I have just installed Ubuntu 12.10. I'm not able to watch videos on youtube. After some time spent on loading I got the message:

an error occurred, please try again later.

This for any video I try to watch. Is there any plugin I'm missing? Thanks.

It might be a problem with flash plugin. Use Ubuntu software center to download the Adobe flash plugin. –  devav2 Nov 3 '12 at 19:19
It is installed, but it looks like it is for mozilla and I'm using chrome... –  Luigi Tiburzi Nov 4 '12 at 11:55
Check chrome://plugins/ for Adobe flash plugin –  devav2 Nov 4 '12 at 12:01
Ok, I reinstalled the plugin and now it is working, thanks! –  Luigi Tiburzi Nov 4 '12 at 12:04
Glad you fixed it :) –  devav2 Nov 4 '12 at 12:05
