I have not been able to view Youtube videos for a while, now. I get a message that I have to link YT and Google accounts so I can see the videos. If that is true, how do I do that ?? What is going on here ?? I have accounts with both.

Sounds suspicious to me. Like someone gained access to Ytube and is looking to invade goog. Several friends, including a computer literate newspaper columnist have had goog stolen in last few weeks. PW is changed to lock owner out, all friends spammed under owner's name.
I am NOT an internet expert - I make my way.
What os you running?

Go to your youtube account and scour the settings to be SURE there isn't something in there that is linking your videos to google.

OK. UPDATE !!!

Out of curiosity, I clicked on Internet Explorer and then clicked on Don's You tube link. Great video. Then using the same browser, I clicked on Craig's videos. Both played GREAT using IE.

SO, is this a Fire Fox problem ???????????

IE will play the vids but Fire fox will not.

I tried a few other sites using IE and they played very well.

NOW WHAT ???????????

Thanks for the help so far,

Jim
