Why are Youtube comments not loading?

If you are not sure what does the youtube comment not loading means, then it’s the condition when you can view the youtube video, like it, and post the comment as well but you are not able to view other people’s comments.

Sometimes the owner of the video disables the comment for the viewers. If that’s the case you cannot see the comment neither you can post it. But if you can post the comment and can’t see the comment then either there is no comment in that youtube video or you are suffering from the youtube comments not loading problem.

Now that you understand whether you are suffering from it or not let’s discuss how can you solve the problem?

Solutions for Youtube Comments Not Loading Problem 

As mentioned earlier we will discuss different methods to solve the problem. You should follow the methods in chronological order and the probability is that the problem will be fixed before you reach the last method. If you follow all of our solutions and still the problem is not resolved then you can try Youtube alternatives.

Solution 1: Refreshing the Website

The first step you should do is refresh the website and wait some time. There may be some temporary issue because of which the youtube comments not loading. You can also try closing the tab and opening it in a new tab.

If you still face the problem after refreshing a couple of times and even opening it in a new tab. It’s better to open the link in incognito mode.

You can open the incognito mode in the different browser by this shortcut:

Incognito Mode in Chrome:

  • Windows, Linux, or Chrome OS: Press Ctrl + Shift + n.
  • Mac: Press ⌘ + Shift + n.

Incognito Mode in Safari:

  • Shift + ⌘ + N.

Incognito Mode in Mozilla Firefox:

  • Windows, Linux, or Chrome OS: Press Ctrl + Shift + p.
  • Mac: Press ⌘ + Shift + p.

If Youtube comments not loading even in incognito mode, wait a few times. Maybe the problem is on the youtube side. There are many times when youtube faced internal problems because of which such a problem arises.

If you want to confirm either the problem is on the youtube side or not you can check out their Twitter page and see either other people are mentioning the issue or not.

If it’s not the problem on the youtube site and refreshing the website as well as opening it in incognito mode doesn’t solve your problem then head over to the next solution.

Solution 2: Changing the browser

You can switch to another browser to see if the youtube comment is loading there or not. If you can see the youtube comment in another browser then probably the problem is with your browser and you have to fix it. If you don’t know what is the problem with the browser you can try the following two steps:

1. Disabling the AdBlocker.

AdBlocker is a wonderful tool that makes our life way easier and prevents us from annoying ads but sometimes the AdBlocker causes some sites to crash. There are many incidents when the AdBlocker stops the youtube comment to load.

So, it’s better to disable the AdBlock and check either it is working or not.

Note: We suggest you disable the AdBlocker because its the only way of earning for most of the blogger and YouTuber like us. If we get something in return from a blog or youtube channel it keeps us motivated to continue our hard work and provide better content.

2. Disabling other plugins.

Sometimes there is a conflict between different plugins which causes different problems while browsing the internet. No to mention youtube not loading is comment is one of them. Moreover, sometimes the plugins/ extensions are corrupted or poorly built which causes problems. So, it’s always better to check whether the problem is caused by plugins or not. To do so simply disable all of your plugins and check YouTube again to see whether the comment is loading or not. If you see the comment enable each plugin one by one by constantly refreshing the youtube page to find out which plugin is preventing the youtube video to load.

If you are new to this word and don’t know the concept of VPN, then VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Using the VPN you can change your location and bypass some geo-restricted content. You can read more about VPNs here.

You don’t need the premium VPNs for viewing the comments. You can use the free Chrome VPN plugin (if you are using Chrome).

The steps for configuring the VPN are similar to all browsers. In this article, I will teach how to configure VPN in Opera to solve the youtube comment, not loading problem.

  1. First of all, navigate to the Chrome extension page for the VPN. (I will use Hola VPN for this tutorial).
  2. Click on “Add to Chrome/Opera”
