Re: Worked great for 2 days, now youtube won't play
Huh, ok, this is interesting. So I played a movie via Chromecast w/ Netflix no problem. Then I went to youtube and was able to play a handful of videos w/ no problem at all. Then just out of curiosity, I went to the particular video I was trying to watch the other night and it started acting up again; played for a few minutes, went quiet, made a blip sound, then gave me that error in the photo from my original post and THEN every single video I tried to play after that messed up until I rebooted the chromecast.
How how weird is that? I repeated the whole process: rebooted the chromecast, watched random youtube videos w/ no problem, then went to that one particular video, and it behaved the same way as in the above paragraph, and then every youtube vid I tried to play after that gave me the same error.
It's almost as thought this one video (which plays fine on youtube on my laptop) acts up on the chromecast and screws up the chromecast until it is rebooted. I can't say why this is happening, just that it is what my experience has been so far. I was ready to take my chromecast to Best Buy yesterday for an exchange, but it seems that if I avoid this one video, I'm fine (although I'm sure there are other videos that cause the same problem). FYI the vid that messes up my chromecast is this one: How do I post a link to a vid without it being displayed/embedded in the post?
I can't explain it. It's just so odd!
