Default How to fix YouTube that stops playing after 2 seconds

Do you have problems with YouTube or any type of Flash stopping after 2 seconds on your computer? Well, I found a fix after experiencing it on my own computer. The problem seems to be an incompatibility issue with the most current issue of Flash player 9.0.115.0 and with something in your computer.

The solution I found was to downgrade your current version of Flash player and reinstall an older Flash player version 9.0.47.0. Here are a few steps to fix this problem from your Windows PC:

1. First you will need to uninstall the current version of Flash player on your computer.

2. Click this link to Download the Official Adobe Flash player uninstaller from their website.

3. Put the downloaded file "uninstall_flash_player.exe" in the C:/ drive

4. Run the uninstall file: uninstall_flash_player.exe

5. Now go here to download an older version of Adobe Flash player:
Flash Player 9.0.47.0 (1 MB)

6. Install Flash Player 9.0.47.0 on to your computer.

7. And you are done! The problem should be resolved and you should be able to watch Youtube or Flash videos again.

UPDATE:
After restarting my computer, automatic updates asks me to update to the latest Flash player (9.0.124.0). I updated and now my Flash player is up to date and my YouTube and Flash videos are playing fine.
