guys, many times a day YouTube is locking up on me, some times it takes a minute or 2 to load/play a video,, and many times a video just wont load/play, but if I open a new tab that same video will load/play, but not every time,,
some times if I clear my browser and retry the video will load/play, yet some times it wont,,,

I get messages (on the video) from YouTube telling me to restart my computer if the video wont open,,

some times the YouTube page will turn all black and I can only see the video, some times the video will play and some times it wont, even if I refresh the page it will stay black, the page stays black and I only see the video,,

it never did this before, this has been going on for a while

BTW, YouTube has also locked up on me on the TV, but only a couple times in the last 2 weeks !!

what's up with all this, is it my router, YouTube, or my provider ?? it has only happened on YouTube !!

thank you for your help guys !!

Jim

I googled "you tube locking up" and found a few tutorial videos, some are directed for Chrome users, others are for Windows 10.... fixable problem no doubt, but the funny bad news is they are You Tube videos.

Try re-booting/re-setting your router.....if you use a hub/switch, cycle the power on that....

Clear browser cache, etc. on your computer.

Also, you might try going back to a Windows "restore point" in which this wasn't occurring.....perhaps even do this step first.

Don't know what else to suggest at this time.

Jim....a hub or switch...is a device that allows you to "fan out" your Ethernet cabling from your router....to the myriad of home computers in your home...

A switch is better/faster(as it talks to only 1 output port at a time)....1 Ethernet cable in(from your router)...and then it provides maybe 8 Ethernet outputs...budget dependent...

To reboot a switch is easy....cycle it's power....lol

EE, thanks for that info, but I don't have a Hub,, but I did reset my router, I feel things pop up a bit faster but YouTube is no better,

but I have another question, this is my new computer, it has Windows Defender on it, I was told by my friend that Spy-Bot will not work on the same system with Windows Defender, would you know if this is true ??

thanks !!!

I don't know if that's true or not.

At least you now know how to reset your router....every now and then, they need a reboot....

With the YT issue, try googling that question about YouTube and see what comes up.....maybe somebody else has a solution to that problem....
