I clicked on the first video, it took me to YT, but then nothing but a circling symbol. So I copied and pasted the title into YT and the video played.

The second video went right into play mode.

However, I do not have the latest flash player on my Mac, so that may have something to do with why some play and others do not.

Both played just fine for for me, same as they have in the past, within the message on the forum. It may have been a YouTube issue.

FWIW, YouTube no longer uses Flash, instead using HTML5 video.

I tried it on my Surface GO and on my Laptop. No Go

Both are running the Edge Browser.

Do you have Edge Dave ? Perhaps you can check.

Sorry, no Edge!

I'm not sure Edge will run on Win7. Let me do some checking.

Later.

Edge won't run on any of my older machines, I'm not going to be much help today.

Run the following url: https://www.w3counter.com/globalstats.php?

I personally don't like the look and feel of Chrome, and have been comfortable with FireFox for a number of years.

@RedOne07

A little bit of Googling and there is a known issue with Edge and YouTube. (Google "Microsoft Edge YouTube").

How to fix it: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-t...w-edge-youtube

Hope this helps.
