Fix Videos And Games Not Loading In Chrome

Videos And Games Not Loading

Are your videos and games not loading, whether you’re on YouTube, or playing online games, or any other form of media? Maybe they tend to load for long or very slowly, go blank or show a grey box instead of the intended media? Perhaps Chrome is frozen while you’re loading the media, or it just decided to crash?

While these issues create much anxiety and frustration, you can get them fixed whether you’re using a computer, Android or iOS device, using the steps provided below.
