    No surprise that both vids, and any other, play fine in both my usual browsers.


    The vids in question use the AVC1 codec so I doubt the issue is the browser considering that other web sources are fine. Possible that you do not have the codec installed so here is the downloaded first vid. Can you play that ?

    G/Day Thanks thats fixed the Issue or told us how too. I did think Codec's but I have been playing these Clips forever on Y T and its never missed a beat, so I coluld nothave thought of that being the Issue and only cropping up a week ago?

    So what has caused this has that Codec been changed how do replace it or fix it I have the KCodecs Pack somewhere on this PC but they are old or should I just Google -it and find one and try and Install that into >progams >YouTube Folder?

    Cheers dashas

    ^^ The OP stated he/she is using Firefox (could not mind up if using Edge)


    YT changed their base codecs many months ago so if they played fine a week or so the issues will not be codec related.


    A quick Google led me to this


    https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/how-to-fix-youtube-videos-black-screen-easily/


    Check option 4 or the 'sign out' option


    There are many posts with these issues and a Google of 'no video on Youtube' will call up a pile.


    Adblockers and general internet issues (failure to load the video) may also be the culprit (from these results). So here is another result from the search
