    Re: Unable to play any Youtube Videos in Windows 8

    YouTube videos runs online which means working Internet connection with latest version of Adobe Flash Player is necessary. Make sure that your computer fulfill these two requirements first. If you have installed the older versions of Adobe Flash Player then update it to the latest version. Now disable "Pop-up blocker software (if any..)" temperarily and make youtube.com, a trusted site in your Firewall's settings. The last thing which you should check is the default streaming Application. It should not be other than Adobe Flash Player. Many times, user sets Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player as their default streaming application which fails in many cases.

    Hi,
    This might be due to you might not have ADOBE FLASH PLAYER installed on your system.
    So just go to ADOBE.com
    Now click on DOWNLOADS SECTION.
    There click on ADOBE FLASH PLAYER.
    Then download and install it.....
    Now try running the video again..
    I`m sure it will now run without any error....
