I am using Windows 10 on my Toshiba Satellite with Google Chrome as my browser.

Whenever I click on Youtube to watch a video, attached is what appears in my browser instead of the video.: "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video." When I click the link, what I see there does not help me in any way.

Can anyone help me out with this. Thanks.


The thing is, there are many priors to this problem. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/browser-does-not-currently-recognize-any-of-video-formats/

The real problem is "What is this time?"

What I'm running into are folk upset that no one knows what it is on your PC this time. Even so, you may know what changed on your PC or not. The only good news is that there are priors to read and decide which to try.

Just for grins, are you using anti-malware, private viewing, or security extensions in Chrome?

I had one machine with this problem ( out of several). Though I didn't see any apparent differences, I "reset" Chrome to default and YouTube began working again. I am guessing the difference was related to some setting that remained after an uninstalled extension.
