Youtube's continuous error using Chromiun Browser


I do not know why, but the Chromium browser continuously gives me the error as seen in the screen shot I've attached. If I let the browser sit there for 5 to 15 seconds, it will play the youtube movie.

Other browsers do not do this. Anyone else experiencing this?

Have you cleared the cache, might have some corrupt data in there.

If you are using ublock this fix might help:

Does this happen with any YT video?
Does this happen on other browsers too?
Do you have extensions on Chromium? Have you tried disabling them just to see if they cause this?
Have you cleared the cache? I believe chromium uses both ~/.cache and ~/.config/chromium.

Please answer all these questions in full detail.

Open youtube in a private window. If it still does it it is NOT an extension. Go to the package manager and reinstall chromium. Try again.Make sure and refresh the repos first so you get the latest chromium.

did you go to:

https://www.youtube.com/html5

Most times that I get something like that, I have some flakey DNS servers. Or super high latency on the interwebs. Refresh/Reload will normally get things moving again without much issue.
