AVG, wtf

Does anyone having problems lately with playing YouTube videos after updating to the latest version of AVG? I'm not sure why, but AVG is blocking me from streaming on YouTube yet I can stream fine on other sides such as Veoh. If you have similar problems or possible solutions, please post!

EDIT: Sorry, I'm not sure what's going on, but apparently I can load 75% of all YouTube videos now. It is my assumption that it's really YouTube's fault and they're fixing stuff...I think. There could be no other reason why I'm slowly able to view them again...right?

Which version of AVG is that? I'm using AVG AS with YouTube and it is fine. One thing I did notice is that YouTube runs some of its flash off another site which made my noscript go gah gah. Could it be related?

*Edit*

Just tried AVG AV Free 7.5 and it has no trouble with YouTube.

Actually, this could be related to the new Flash 9.0. I'm not sure what's really happening, but if I end the avg processes in the Windows Task Manager, then I'm able to watch YouTube. It's not that I can't watch flash, but YouTube won't load. I tried turning on AVG then watch the videos that were already loaded, and they work fine. However, the new ones won't load. I'm really not sure now if it's an AVG or Flash issue, or both.

And I did try to uninstall flash, restart, and re-install it like YouTube says. And I also have AVG 7.5. YouTube did also say that new Flash makes it so you cannot upload videos to YouTube from FireFox (the browser I'm using). Could this be related?

I have no problems with the AVG 7.5 server edition here. I am using flash player version 9.0.47.0.

I haven't noticed anything odd like that (I use firefox and avg as well). The only odd thing I've noticed since the flash update is that certain sites with flash now prevent Youtube videos from opening in another tab unless I close the tab with the site on it.

Perhaps AVG is scanning the stream as it arrives?

Does it automatically scan objects downloaded from the web? If so, try turning that feature off and see if it helps.

Now I would turn it off only temporary, because this feature saved me once (okay that doesn't sound like much... but what do I know, how much trouble this could have meant ). Afaik this component is called resident shield in AVG.
