Had an issue with YouTube for the past 3 days or so. Have attached a screenshot, rather than try and explain it!

It is the same either on Firefox or IE8.

Have ensured JavaScrpt is on, and reinstalled Flash.

All other websites are working perfectly.

As far as I know nothing has changed on my pc.
Any ideas?

Try clearing your temp files on your computer and browsers.

Thanks heavenly_wild , yes I have done that too. Seems bizarre that both FF and IE8 have the same issue, so not necessarily a browser issue. Indicating a system problem, yet localised to one website? I have also restarted my router. I just don't get it. Other sites are fine, and play flash files perfectly. I am on Xtra broadband.
If all else fails I will reinstall windows XP, yet drastic for one website, but one I enjoy!

It looks like a xtra broadband issue - we are having the same problem at work - my home internet is fine. Don't reinstall Windows!!!!!!!!

We logged a fault with xtra this morning - thr response was 'no one else seems has raised the issue so must be on your end' - I guess not.
