If that doesnt work....which it probably wont because these vids are flash objects and the error probably has to do with activex filtering

go to while viewing xf.com

Thanks EQnoble for those two solutions.
However I performed both solutions, but still see the YouTube videos as white with noise when clicked the "play" icon.
I am going to have to play with this some more and see if it's a Windows setting, IE setting, ActiveX setting, or an Adobe Flash setting.

Maxthon 4.0.3.6000, works fine.

32 bit version of IE and 64 bit of Win7.
I can see the YouTube play bars and thumbnail previews, but the video is pure white.

There we go!

Adobe implemented a new method in 11.6, it might be why I was recieving a pure white video box.

Bottom Line: Adobe Flash Player needed to be updated through Adobe's website. :rolleyes:
:ROFLMAO: go figure...hey at least you can watch videos now...:)

but yeah there is so may issues with flash player...which I can't complain about because for a while it was one of the two only ways to watch video in a web browser that I knew about...

Did that, and yes the menu pops-up. I got excited and I accidentally clicked on Maxthon. IE still has this problem. Not sure what it is at the moment. *doh*

Edit: Only has this whitebox in embed xenForo, not on Youtube.

right click the video and in the menu --> settings --> disable hardware acceleration and see if that helps...
Okay, tried shutting down and waiting for 2 mins, then cold start. [No change]
Tried Disabling Hardware Acceleration [Did not work].
Tried proxy IP [Did not work]
Tried going through another server [Did not work]

I can see the xenForo embeded YouTube controls and can see the video full-screen.
But for some strange reason, just normal video it displays as pure white with sound.

Update: Even tried IE's compatibility functionality.
