Any idea why I can't post a YT video now? When I click 'Share' I just get the dreaded circle going round and round.

Same for the comments under the videos (I like reading them!).  Dreaded circle again.

Do I now have to sign in (create an account?).  I've never had to do that before.

Hi Lorraine,

 

I have just tried to do this, with the new laptop to see if it works and it does, silly question:lol: phone ot laptop? have you switch everything off, told you it was a silly question, it only takes seconds to stop the dreaded circle, you don't have to have an account.

Laptop. I don't even know where to start with posting YT vids from my phone :lol:. It just stopped working for me last week. Weird.

As you say weird, maybe delete cookies? I have no idea what I am talking about but when Keith had trouble getting into estreest radio he did this and it worked. Where are the computer boffins.:D

Try using a different browser and see if that works.

:lol: And pray, tell me, dear CosmicKid, what different browser should I use and where should I find it? And would it be free? :D I use Google Chrome which you recommended to me quite a while ago, and have had no problems with it.

If you use chrome see this post.

You could try firefox as an alternative to chrome.

When posting youtube vids you can click on share or alternatively click on the address at the top of your screen (next to the padlock sign) it will highlight, then right click choose copy and then right click in your GL post and choose paste.

Ah, OK.  So I've managed to post a video on the Aww thread by clicking on the address next to the padlock sign. I didn't know you could do that.  Thanks.

Next question! (You KNOW there's going to be a next question, don't you?).  If I download Firefox as a browser (only for YouTube I guess), will I lose Google Chrome or can I still use it for everything else apart from YT?

I still don't understand why I can't see the comments section under the videos.  Can you, @jmw?

Yes I can see the comments under the videos I post.

 

I don't know, my brother in law set mine up and he uses Firefox.

No just use either browser as and when you want. You can import all your bookmarks into firefox if you want when installing. You will be asked whether you want to make it the default but that's your choice. Either way you can use either chrome or firefox as you wish. On win 10 you should also have microsoft edge as a browser too though few people use it.

You must not ignore the malware. If you read the articles above, you will see why. It can be removed fairly easily and I'd recommend you use malwarebytes to scan your devices on a regular basis.

No problem. We can return to your youtube posting problem later although removing any malware may fix it anyway.

I installed a melwear app thingy and it didn't find any

I guess i need to follow the instructions to the letter so i need the lap top on greasylake and follow your link to know what to do with the phone  but Gary has the lights off because his eyes hurt and he yells why can't i find the key board light on my laptop keyboard but i don't think its flash enough to have that. Can't find a torch - cannot see to type 

I don't know why everything has to be do hard 

Will have to do it tomorrow in daylight
