As a test, create a new, clean Profile & see if YT works there.

What are "other video"?

(YT would not be using Flash.)

Youtube is working very well for me on PM 28 on Windows 10 Home.
Like someone else suggested, try a new profile.
I'm using Pale Moon version 28.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

There is no 'reset Pale Moon' option when I go to help>troubleshooting information.
I created a new profile with the Pale Moon profile manager but video still won't play from Youtube.

EDIT: Hitting pause then play usually works, but the video won't start automatically.

Is media.autoplay.enabled under about:config set to true or false?

I don't know what the deal is..A few videos played fine but another I tried had audio with no video (completely white).

EDIT: Downloaded another browser. Same issue with that particular video.. Let's call this fixed now.. Thanks for your help.

That fixed it for me, thanks. Win 7 64 Did it get flipped by PM 28 or what?

I just tried 7 vids in a row and no problem yet...

It did not get flipped by default - you (or an extension you used) must have set it that way.
