grief videos

Question: Youtube continues to say this on all videos that I open,on all browsers.I can play videos on newly installed browsers,but after few hours they fail too.I don’t have Google accelerator.

Answer: The famous message “WE’RE SORRY THIS VIDEO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE”
is typically the result of stupid software claiming that it can
“accelerate” buffering. This includes crap like GWA, Speed
Bit, Trident, Jaton, ATI Fire, Diamond Fire, and Easy Video
Accelerator. They all make YouTube behave very erratically.

Of course nothing “accelerates” streaming video files. Even
the people at YouTube, Google and Macromedia know this,
and write that in their own FAQs. Thus if you have any kind
of “accelerator”…then dump it, burn it, kick it, rip it, trash it,
uninstall it; do everything you can to get as far away from it
as possible.

If you do not have one of those moronic utilities, something
on your computer is interfering with YouTube. Thus, please
consider any of these:

Not much has changed in the last couple years in terms of
playing YouTube. If anything, the newest Flash players are
causing lots of YouTubers some kind of grief, especially all
8 variations of version 10. It’s crazy that there is a 10.0.525,
10.1.218, 10.2.26, 10.2.54, 10.12.10, 10.12.36, 10.15.3, as
well as 10.22.87. Most updates are good for only one thing:
software conflicts. I have never strayed away from 9.47 and
many “flashers” still swear that 9.45 is best. Think of those
2 as you would Windows XP compared to Vista. Check out

You may also wish to consider these alternate possibilities:

→ Tools → Internet Options → Connections (tab)
→ LAN Settings (which is the very last button)
→ uncheck “Automatically detect settings”

→ Tools → Internet Options → Advanced (tab)
→ scroll down until you reach “Multimedia”
→ check-mark all but “Show image download placeholders”

Two people have written to me saying after they got rid of a
certain software, things seemed to work all right afterwards:
One person got rid of his “nVidia” drivers; the other trashed
his “ad blocking” utility. Do you perhaps have either or both
of these on your computer?

I’ve saved my favorite other solution for the end. YouTube is
at its best when you clear all your “Cookies”, “History” and
“Temporary Internet Files”. My cool “CHTIF” triple-cure has
resolved hundreds of people’s problems, so why not yours?
Close out YouTube, do the following, then shutdown/reboot:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

Internet Explorer 7:
→ Tools → Internet Options → Delete…
→ Delete files → Yes
→ Delete cookies → OK
→ Delete history → OK
→ Close (browsing history window)
→ OK

Mozilla Firefox:
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now

IMPORTANT: ANOTHER POSSIBLE CAUSE IS FIREFOX 3 AND ITS
INTERACTION WITH YOUTUBE’S (GOOGLE’S) “CACHE” SERVERS
THAT REFUSE THE PLUG-IN’S REQUEST FOR VIDEO FILES. THIS
RETURNS A FALSE ERROR CODE TO YOUTUBE SAYING THAT IT
CAN’T FIND THE VIDEO, OR THAT THE REQUEST DOESN’T MAKE
SENSE.

OF COURSE, THE VIDEOS ARE REALLY THERE, BUT FOR SOME
STRANGE REASON, YOUTUBE RETRANSMITS THE ERRONEOUS
CODE TO WE’RE SORRY THIS VIDEO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
WHAT’S THE SOLUTION? NOBODY KNOWS, BUT IT IS A FIREFOX
AND YOUTUBE ISSUE. IF YOU’RE USING FIREFOX 3, YOU MIGHT
WANT TO TRY A DIFFERENT BROWSER.

I hope my multiple answer is helpful for you. If you are able
to determine the “cause” and its “cure”, I would appreciate
it if you could please let me know, either by clicking on my
avatar or emailing me at “inukjuak90@yahoo.com”.

IT ALSO WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME A BIT IF YOU HAD A RUNNING
“MESSENGER” PROGRAM THAT’S CONFLICTING WITH YOUTUBE.

One person recently emailed me that he downloaded/installed a more
recent version of DirectX and that it apparently solved all his problems:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sometimes, clicking “Refresh”, pressing “F5”
or clicking “Back” and then “Forward” seems
to temporarily solve the problem.

Another solution that you might want to try is
to attach “&fmt=18” to the end of a video URL:
If you get: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v =KQ4v9ZSIL3U
change it: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v =KQ4v9ZSIL3U&fmt=18

Is there a difference for you in these 2 below?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ4v9ZSIL3U
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ4v9ZSIL3U&fmt=18
or
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKnZiPVRr_0
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKnZiPVRr_0&fmt=18

If this work-around seems to fix your problem,
the easiest way for you to do this any time is:
→ type &fmt=18 somewhere
→ highlight it
→ hit ‘CTRL’ and ‘C’ together
then whenever you’d like to use the “&fmt=18”
→ hit ‘CTRL’ and ‘V’ together.
