How can I fix Youtube videos showing only black with sound in iOS Safari?


I frequently encounter this problem in iOS Safari: I want to watch a Youtube video and it starts playing, but the viewing area is entirely black, although I can still hear the audio. Is there any kind of hack that will get the videos to play normally, with a 100% success rate? Quite often I have to update several times (> 5) to get the videos to start playing.

Forcing Safari to quit works reliably for me. Double click the Home button, tap ‘X’ on Safari.
