Well, it's been three days now. First it was slow. Then that "Java/Adobe Flash" trouble happened several times. Last time I installed Adobe Flash, and now I just can't enter the site.

Any other site, no problem, but YouTube just won't load, no matter the program I use (Firefox, IE or Chrome).

Any tips, there?

Might be a java or a DNS problem. What's the exact error message you get? A 404 no page error or something different?

Edit- I'd try clearing out the cookies in your browser and check to see if javascript is turned on, in Firefox that's found under options/content.

I'm not sure what the issue is either, as it happened to me two nights ago. I'd try to click on a link and it would say that I either have Java disabled or do not have the latest Flash. I installed the latest Flash, but still no joy.

I cleaned cookies, temp internet files, cache and every other temp area of my PC, still no joy.

I went back to YouTube the next day at work and at home that night and all was well. I'm suspecting it is something on their end, now that you have posted about it as well. The only thing I can think of that I did prior to having an issue, was updating my anti-virus program and firewall, but they did not seem to be the issue either.

BTW - I'm running XP SP2 and IE6 @ home and XP SP3 and IE6 @ work.

I get exactly the same message even though I have the latest version of flash and java installed (and running correctly!!!)

Im thinking its something to do with using XP with IE6 maybe.

Not tried fire fox though.

Try loading the site with your firewall disabled, that was the only way I could get youtube to work at one point (Norton firewall)

No joy with any of those. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I get no message at all, it just never ends loading the site, the bar stops progressing and all remains blank.

Did you try other various country YouTube addys as well?

Does Google video work?

"Transferring data from s.ytimg.com..."

And all stops.

Try to Ping Youtube.

To ping:

1. Open command prompt (ie. click Run on your Windows Start menu and type in cmd)

2. In command prompt, type in:

ping www.youtube.com (http://www.youtube.com)

3. And then read the ping results. If your network restricts access to YouTube.com, you'll see *Request Time Out*

If you can't get a ping, it will narrow down the possible causes...

I get pings. It may be some thing with that flash thing, s.ytimg.com, and my ISP.
