    Default Firefox ? or YouTube?

    I am not too sure whether it's Firefox or YouTube is behaving erratically since the last couple of days. I have the latest FF updates and have reinstalled FF.

    OS: Windows 11 Pro.

    YouTube fails to load for some sites, but it loads OK after a while when I come back to load it.

    I have cleared FF's Cache, doesn't help.

    Quite annoying, ...

    I'm having similar anything posted today on Youtube won't play. This on Firefox and Edge so more likely a Youtube issue

    Same here with Firefox, and Chrome. Must be YouTube. Gmail is also doing the same thing, must be a Google glitch.

    I'm Win 10 P{ro 64 bit -fully updated. I have no problems accessing YouTube Music Videos - using FF , Opera , Chrome or MS Edge.
    Another instance of how variable individual computers can act

    For me its only videos uploaded that day that don't seem to want to play. But then we are at the end of a dead end pipe on a road to nowhere so maybe some of those videos bypass us instead of turning up our street.

    Just notice that there's new(?) feature, "pop out this video" causing the problem?
    Not aware of this feature until lately.

    No problems on Firefox 104beta5, I use uTube a lot, haven't noticed any problems but that may be because I am using this extension called Windowed:

    I found one uTube video yesterday evening that wouldn't play but after a few tries it did work .

    It did seem like the faulty behaviour you were describing though.

    It seems as if there may be problems with uTube.

    Turns out you need to turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox settings.

    Settings - Performance - untick use recommended performance settings - untick use hardware acceleration when available
