Hi all Not sure who this problem should be directed to so I will start here . I know there were / still are issues with VM and Youtube streaming but I found a while back that videos would stop playing back but did not seem to be buffering and the audio would carry on , this could be solved by nudging the progress slider . More recently another problem has surfaced , when I play a video after a short while I get a second recording of the sound ontop of the first , if I stop the playback the video and one sound stop but the other sound carries on . There was one occation where it was an advert that played over the top of the wanted sound . Also I have found that some sound plays without clicking the play button , like the "tips" video above . All this makes YT unuseable so anyone have an idea what is wrong ? I use Win XP sp3 , Firefox , and I think the playbacks are normaly HTML5
I've had the second sound track problem but in chrome on a Win 7 pro PC. With me it was something to do with flash and HTML5 both trying to play the video at the same time. I disabled auto play for flash and it fixed it.
To do this in Firefox:
Type about:addons in the address bar, hit enter and click on plugins on the left. If Always Activate is selected for Shockwave Flash change it to Ask to Activate.
The double sound problem is gone but there is still a buffering problem , the video stops with the buffering whirly thing but the sound carries on for a while then it to stops , I decided to leave it and see what happens , the video will start after some time and the sound jumps back to match the video , very odd .
As before I can nudge the progress slider to make the video and sound carry on , so if it has the data there why does it buffer ?, aint technology wonderful ! .
