    Default Problem watching You Tube videos

    A few weeks ago I tried to watch a youtube video, but there were 2 problems:
    1) there was no sound (windows media player works so my sounds it on), and
    2) the bar showing the progress of where I'm at in my viewing progress stops after about 3 seconds and the video freezed there. The red bar showing the amount of the video loading keeps on moving.

    So, I though my temporary internet files folder was full or something, so I deleted all my internet history, cookies, restarted my pc, but the videos still won't play after a few seconds.

    This is using Firefox V2.0.0.17. When I use IE, there is no problem.

    Ideas to be able to play youtube vids in FF again?

    I'm having problems watching videos as well. When I first start watching videos it will be fine. It happens after watching about 7 or 8 videos it will start saying "This video no longer exists" or some crap like that and I won't be able to watch any videos for a while and then the problem will just keep repeating itself.

    Anybody know what the problem could be?

    Edit - Oh yeah and I'm using Internet Explorer if that helps.

    I get that message most of the time in IE. (The one that says it is no longer available). FF fixed it 100% for me.

    IE - Get "This video no longer exists"

    FF- Get no sound and freezes play after 2-3 seconds. Restarting FF fixes the issue but usually happens again.

    Have done searches but nothing has ever completely solved the problem for me. I get this on my home computers but at work its fine.
