After updating to TOR 10 I've got "An Error Occurred ‘try again’ Playback ID on YouTube". I tried many ways to solve it, nothing helped, but the downgrade to the previous version.

  • For bug reports, you should make an issue on the gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser.

  • I have the exact same issue watching YouTube videos in Tor Browser 10.0 on Windows. However, watching YouTube in Tor Browser 10.0 works fine on Linux. I don't know what causes the issue. Sep 24, 2020 at 21:03

Update 1700 UTC 2020-09-24: After investigating the error seen by Windows users while playing videos on Youtube, a user helped us identify the cause. Until this is fixed in an upcoming release, a workaround is setting media.rdd-opus.enabled as false in about:config.
