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.
