    Windows 8 shows black screen while playing YouTube videos

    Every time I try to play You Tube videos on my PC upgraded to Windows 8, I can view the black screen. I have already installed the latest flash player into my system. I am using Internet Explorer for browsing websites. Is there any way available to fix up this issue?

    At first, run the Internet Explorer performance troubleshooter and see whether it can resolve the issue. Open up the charms bar first by pressing the Windows key +C key and type Troubleshooting into available field. Click the ‘Troubleshooting’ option under ‘Settings’ and type ‘Troubleshooter’ into the ‘search’ option. After that, type ‘Performance’ into the search option inside new window and make a single click on ‘Internet Explorer Performance’. Follow the onscreen prompts afterwards and wait until the process gets finished. If this solution does not work, disable the proxy connection. Get into the top corner of Internet Explorer window and click the ‘Gear’ box. Click the ‘Tools’ button and then select ‘Internet Options’ option. Press the ‘Connection’ tab afterwards and click the ‘LAN settings’. Locate ‘Use a Proxy Server for your LAN’ label and clear off the checkbox next to it. Click the ‘Apply’ button and then ‘OK’ option for saving the changes made.

    Hi,

    Check your internet settings and bandwidth , check the upload download speed and consistency of the connection.

    Check for other sites surfing speed and continuity of signal.

    Most of the times low inconsistent speed creates trouble for uploading/downloading of the video files especially in you tube where there are many a files sre loaded simultaneously.

    Thanks.

    HELLO DEAR,

    Dear as the problem you are facing that when you play a video on your explorer your computer screen turned to black dear this problem may arise due to the reason that your flash player is not properly installed or may be the reason that your explorer is not with the settings to play the video from the YouTube so dear you must have to download the new explorer setup and install its default setting and then check again regarding the error occurred on the computer.

    >> Dear the reason may be possible that your internet connection must be slow so that the video can be properly loaded and video remains black.

    So dear according to my point of view you must have to check regarding the above specified problems and you find your problem solved.

    GOOD LUCK,
