YouTube not working?

Post by papa chango on Tue May 20, 2014 9:38 pm

In the last week or so YouTube on this board has not been visible for me. In a post containing a YouTube video I just see a blank white spot like nothing is there. Here is an attempt to post a sample youtube video:




Does anyone else have a problem in seeing this video?

I think I figured out what the problem is. This board uses the Adobe Flash Player to display videos. The Flash Player is no longer supported by Adobe or any of the software companies.  

The following is from Samsung Support (07/31/2013):
"Beginning August 15, 2012 we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th, 2012."

Here is a link to a discussion about this problem:

Papa Chango:

Something strange here? I just went to this website on my Samsung Galaxy SIII and not only could I see the videos but they also played for me. What happens when you go directly to YouTube?

Using the Android application for YouTube, I have no problems playing YouTube videos.  The browser I am using, I selected partially because it did have support for Adobe Flash Player. However, in the last few weeks I've had this problem using it. It seems to work on other sites but it no longer works on this board.

If it helps at all, I used Chrome when checking my smartphone this morning? Since I am an admitted dummy and quite lazy when it comes to figuring out all the features of my smartphone - maybe it is ignorance is bliss?

I am surprised that the Google Chrome browser worked because it's made by Google.  I still have it on my smartphone but its frozen. I'll defrost it and try it and see what happens.
