    Are you trying to watch videos on your kindle or PC? For kindle I would try updating the YouTube app and also check if flash player is up to date if your on your PC also check flash player and if you have any add blockers installed sometimes block videos from being played

    I've found Youtube videos load faster and play better if you "unhighlight" the HD toggle in the upper righthand corner.

    When on my Kindle Fire I like to watch YouTube videos in the mobile Web view. The videos seem to play better and in full screen for me when using the mobile page. To do this on your Fire go to the "Web" tap the address bar at the top, change the "www" to "m", and tap the "Go" button. So it should be http://m.youtube.com instead of http://www.youtube.com

    This is one of the few mobile views that I use, as I usually like the regular webpage view. Hope this helps.

    Hope you are finding it easier to view on YouTube. Don't know about the virus question. I believe I got a virus from watching videos one time, but don't think it came from YouTube.
