Windows 10: No Video in YouTube Music Videos. Solved

    No Video in YouTube Music Videos.

    Hi folks,

    Just like the title said, my problem is that I'm not getting any video when I try to watch a music video on YouTube. In the past all I've had to do was reload the page and then it would work, but after smashing F5 hundreds of times I've come to the conclusion that that method no longer works.

    Any other video works just fine. If the video doesn't show up, then I reload the page and there it is.

    For example.

    This video loads just fine after reloading the page: Regular Car Reviews: 1995 Mazda Miata MX-5 - YouTube

    This video won't load. Only audio: Brad Paisley - Southern Comfort Zone - YouTube

    I'm using Firefox version 51.0.1 (32-bit) I have Adblock Plus installed and here's all the Add-ons I have installed.

    No problem with other browsers ?

    Disable the first 3 add-ons to see if any effect.

    Works just fine in Chrome, Edge, and IE. So far it's only Firefox.

    I tried disabling the first three add-ons, but I'm still not getting any video.

    So I disabled everything (all add-ons and extensions) and it started working again.

    I started re enabling them one at a time to figure out which one was the culprit, but so far I haven't had any issues. I'm getting the video, even with everything enabled again.

    I think it must have been Ad-Block Plus because after disabling that, the video began to show again. However after turning it back on, the video is still there so maybe it just needed to be restarted? Not sure, but it's working. :)

    Strange thing happened to me the other day in FF. It wouldn't play anything on Youtube until I turned off "Play DRM content".
