When I click play in a YouTube attachment, it doesn’t work. All the other functions seem to work, but I can’t get the video to play.

    Hello, it could also be because you are using an extension like noscript.  What browser are you using?

    it usually happens when ur internet connection expires. it happened to me once.

    First, clear out your browse cache. Then, re-install Adobe Flash. This sometimes happens to me, clearing my cache and restarting my browser usually fixes it.

    do you mean embedded video by video attachment or something else ?
    cilck the youtube icon in the embedded video window when seekbar is located.
    to watch on youtube.

    if you can watch video on youtube on the youtube site, restart the browser and try again.

    if you can't watchit on youtube also, update your flash player.
