Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
This is how to solve the problem of not being able to play YouTube videos in your net browser.
The fact of the matter is that you do not have the appropriate version of Flash Player installed. You can get it here, it is free.
This will open the Flash Player web site containing the latest Flash Player.
Make sure you uncheck the box next to Include in your download if you do not wish to have a Google toolbar installed as well. Then all you have to do is click Download now.
The following page will open:
Right click on the security bar below your tabs and select Install This Add-on for All Users on This Computer...
After that an Internet Explorer - Security Warning window will be displayed, click Install.
Flash Player will now begin installing, let it complete.
Once installed, you may need to reboot your PC (I recommend that you do).
Now you should be able to watch YouTube videos in your web browser like normal. Every now and then check to see if a new version of flash player is available on their website.
Here are a few benefits by having Flash Player installed:
Support for mobile devices
Extend the reach of your content to users wherever they are. Flash Player delivers expressive content to personal computers, smartphones, tablets, smartbooks, and netbooks.
