Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My YouTube videos don't load. I have Flash installed, and this is for the 64-bit version of my Ubuntu 12.10.

The video just doesn't load at all! It just says that an error has occurred. I have restricted extras installed and I update my system regularly.

Any opinions?

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Could you add a screen-shoot of the error that you get? You can upload it in Imgur and link it into your question. –  Lucio Mar 16 '13 at 2:47
Also mention the browser and its version (if it's not obvious from the image you'll upload). –  user25656 Mar 16 '13 at 3:54
I had the same problem and figured out that this problem was caused by my ISP. try refreshing the youtube page once or twice, or if you are using a dynamically allocated IP address, try disconnecting and then reconnect again. –  Anam Ahmed Mar 16 '13 at 5:18
