    Internet Explorer 11 + Flash 14.0.0.176 = No youtube videos

    We have hit a snag with our Flash 14.0.0.176 deployment - videos in Youtube won't play. We just get the "An error occurred, please try again later." error on every video.

    Our setup is as follows:

    IE 11
    Windows 7 SP1 64bit - with all security and critical updates installed.
    Adobe Flash 14.0.0.176 installed via MSI.

    Flash works on other sites (tested with some cool math 4 kids games), and whatever version is built into Chrome is working fine too.

    Tried clearing cookies/cache etc... Tried reinstalling Flash. Tried compatibility mode.

    Anyone else seeing this? Or fixed it somehow?

    Is sound enabled on the PC and do you have speakers plugged in ?

    This message was driving me daft until then too - I recall reading on here a thread about you now needing audio speakers plugged in because of a change to youtube a while back, I reimaged a teachers machine about 3 times over the course of a week trying to solve this, as I thought it was somehow linked to our cryptolocker protection

    Edit : Found the link to the thread - YouTube videos suddenly not playing on some computers

    It isn't that issue, sadly. I've got headphones on my PC. The other PCs are laptops and they all exhibit the same problem.

    Yeah been hit with this as well. Current workaround is to use Chrome until we can work out what is going on.

    Surprisingly, I have checked that one... Yes. I did put that it worked with other sites, and that I had tried reinstalling it in the first post...

    Out of interest, are you having issues with 4OD as well?

    4OD seems to be working fine. Well, 1:30 of adverts and a minute of video worked anyway.

    Is it Internet Explorer Enhanced Protected Mode disabling flash? When you right click on a video does it have the usual flash player context menu?

    Is the playback device set as the plug with the speakers/headphones?

    @localzuk:

    IE 11
    Windows 7 SP1 32bit - with all security and critical updates installed.
    Adobe Flash 14.0.0.176 installed via MSI.

    We have no issues at all playing flash content in internet explorer or any flash content for that matter, wonder if it could be a corrupted flash install perhaps?

    Have you tried installing the flash manually to one workstation and testing from there?

    How do you update flash via GPO or sccm?

    When I play a YouTube video in IE11 on Windows 7 or 8.1 it uses the HTML5 player, so surely it's not a Flash Player issue?

    Yup. Same problem.

    We deploy it afresh for every version, using the MSI version, via SCCM.

    Don't see how. Youtube defaults to Flash for IE11 still. To get the HTML5 version, you have to choose it in your account preferences. Its definitely a Flash issue.
