    Whenever I start up youtube and click a video on my pc, the screen briefly flashes black, then turns back on. I am wondering if this might be something to do with the computer or the software.

    Screen flashes black when viewing a YouTube video

    Just purchased a new monitor (HP Pavilion 22cw IPS LED Backlit Monitor), using HDMI video input, and whenever I play a YouTube video the screen briefly flashes black, and does so again shortly after the video ends or is paused.

  4. Screen Briefly Flashes Black When Starting a Youtube Video.

    Youtube black screens.

    Well something interesting has happened, yesterday watching youtube videos was no problems, yet today when I try to watch a video, any video it shows as a black screen and the audio works.

    After a little google search, I found that watching a video on the issue allowed me to see it, weird I thought as previously no video worked. I then click a random video on the suggested list and that too works.

    I then type a search in youtube and bam! black screen again.

    After a little more help from google, I found that disabling adblock plus allowed me to watch videos with no problems again + if I disable then re-enable all videos would work, although for a limited time, as after a few minutes when I switched to a new video it started again.

    Edit: If I logged out of my youtube account, there would be no more black screens on videos, although there would also be ads...

    My fix was this: I uninstalled adblock plus and instaled ublock origin, seems to have done the trick.

    My question is what was the cause for this?

    Also previously adblock would not block all ads on some sites, like techpowerup for example, ublock origin also fails to do this, although adblock managed to do this when I first installed. I know the fix for my add problems is a uninstall with iobit uninstaller and then reinstall, a simple reinstall does not work and I won't bother installing iobit just for this site. (ublock origin allows me to select bothering things and block them manually)

    Edit: Also when I noticed adblock was not blocking all ads, google suggested to disable allow non-intrusive ads, I did that and it worked, I didn't give it further thought and the next day when I connect, ads were still shown on the site. Enabling-disabling the option after this had no further effects on the problem, as neither did a normal uninstall-reinstall of firefox.

    My addons for firefox were: Adblock plus, adblock popup addon and disconnect.
    They now are: Ublock origin, adblock popup addon and disconnect.

    I also use bitdefender free edition for antivirus and malwarebytes anti malware for on-demand scanning.
    Scanning with both revealed no suspicious or infected files.

    This thread is more like what are your thoughts on this?
