pc issue Youtube Video's not playing

10 posts in this topic

I have been using Maxthon since it was MyIE, but i am very frustrated lately. I have been using Firefox as an alternative as  i cannot play videos on YouTube on my laptop, or my PC.  The error is 

"your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available."

Is there a fix for this??

go to https://www.youtube.com/html5

In the "What does this browser support?" section, do all the options have ticks? if not, which ones?

ensure you're using the default user agent. "Customise user agent string" should be unchecked in settings > advanced > other.

I have similar problem with YouTube.com:

1) I can not see youtube searchbar

2) when I click on video, I see empty page (only little icon in left corner)

disable Youtube Centre extension.

For the OP, also disable any extensions to check they aren't causing the issue.

HI 7twenty, thank you for the reply.   H.264  has a red exclamation as does  WebM VP8 , everything else is checked. I do have the customise your user agent string unchecked.  Do I need to do anything with those red exclamations?

No, it just shows what the browser supports. All options should be ticked. So there is something wrong, but it's odd that YT isn't using one of the other options instead.

Can you try downloading and testing with the latest portable version: http://dl.maxthon.com/mx5/maxthon_portable_5.1.5.2000.7z

Make sure your installed version is closed. DO NOT login to your Maxthon passport account if you use one. Extract and run the downloaded version and see if the same happens.

so, I signed out of my maxthon account, opened up the portable version and Youtube worked right away.  I guess I have an extension or something somewhere that's causing the issue.  I'll try and reset my maxthon to default settings to see if that does the trick.  thank you very much for your replies and help :)
