    This type of situation occurs frequently whenever YouTube

    temporarily shuts down some of its servers to update stuff.

    If your YouTube seems slow or stuck, and you get strange

    messages on your computer screen or advice from people

    to update, change or install things:....DON'T. It's never good

    to fool around with things you may not be comfortable with

    or knowledgeable about -- such as java scripts, flash players,

    firewall settings, antivirus utilities, pop-up blockers, registries,

    or even different browsers. Absolutely none of those things

    are going to help you, because your computer/YouTube was

    working perfectly fine before, right?

    The first and best option should ALWAYS be to try and work

    with what you already have -- rather than disabling, erasing,

    separating, uninstalling, altering, downloading, installing, or

    changing things (which will make things worse for you).

    The problem of slow or stuck downloading-buffering-playing

    will often correct itself within a few hours or by the next day.

    If it doesn't, then there may be a problem with your "cache",

    especially if you get "java script" or "flash player" messages.

    (That's why channel pages may sometimes appear normal,

    but not regular video pages.)

    Whenever YouTube seems stuck or displays strange things,

    it is best to empty your cache of all "temporary internet files",

    "cookies" and "history". Things are usually okay afterwards.

    If you're not quite sure how to do this, or if you want several

    other tips on how to make YouTube run faster (all without

    having to change anything), then please click on my avatar

    and email me. I will lead you through "cache" clearing and

    all the other tips with easy and understandable "baby steps".

    (Note: a big source of problems is Google Web Accelerator.

    If you have it, uninstall/disable it no matter what -- even if it

    contradicts my own advice).

    deleting should work...

    by the way... these will help you...

    1. Use Opera browser, it will load faster and smoother, and re-install latest flash.

    get the latest flash player, and install it.. make sure all the browsers are NOT running during installation...


    2. It could be due to slow connection or high traffic.

    Try watching it during off peak hours, the video will be smoother.

    Or you could watch it offline smoothly... try using 'zillatube' .

    It works well - Just yahoo or google search "zillatube" to get it.

    Do you have webaccelerator or something like that?

    I was having the same problem and found an answer back in the archives that suggested that might be the problem.

    I turned it off and voila! I could view youtube again

    You need to install the latest version of Adobe flash player to watch all the videos online, like on youtube, facebook and much more.
