    YouTube Not Work Properly
    Hey guys,

    Whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube, I'd have to refresh a couple of times before I can watch a video. Before that, the error message would pop up.

    This problem only happens in Safari and not on Chrome. What should I do?

    By the way I use iMac 21.5", running 10.6.3.

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    If you haven't done so already, I would upgrade Flash:

    Adobe - Adobe Flash Player
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Specs:
    Mid 2015 15" rMBP, 2.8GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB Storage, AMD Radeon R9 M370X, 10.11.1
    I'd also recommend switching into YouTube's HTML5 mode: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    What error message would that be? Is this with all YT videos?

    It's the error message that says "An error has occurred, please try again later". It doesn't happen to all videos, but it happens sporadically.

    I tried that, but for some reason I can never make it stay that way. It switches back to flash.

    Yes, and I thought that was causing the problem. However, after uninstalling, the problem is still there.

    I already have the latest version. Uninstalled and installed a few times too.
