    Hi,

    Sometime over the last couple of weeks, the embedded YT videos on MLP play the audio but do not show the video on my PC (just a black square while audio plays). I need to go to YT itself to see the video.

    I have not (intentionally) changed any settings on my PC, and it is a Dell with Windows 8.

    Any idea on what happened and how I can fix it?

    Thanks.

    Not sure why that happened. Try refreshing your web browser next time you get a black YT video. If it still happens, try using a different web browser.

    Thanks will do. Currently using IE at home but will try Chrome and Firefox.

    Interestingly, it works well on a different computer using IE, but it's not Windows 8.

    This is a strange situation.

    Works properly on Chrome but IE 10 with Windows 8 and latest version of Flash just not showing the video.

    I did everything on this page Flash Player Issues | Windows 8 but still no luck.

    A real mystery. I prefer IE to Chrome so I would like to figure this out.

    Thanks.

    This did the trick.

    In case anyone else has this problem, here is what worked for me.

    From this page Why don

    Not a clue what it means but at least embedded videos are now working as expected.

    I've had this problem with the laptop at home - I can hear, but can't see, videos embedded in a forum like this, but if I just go to YouTube I can see it. I'll see if this works for me. thanks.
