Without a doubt, one of the most used platforms in the world is YouTube, where we find millions of videos of all kinds and where, as users with our Google account, we will be able to create channels to upload our own videos..

 

 

However, a frequent error is that videos on YouTube are not reproduced correctly. This is an error that can occur due to internal factors such as errors in the computer's network resource or external factors such as failures in the YouTube servers themselves.

 

Whatever the cause, TechnoWikis will give you a series of solutions to correct this error in Google Chrome and make YouTube videos play on your PC..

1 Why don't YouTube videos play on my PC by disabling hardware acceleration

Step 1

To deactivate this function we open Chrome and we will go to "Customize and control Google Chrome - Settings":
