My laptop has stopped playing videos on YouTube out of nowhere. I've restarted the device several times as well as turned it on and off, but the result is still the same.
When I select a video on YouTube it loads the video and continues to do so with no signs of ever finishing. When I reload the page the result is the same only this time a box of text appears after a while that reads "Playback failed. Restart device if problem persists." Or something to that ilk anyways.
And it's not just YouTube. Any site that has streaming capabilities or videos refuse to play.
I have yet to find a solution and it's starting to get quite irritating.
If anyone knows of a solution I'd be grateful for the help.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, have a great day and stay safe out there.
