I’ve been having an issue lately with watching any Youtube videos but after some time the problem would go away. I followed instructions on Youtube for uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash Player (already working fine on other sites) but it didn’t do anything. I then deleted cookies and cleared the cache (suggestion from Youtube). All non-Youtube videos work but the Youtube player (on all sites) doesn’t work. (I’m getting a black box instead of the usual player and when I right click all I get is “about Adobe…” instead of the usual menu.

This seems to be a common problem.
Google “youtube black box”, sans quotes, and select the first item that comes up to see a discussion about this issue.
Included in the discussion are suggestions to try to fix it.

Thanks everyone. A little while after I started the thread I saw on Youtube to try adding an s so the URL reads “https…” and B”H it worked.
Dr. Pepper- When I searched for a specific video on YT and got the black box, there was no menu. The videos they had under the help section worked fine and those had the menu…
