YouTube Video Ends Early/Abruptly

Recently I have some problems viewing some of the videos on YouTube. The video will ends abruptly/early. I took me a while to figure out that it is not the YouTuber that ends the video suddenly, but rather it is the problem with the video player itself! The problem only happens when the video contain annotation at the end. (See below for the example of annotation)

I’m not sure if this happens to other web browser, but for my case it happens with Firefox. To solve this problem, you’ll need to clear your web browser cache or cookies for YouTube. To clear it in Firefox, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the menu.

    Open the menu.

    Open the menu.

  2. Select Options.

    Select Options.

    Select Options.

  3. Go to Privacy and click on “remove individual cookies”.

    Go to Privacy and click on "remove individual cookies".

    Go to Privacy and click on “remove individual cookies”.

  4. Search for “youtube”. And then select all the cookies (select multiple cookies by holding the shift button). Then click on the “Remove Selected” button. The close.

    Remove cookies.

    Remove cookies.

  5. Now you should be able to view the entire video without any problem.

    Hey dude! Sorry for posting this unrelated comment but it looked like the only way to contact you.
    Since 2004 I’ve been coming to the Strawberries’ fan site to download the whole series. I’ve reread it so many times and I wanted to do so know. Would you very kindly send me an updated link to your folder? It could even be temporary or private…

    Thanks for letting me reread one of my favorite works ever so many times.
    My email is ilmionomecominciaconlay — at — gmail — dot — com

    I’ll delete the comment once I’ll hopefully get an answer from you!

    Cheers ????
