Some technical disfunction on the browser or dirty trick by Google?
YouTube has recently changed to a new video-player HTML5 as a default option. The new player will give you some headache every time you try for video with some laptop browsers other than Google Chrome.
Thankfully, the Adobe Flash Player still remaining for Youtube viewers as an alternate option. It is an unspoken option, not easy to get to.
Not satisfied with HTML5? Then go and reform the standard YouTube Url by adding some more codes < &nohtml5=1 > to the end of adress string.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLuZteet9mY&nohtml5=1
Again, you can watch video with Adobe Flash Player in a separate window, without having to visit YouTube front page. Insert /v/ code in the mid of the adress string. http://www.youtube.com/v/dLuZteet9mY
As for me, I sweared off watching Youtube video in HTML5 mode.. It has now refused to work with my current IE11, while Adobe Flash plugin keeps working without fail.
This is the HTML5 "dead black" window I got now to see so oftentimes when using IE browser. This all looks like a dirty trickery by Google to better promote Chrome browser on market. Is it not?
