    On my lenovo t530 I have a mini displayport adapter that I connect to my tv for home use. When I do NOT have the cable plugged in, I can play youtube videos just fine. When the cable is plugged IN, youtube videos do not load. They buffer, but they will not play. Netflix, hulu, and any other video software loads just fine. Picture is fine, audio is fine, but youtube videos exclusively do not work. What do I do?

    edit: I have done some further research. When I close the lid on my laptop and the tv screen is the main display, youtube will not work. But if I have the lid open and my tv is the extended display, the same video loads just fine with the mini displayport cable in. I hope this helps!
