Why am I unable to watch YouTube videos on Google Chrome?

Asked by xTheDreamer (890points) March 12th, 2010

Hi, I’ve been trying to watch some YouTube videos on Google Chrome but lately I can’t watch any videos. It keeps saying “An error has occurred” but when I watch YouTube videos on Mozilla Firefox it would go but not on Google Chrome, so what’s up? What is going on with YouTube on Google Chrome?

try closing chrome, installing flash player again, open chrome, and then try watching youtube again.

@tomokawaii I did that and it didn’t go. It’s so strange.

what’s the problem? it always says sorry an error has occurred if so, its not it the browser… maybe its youtube, or the internet connection isn’t strong enough.

@tomokawaii Yes, it always says An error occurred, please try again. But how come I could play the YouTube on Firefox and not on Google Chrome?
