Re: Dell with Windows 10-YouTube Videos Problem?

TAKE YOUR PHONE VIDEOS WITH THE CAMERA POSITIONED HORIZONTALLY!

There may be apps or software that will flip them later, but lots of resolution will be lost.

This is a world wide problem and rather than pointing out the issue the media adds on blurred copies to each side.

The New Holland looks great on my desktop Dell and my iPhone 10.

The photo below is a YouTube screenshot uploaded from my iPhone 10. Obviously YouTube screenshots leave a lot to be desired in the resolution department. I suspected it was lost in capturing motion to still, however, the second photo is with the YouTube pause button activated.

The third photo is a screenshot of the embedded view within the post. Apparently the cropped embedded frame is better than the YouTube app screen. You are comparing 50kb and 56kb reductions in the first two with 74kb in the third. I'll have to try it with a hi-res video.

Paul, I also get the "black screen". It just started a few weeks ago. I usually use internet explorer. When I use Google search engine, the videos work just fine. I haven't figured out what happened yet. I'll let you know if I do. Nice collection by the way.

Got it!

It's a problem with the current version of Internet Explorer.

I'll be working on it, but Javascript must be disabled in IE unless properly set up in the settings.

Firefox works great, but I may have added a JavaScript plug-in.

Chrome works great!

Safari works great.

Opera actually warns me that JavaScript is turned off, but I want it that way.

Googled: youtube black screen in internet explorer embedded videos

Result: A lot of BS. I downloaded Adobe Flash, but still have the black screen on IE.
The only thing I can come up with is browser settings looking to prevent incoming hacks.

Paul what I should of said was Google Chrome search engine. Sometimes the downsloads are faster too.

It's been a problem for a couple months or so now.

My Newer Dell All-in-one has Windows 10 and everything worked great up till just a couples months or so ago, and as Harry noted, it seems to be an Internet Explorer problem.

I had been using Firefox for a couple years on my old computer and to begin with on the new one, but then started having problems with Firefox and Avast fighting each other so I reverted back to Explorer last year. It worked Fine up until just recently.

Hopefully it can be fixed, but if not then as long as the links are included I can always click on them and watch the videos On YouTube.

:salute:

No resolution :( Works on edge :) , but not IE :mad: . Both are MS products? I liked IE, getting used to edge and Windows 10 as its what I now have :shrug: . Doing some "settings" changes to my liking :rolleyes: . Just takes a lot of time away from wrenching :eek: . I feel Harry's pain.....

Happy To Report everything is Working Normal Again even with Internet Explorer on Windows 10. . . At least on My Computer Anyway.

Videos Started Working again a week or two ago.

Don't know if Harry found a Fix for it somewhere or if it was an automatic update somewhere along the line but it's working again anyway.

I had checked the JavaScript settings as-per Harry's post back in July but everything seemed to be where it was supposed to be.

How About the Rest Of You out there in Engine Land ? Working Now (?) or Still a Black Screen where the Video Should Be ???

:salute:
