If you are familiar with YouTube you will probably try to guess by now, what I am going to talk about. On the other hand, if you only browse YouTube once in a blue moon…never mind!

Okay, most of us try refreshing the page a 100 times when the video has encountered an error such as: “An error occurred, please try again later.” Or we would try in a short while. And get to the point where it becomes ridiculous; whatever you do wont make the video play. NOT even from your friends computer. Duh!!! I am sick of trying.
