    Screenshot (4).png Screenshot (5).png Screenshot (6).png Screenshot (7).png Since today YouTube refuses to either play a video, load the video acompanied by something along the lines of 'if playback doesn't start soon, restart device' or it does play but i only have audio and the screen is black or green.. I've already tried restarting, turning off/on adblock, clearing history. I just found out it also affects anime videos.. Can anyone help? Thanks!
