    I have read similar complaints on other sites too. Besides the sound issue, videos are getting stuck randomly.

    It seems to be a YouTube bug. I guess they will correct it in few hours.

    Nope my youtube works fine. Looking at so many people having this it's might be affecting a vast majority of people but not me.

    I noticed this, but I read somewhere that it's mostly done for vids that have copyright issues. Not sure if this is true or not.

    The one thing I do find is the vids are blurry at times, again, mostly the beginning part. Is this blurriness happening for anyone else?

    Happens to me also. Probably just a bug in their player update.

    maybe some kind of anti view selling method ?

    it could be the new retention factor ... player interaction ... just to see which views are real and which are not

    Probably gearing up for pay to play "better" videos. I just looked at my once huge playlist accumulated from other people and well over 3/4 has been removed... true story

    Noticed it the last two days. Im thinking it might be a double verification of actual views ? ie will a bot go to the volume bar to turn it up..

    Or I might be thinking too much.

    And here is me thinking his computer would troll him again. :p
    I'm not thinking it's a double verification though - prolly a bug.
    But then again it's YT/Google, so who knows.
