    Hi, I just installed AdBlockPlus a while ago. This is the first time I have used this program so I am not very familiar with it. I just noticed that when I run ABP, I cannot play videos on Youtube. It just displays black window with the control like play and pause, but no video.

    The workaround is to Disable on When I do that, I can watch videos on the web site without any problem, although ads were there.

    I can live with it for the meantime while waiting for the actual solution. I have done everything from reinstalling Adblockplus to disabling anything related to firewall but didn’t solve the problem.

    Have you checked your filter lists, what is your current settings on this? Also please provide your current browser whether you are experiencing it with Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc…

    For me, your Firewall settings has nothing to do why you cannot play video on Youtube. Better retain the previous settings. That’s for your own safety.

    I have found a YT filter on the list. I thought it was the only one causing this problem. I have removed this YT filter but still didn’t solve the problem. Youtube videos still not playing unless Adblockplus is disabled.

    Here is my take on that. Go to settings of each Internet browser programs. Clear all cookies and cache. If that will not solve your problem and still cannot play youtube videos, might as well you need to reset each settings and reinstall adblockplus.
