So, I go to youtube about once every 2 weeks to listen to my favorite toons or to listen to music I'm curious about and something original happened.

I clicked on the video, it acted like it was loading. Then, when it should have played, I get a white screen. Why is this? This occured in my home.

I recently took this laptop to my employment where they block youtube viewing. Is there a setting that needs to be changed?

Is it your entire screen that goes white or just the youtube screen?

If you have an addon like ad block plus you could try disabling that and see if it fixes the problem.

I don't know that it would help but since you mentioned it happened after using your laptop at work you could also try clearing your cookies/temporary internet files.

Also another helpful bit of information. What browser are you using and what OS?

Interesting new development. I heard the sound of the video, but all I got was a black screen this time. No picture.

You could try reinstalling Adobe Flash to see if that fixes it.

Outside of that you might also try another web browser to see if it's working with it.

Try the HTML5 trial at Youtube. You won't have to worry about Flash then.

You'll just have to use an HTML5 capable browser or Google frame.

P.S. Friends don't let friends use MSIE.
