Why won't youtube videos play whem I'm logged in?

This first occured about a week ago. Whenever I'm signed in to my account, the videos won't load, I can only see the comments. When I sign out, they play again, like they should. I tried clearing browser history, enabling Javascript, reinstalling chrome, switching off and on the router, nothing worked so far. Any advice, guys?

    I have that problem sometimes. I Pause the video and then click on Play again. Solves the problem.

    Try unblocking tracking for that site and see if that works. click on the shield icon next to the http address bar and select "disable tracking".

  4. The same thing is happening to me, Peter_131. Videos won't play on my IPhone, but when I'm signed in on my laptop it's fine. It's not the IPhone because when l sign out of my account, the videos stream fine on my phone.

    I'm hoping this is not an issue with YouTube. What else can it be? It's the only logical solution I see.
    Otherwise I'm as stumped as you.

  5. It went back to normal without me doing anything. Just give it some time it will be fine. I have no idea what caused it tho.
