ALL I can see is big gaps where the pics and links should be....
Very few pictures and no links to videos.

I am logged in so I don't know....

Two possibilities. One is you're running an ad-blocker or maybe script-blocker browser extension (AdBlock, Adblock Plus, ScriptSafe, Noscript, etc.) which is blocking objects from the server but still showing the text of the page. I don't know how this would impact being able to log in because I've always whitelisted AAPK. The ad-blockers should be the easiest to configure, just click on the program icon in the browser's toolbar (usually red, think stop signs) and uncheck the option that says "enable on this site" or "block this site", something similar to that. Script blockers might be a little more difficult but you'll need to allow or "trust" allaboutpocketknives.com at the minimum.

The other is that your browser itself is having trouble. Try another one if you have one. if you use Chrome, try Firefox. If you use Firefox, try Chrome. Opera is a decent alternate option. If it fails in all those browsers, I don't know what to tell you - possible corruption in your operating system. Too much for a forum like AAPK to fix, really. If it DOES work, and you want to fix your main browser, try going into the browser settings and clearing all the temporary files (cache, cookies, etc.), then review or reset your browsing settings to default. Try logging in again and see if it displays.

For my part I paged through the thread and everything looks good. Good luck in getting to the bottom of it. ::tu::

Thanks Tony....
I am at work so I might be getting this problem from our server.
I might just have to live with it.....
Funny thing is, everything else works. I see everyone's pics just fine.
AND, I listen to Pandora all day and the ads abound there so.... I am about sure the issue is with our server here.

Oh well.

Mike

Same set-up I have except my regular browser is I.E.. When you say you can't watch videos, I assume there is just some kind of blank spot where the video is posted??? Are you able to play videos on the YouTube web site? You may not care for it but have you tried browsing with Internet Explorer?

Plus everything Tony (Tsar Bomba) said above.

For those folks who are experiencing difficulty in viewing YouTube videos at work, my guess is that your company is blocking YouTube via the company firewall. There are a few reasons for this:

1. Productivity. They want employees working and might believe that watching YouTube videos hinders productivity.

2. Bandwidth. Video consumes much more bandwidth than text or audio and bandwidth costs money.

3. Legal. Someone might feel "harassed" by video content on another employee's screen and sue the company for a hostile work environment.

If you're having difficulty on a non-work network it might be a browser setting such as not allowing Adobe Flash to play or auto play.

yes there's a big blank spot. I have no problem seeing you tube videos on my browser. if I go to you tube. do a search, or even from other forums I belong to. can someone just post the URL's to the videos? I'll just paste them into my address bar . or even just the name of the video and I'll do a google search.

jerryd posted a video on Fri Feb 03, 2017 5:17 am (Central Time). The screen capture image attached shows what it looks like in my browser.

flynbulldog sounds like you don't see this. If you right click on the place where the video should be does a menu pop up with any options such as sjown in the 2nd attached screen capture?

Did you try a reply with quote & then grab the URL out of the YouTube link? A bit clunky but it might work.

Tried it on my Android phone. Same results (that's an assumption). Took this screen shot. I'm speculating, from the bar at the bottom of the picture, that the video wouldn't load because I don't have sufficent free memory on my phone. ::shrug::
