"An error occurred, please try again later." (youtube)

I've been having this problem for a few days now and just can't seem to able to fix it. It's extremly annoying not being able to watch any video on youtube.

Whenever I want to watch a video, the player gives me either this:

or this still loading-image that does not move or change at all:

I'm also only getting this error on youtube. All other streaming sites (including org-preview) work fine.

Of course, I searched a bit on google for an answer, but nothing I found could fix the problem.

- Deleting cookies
- resetting my internet-connection
- disabled/unistalled plug-ins that have anything to do with youtube
- Re-installing firefox
- Re-installing the adobe flash player
- tried in private mode
- tried watching videos on the user's channel

Nothing changed at all.

When I try watching videos with internet explorer it tells me I need to update my flash player, but I do have the latest version (11.3.300.268) and even when following the installing-link nothing changes about it.

Has anyone ever run into this problem and knows a way how to solve it?

From what I know, everything that starts with "Mein Führer" is for no good :D

On the serious side of the problem now... I had 2 or 3 solutions about this but you've tried them all... Maybe there's a problem with your Youtube Profile - someone is trying to get you banned? I know that many Youtube videos are banned for German users, but that's just ridiculous.

Don't think so as its the same when I'm logged out.

(But you're right about one thing..the amount of videos getting blocked in Germany only surely is ridiculous)

IIRC, there were a number of privacy and data protection laws that have been brought to bare in court recently that pretty much guaranteed that would happen. From their perspective, It's far easier to pull out of a market altogether (or block a lot of stuff) than to make significant changes to your product - especially if they require you to hire an unfeasibly large number of people to look through things by hand as they're uploaded.

If you've only been having trouble for a few days then try a system restore to a point when you weren't having trouble assuming you haven't done anything else significant since then.

From what I can guess, it's an issue with flash itself, how youtube is using flash, or both. I've been running into this issue for a month or two when I start firefox with youtube tabs open (especially since I like to load loooooooooong playlists and watch them over a week or two.) The videos will often say "error loading your video", though refreshing works for me 99 times out of 100.

Usually, I find that stuff like this is thoroughly brought to google's/adobe's attention...and gets fixed in time.

Still gotta re-watch any pre-roll advertisements when you reload the page though (including when youtube decides the page has to be refreshed when you exit out of fullscreen) :|
You'd think setting a cookie to determine when an ad has been watched that gets unset/reset every time you load a new video wouldn't be that hard to do...

For the record: switching to Firefox 13 and Flash Player 10 didn't help either.

EDIT: Oh damn. I found out what was causing the error now. I was on proxy (and forgot about it). Turning it off did the job.
