    I searched this on the internet and only got stuff from 2014 when it happened last time.

    Right now I'm using Firefox for YouTube cause Chrome only displays raw text. Obviously this isn't the first time this has happened, but it's the first time I've experienced it. Since I'm too lazy to properly research the problem and fix it...any suggestions?

    Is this in the forums or on profiles? I can see your profile embeds in both browsers, but my forum views are a bit messed up at the moment so I'd be more inclined to blame one of the servers/databases.

    If you haven't already, try updating Chrome, restart it and/or Windows, and try holding while reloading the page. Those might give Chrome the needed kick in the posterior.

    If you have an adblocker extension turned on, it is blocking scripts and stylesheets after a recent update to YouTube, which is why you are seeing an unformatted page. Try to manually update your adblocker filter lists if you have one installed.

    ^This, I would try to update Chrome. I just did a few months back when Chrome was doing update prompts.
    The latest version I have is:

    Version 47.0.2526.111 m (Win 7 64-bit)

    Yes I have; actually Its likely because you are using the default PepperFlashPlayer on chrome. This is included with Google Chrome, but not with the open source Chromium; as well as some of the other Chromium based browsers (Superbird - Iron - Citrio and others). If you find you are having trouble with youtube, you could try disabling this player, and installing the current flash player from the adobe website. This is of course if the video you are trying to play in fact requires flash. Most videos now will play with the HTML player.

    The PepperFlash is great 99% of the time, but occasionally I have noticed it sometimes won't play. If you decide to stay with the default player, just update Google Chrome and you should be good to go!

    Hope that helped a bit icon_smile.gif
