If the twitter videos not loading, you can try to do several things, whether you watch them through the web or through the official mobile application, the truth is, it can cause an inconvenient and frustrating situation because you cannot see the video What did you want to see.

At a certain point Internet connection may fail, the application may have an error or other incident that prevents the correct display of any Twitter video, although it should be checked if this occurs with a specific video or with everyone in general.



Be that as it may, what it is about is that you can watch the video as always by performing some procedure to try to correct that problem that does not make you see it, you can try different things and we will indicate them in the next one, so do not hesitate to try them.

No internet connection

One of the main reasons why Twitter videos won't load is that you don't have an internet connection on your mobile phone or the web, so that's the first thing you should check to see if that's the problem. It would be enough to enter Google or another page and verify it.

When you don't have internet, not only the videos won't load, but the application won't update your feed or work any twitter section for you, i.e. it affects the app in general, although it can also be due to other causes like we will mention

bug video

Another reason you can't see a twitter video because it won't load is because the video itself has some kind of error that doesn't let you see it, so surely you won't be the only one who won't see it, but other people won't be able to see it either..



You will realize that this is the case because even if you access via the web the video still does not load and you can even find other people comments in said video warning that it does not load so that would confirm that it does not work.

Twitter collapse

It might not be your problem i.e. it's not your internet connection or anything related but simply the social network is inactive and when that happens no video will work for you, but you won't be able to access your lists, see your private messages etc

When Twitter goes down it is not possible to update the feed, nor upload photos and videos, so it is a good option to check that Twitter is indeed down to verify that this is the case, if so, you have no choice but to wait for the service to work again.

Application bug

It can also happen that the app has an error which makes it impossible for you to watch videos and this, in general, has no solution, unless you check that you have a pending Twitter update in the app store and proceed to install it in your phone, then update it with the same procedure as you can update whatsapp.

It is very different if you access Twitter from the web, in case it is an error in the social network (which is unlikely), there is no choice but to wait for it to be resolved, although in that case all videos should fail and not just one of them.


Problems on your mobile phone or computer

After ruling out the internet connection problem and verifying that you can access the network without any problems, the problem may be on your mobile phone or computer. Due to unknown circumstances, any of these devices may not be able to play videos.


One of the best solutions is restart your phone or computer, this simple action that takes no more than 2 or 3 minutes can solve the problem and the videos can be loaded and viewed again without problems as before.


There are several reasons why twitter videos not loading, some are easily fixed and some are not, but if you see this circumstance repeating over time, you should consider whether your phone, tablet or computer has a problem with these videos.
