youtube and apps related to youtube


I have some issues with YouTube. Often the page does not open. "The page cannot be displayed" is the standard message

Other website open smoothly. I don't say it never opens. It does open. I do watch movies but stops abruptly.

The message shown within the video window goes like this "error occurred Try later". Then even after several

attempts this movie or any other movie will not start. I close to restart IE just to find "page cannot be displayed"

But sometimes a full 2 hrs. movie plays smoothly without any shuttering. I am unable to figure out what could be

the problem. The above is on desktop version of IE.


YouTube related metro apps also have same problem.


     Mega tube has never opened properly.


     YouTube downloader plus RT initially worked well, then after a few  days it stopped displaying even

     video screen shots. It shows grey screen now with movie name and time below.


     Down Tube also plays movies if it wishes.


Where am I going wrong ? Kindly help












If you're receiving an error “The page cannot be displayed” when attempting to load a web page, the problem may indicate an issue with that website's host, with Internet Service Provider, with network. Before performing any of these troubleshooting methods, determine if the problem is local or global. Visit a popular website to see if it loads. If it does, the problem is with the first website. Try to load it again later. If you cannot reach any websites, continue with troubleshooting methods.

Refer to the help article and perform the steps which are listed under Windows 8 operating system.
