.
we did have this at one point last year and upgrading flash player seemed to sort it. however, this time it is affecting all workstations and all accounts and cannot seem to work out why!
Try ctrl +F5 in Ie a couple of months ago for a spate of machine clears the problem up nicely

Hope that helps
I suspect most of you probably have a proxy, and proxy servers (depending what they run) can vary greatly in performance. A good test is to get a laptop, replicate the problem in school, then take it home and see if still have the same problem.
It could either be your ISP or your proxy, or indeed a combination of both.
We have access to Youtube and normally its because the flash player is not the right version, quick update and its sorted.
BUT we had one day when all pc's where it did work didn't and this was down to the Grid changing something and changing back the next day.
Only had a few complaints but was more annoying as I was called to Assembly by a DH to sort it in front of 300 kids!
Have you tried clearing IE's cache?
Ctrl+F5 worked! I don't think the problem is ISP or proxy related here, as not all machines have the problem, and some machines that were fine now aren't. The problem seems to come in waves, possibly due to changes to something at YouTube (as suggested above) or Flash. I'll have a look at some of the other suggestions here too, but for the moment all is back to working order. Maybe we should let the folks in the YouTube Community Forums know the solutions too!!
