    Anyone else have problems with youtube? Every one I click on I get the same video is no longer available. When I just watched it 15 min. before down at the fire house and came home and wanted to show my wife. I have clicked random videos does not matter. I am running a new HP pavilion laptop with vista sp1. Does youtube have vista issues?

    Thanks guys:up:

    See if you have cookies enabled for youtube. That might be the problem.

    I think Youtube went through and disabled a lot of videos that we in against copyright laws. For example a lot of clips from tv shows, movies, etc that the person who posted it did not have the rights too it.

    I had the same problem a few days ago and think that was the conclusion I came to. Try going to a completely random clip that has no copywrite though.

    Youtube = Napster. Somthing cool that came along and then was completely ruined by corporate America. They'll be charging to use it soon enough.

    Had the same problem over the weekend with a few of them. Went back and tried again a little later and they worked fine. Might want to try them again, and see if you have any better luck with it.

    I have tried all your suggestions. It does not matter what clip I hit every single one says the same thing. I snooped through the FAQ and the on line community help section and it seems others are having the same issue, but no one had any solution:sad: My wife's comp plays them fine so I guess I'll have to steal her comp. when I want to look at youtube. She has my older laptop and it runs xp, and all the guys who have the problem are on vista.

    I just went through and tried a bunch of copyrighted vids and I didn't have a problem. Maybe it's an issue with your Adobe Flash Player? Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling the latest version and see if that works.

    1. Uninstall the flashplayer using Adobe's uninstall tool

    2. Restart your computer

    3. re-install adobe's latest flash player

    Hope that helps
