Problem With YouTube


New Member
I wonder if any of you out there can advise with a problem with YouTube.

When attempting to watch any link posted in my emails or if I go to the site on my desktop, then once the 'ad' stops playing and the YouTube Video starts, it freezes my screen and the page is lost and I frequently get a message at the bottom of the screen asking if I wish to recover the webpage. Even if I do so, the exact same thing happens again. However, I have YouTube as an app and when I use that to start watching a video, I have no problem whatsoever.

Can anyone advise why this should be so. It would certainly be more convenient if I had the option to go straight to it from my desktop.
