  1. Youtube videos not playing after being left idle


    So I'm having a strange problem on my computer that I can't seem to fix. Youtube videos will not play after being left idle, on the videobar, it will show that the video is loading, but it wont play even if it says it is. I can't reinstall windows because I am dualbooting linux and I don't have the Windows bootloader to go into Recovery options, and even if I could, I don't want to uninstall Linux because it's fun to have another OS to use. Does anybody have a fix for this problem?

    EDIT: I can fix it after restarting, but I've been doing that solution for days and it is annoying. It also affects all browsers. For example. if it happens in Chrome, I cant watch videos in Firefox

    :)

  2. youtube wont work in microsoft edge

    Having the same issues. After update to Windows 10 YouTube will not play using Edge - an error occurred please try again later. Trying again later never helps. YouTube plays perfectly in Google Chrome. My video MP4 files captured with a camera now only
    play intermittently. Sound plays but there's no picture, just a black screen. Refresh helps very infrequently, and only for the video being viewed. Selecting another video file gets the sound and black screen again. Tried clearing cache and opening New in
    Private Window without success. Ugh. The fact that video DOES play once in a while and YouTube plays on Chrome suggests that the problem is not hardware related - it's the MS products...
