as soon as the message appears, hit your backspace key, then go back to the video. It will play. I tried a fix but it doesn't stick. This is a pain but try my suggestion.

on the "errored video", pause it and choose one of the several resolutions proposed by the youtube player (720p, 480p, 360p, 240p etc..).

verify that the resolution has been changed on the button

and voila
it is sure that one of the different resolutions will work!!

When I get that error I can still watch the video by hitting the pop-out button below the viewing screen. A new window pops up and I can watch it.
I can't stop that error occurring but I am still able to watch the video.

Nice! Out of all the things I've tried this is the first thing that worked! Good enough for me. Thanks!

Thanks Ian! That worked for me too. I am using Puppy Linux, MSI Wind 120, Firefox with latest flash. This is not an issue with my Windows computers which I refuse to browse the internet with unless I really need to. Thanks Again!

This is the reality, 3 choices/reasons

Update flash player
Update browser

If this happens to you in IE or Chrome it's probably the flash

Firefox would not load Youtube videos on other sites, only on Youtube (weird). So I: Click on Tools>Options>Clear history when Firefox closes-Settings, and check everything, every single box (clear everything). Then, exit Firefox, re-open Firefox, go to a website that offers Youtube videos and click on one (Firefox may take a bit longer to load if you had a lot of information to delete). My problem was solved after I did all that, but now I have to check if the problem doesn't repeat after I change my History Setting back to the way they were before.

Looks clear that youtube only lets in connections it can easily track.. Guess the purpose.. $$$$$ !
Doesn't have to do with Firefox, Chrome, Adobe or your cookies...
It's a question of tracking you down to see exactly what you look at.. how many times, from where, at what times, forcing re-connections... Knowing and comparing your OS, your Browser, your cookies from previous sites, ranges of time... GATHERING INFORMATION.
Using a "secure or hard to track" connection, youtube doesn't work. You'll be able to see only 1\2 a video, and no more. F*** youtube and their lack of security. BTW, this site does almost same thing. They force a Script... or sign in to let you post something... Not cool... No. Over 9000!

I have the same problem ever since I install a wireless network card and go wireless,
all websites and video clips work fine and only youtube videos gives me problem,
I switch back to the wired network adaptor and youtube video is ok again.
I switch between wireless and wire network adaptor several times and my conclusion is this:
with wired adaptor=youtube videos ok
with wireless adaptor=youtube videos not ok
