Re: YouTube won't play
If you have the html5 player already chosen (confirm by going to
and it should tell you or let you confirm said player. Once done I’d say check to make sure the mute button isn’t invoked. I’m curious if the video is actually not playing or just muted. That’s always what I check first along with the volume slider on the html5 player as well.

Subject: [TechTalk] YouTube won't play
I have no idea what I may have done, but recently, any time I go to YouTube to play something for which I have a link, nothing happens other than that I'm taken to the appropriate page. The video won't start playing automatically even though Autoplay is checked and clicking on Watch gets me nothing. I'm using IE 11 on a Windows 7 system and I know that You Tube used to work fine. Any suggestions for something I can check to get things back to normal? Thanks.
