I am having the same problem. Temp fix was to delete Slimbrowser and reinstall it. But this morning it suddenly stopped playing videos. I am getting a failure of Adobe Flash player. Problem is that Flash player is built into Win10.

Further info, I am using an Alienware 15" with Windows 10. It is only a year old and this problem has only started in the last two months. I also noticed that I am running a 32bit version of Slimbrowser. Is there a 64 bit version out there?

I am also getting Slimbrowser lockups from time to time.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

OK good news I totally deleted Slimbrowser including all the defaults which I was warned not to delete (had to otherwise nothing changed). Now YouTube does play videos but Yahoo page is still screwed up. The Yahoo page thing started after the Win10 update.

Now the YouTube fix last time only lasted 2-3 weeks. I can only hope someone at Slimbrowser can figure out a fix.

Again for me YouTube thinks Adobe Flash isn't installed. BUT when I check Flash at their website they tell me that Flash is native to Win10 and it does run their test.

Now I got to figure out how to fix the default page business.

Problem -- SlimBrowser 8.00.001 Not playing YouTube videos in Windows 10 Pro.
YouTube Screen said I needed to get (download) latest FlashPlayer.

*** Solution *** -- I finally Discovered that YouTube.com was listed in *** "Compatibility View List" *** Rendering Mode "ie 7.0" (?)
I deleted the Line Entry => Domain = "YouTube.com" -- Rendering Mode = "ie 7.0" and Now YouTube Works!!!

Tools--Compatibility Setting--Edit User Compatibility View List...-- (Delete =>Line Entry) "YouTube.com -- i.e. 7.0"

YouTube.com Now Works Using I.E. 11.0 Rendering Mode !!! :D

If SlimBrowser still can play YouTube videos on your Windows 10 computer, you can check this tutorial: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... 04ed2414bf and this one: http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/ti ... rking.html Hope these guides can be helpful.
