A GREEN screen may be a sign that your Cache, Memory or PageFiling are filled-up and can't take any more, especially if you've viewed a lot of vids.   Simply delete your Cache, Cookies and History; then clear your Memory with a shutdown & fresh reboot. Afterwards, you'll freak at how good and trouble-free your YouTube will be. Other possibilities + solutions: -- Turn off your modem AND router for 30 seconds, and then turn them back on again. -- Right-click any video, click "Settings" and uncheck "Enable Hardware Acceleration". -- Disable any Adblocking software, play a video; then you can re-enable the Adblock. -- You may have a conflict with another Player (like Mozilla Shumway or Real Player).    If that's the case, disable/uninstall it, and when you'd like it back, simply reinstall it. -- Disable your AV utility while on YouTube, since you can't get a virus from YouTube. -- You may unknowingly be using ''HTML5'' rather than "Flash''. To be sure, click here and opt out. :-)
