    For some reason, I can't watch some Youtube videos.

    Here is one
    YouTube - Incurable Collector - Star Wars

    I can hear it but I can't see the video. When I move my mouse over it, it sees the time & I get after-images.

    I can see some videos. The front paged ones show fine. I am using IE 8. I can view it in Firefox. I don't think I ever had a problem before. Was there an update that is screwing with it. I have reinstalled Flash & got the same issue.

    'Just use firefox' shouldn't be the answer.

    Firefox no just use chrome. Chrome is the answer.

    All kidding aside i would recommend clearing out browser data and restart IE. If that does not work reboot your computer. These steps can remedy many browser issues.

    That seems to have solved it. Thanks. I've never had it happen before. Wonder what I did differently this time that caused it.

    I hate now how we're stuck with all these damn advertisements on YouTube. It used to be add-free. :(

    Guess it didn't fix it. I watched one video but the same issue happened on the next one. I'm not going to clear browser data for each video. Back to square one.

    Found a weird thing. If I go into the person's account (or their uploads area), the videos play. However, just clicking on the video while not in their 'area', it has the issue.

    Is anyone else having this problem?
