Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have installed the most up to date flash player from Adobe, with the most recent updates. However, when I come to using a website with flash content I am told I do not have the correct flash player and need to install it. I have re-installed several times but still have the same problem. Thinking it maybe a registry problem, I installed a program called Error Smart that found hundreds of errors which it resolved, but still I have the same problem with flash content. I am running Windows XP home edition and IE7. I really hope you can help.

Hi Greg,
there are many sites on the web that are using old content and the problem may be that the program you are trying to access is so old that the new flash player cant read it. Also the problem may be on their side, you might ask a friend to try and get into this particular site.

that said theres a couple things we can try here.
First off, i dont know if you know this is but Youtube.com is written in flash so if you can see the videos there then your flash player is working correctly which means that the trouble is not on your pc but on the site itself and they should be notified of the error.

Secondly there is another web browser you can use to help troubleshoot this and its as good as IE7 if not better called firefox. All the nerds like myself usually have both on our pcs and i personally use only firefox. which you can get here . the reason we would try another browser is to see if the problem is really on your side or their side. If you still cant see the websites flash and get the error that your flash is the wrong version then the problem is on their side.

That said it is also possible that your security settings in IE7 are blocking the content. Its possible to change the security settings to a lower state by going to tools>Internet options>security and messing with the settings there, although i dont advise running around the internet on low or no security as it could be harmful to your PC's health.

I hope this helps and if you have any further questions i'll be more than happy to answer.

Download the latest free Adobe flash player its free. Java has nothing to do with adobe .
If java is out of date it can be downloaded or updated for free also . But I did have an issue with the latest release of Java not working with Netdania charts. Had to use the past previous later version to get java to work.

Can't download adobe flash player nor can I. View you tube material


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

You don't say where you are trying to download Flash Player from. If it is not from the official Adobe site, then the source file may be corrupted.

Flash Player may be installed/partially installed but corrupted and the download can't rectify the corrupted files.

Flash player is required to view YouTube Video clips. This is why you cannot use Youtube properly until you have resolved the Flash Player problem.

Uninstall Flash Player and all its components in Add or Remove Programs > restart the computer > download and install the latest version of Flash Player from:

www.adobe.com

Restart your computer after the download > try YouTube again.

Update Flash Player regularly to keep it up to date (you should get regular alerts to update).

I hope this helps.

Adobe flash plug in has been crushed


If the flash player has crashed once, then it may not be a problem but if this is occurring repeatedly, then try to upgrade your flash player. If your flash player is up-to-date, then it may be the incompatibility between the flash player and the web-browser. In that case, try to have both the most recent updated browsers, like Mozilla Firefox 4, Google Chrome 12 or IE 8 or IE 9 and corresponding updated flash player.

To download latest softwares, click on the links below:
  1. Adobe Flash Player IE (for Internet Explorer, Avant,etc)
  2. Adobe Flash Player Non-IE (for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc)
  3. Mozilla Firefox 4 RC
  4. Google Chrome 12 Beta
If you use Firefox or Chrome as browser, then Flash Player for Non-IE is sufficient, but still I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE flash players.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Mrityunjay

My Samsung laptop is not letting me use some websites such as Youtube and CourseRank. The website opens but the videos of youtube don't work. I can't use any scheduling websites because the schedules...


Try installing Adobe Flash, and update your web browser (go to Help-Check for Updates or alike).
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

Youtube's videos are flash-based so you'll need the flash player installed. Also, many rich-web applications are flash based which also need the flash player to run well. After you download and install the flash player from the link above, everything should work just fine.

Why not run video


Hi,

Videos on YouTube are streamed through Adobe Flash player. If you're having trouble playing and viewing videos YouTube, we suggest you install the latest version of the Flash player: this will allow you to easily play YouTube videos.
Here's how to upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe's Flash Player:
  1. Before installing the most recent version of Adobe Flash player, you will need to first uninstall any older versions of the Flash player you've installed in the past and currently have running on your computer.

    Please completely uninstall the version of Flash you're currently running, before upgrading to the most recent version. To uninstall Flash, follow Adobe's instructions, listed here. You'll need to download Adobe's official Uninstaller to remove Flash.

  2. Once you've uninstalled the older version of Flash, you'll be ready to upgrade to the most recent version of Flash.
    To upgrade to the most recent version of the Flash player, please follow these steps:

    1. Follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling the most recent version of Flash.
    2. Once you've downloaded the latest version of Adobe Flash, please exit your browser.
    3. Finally, click to install the update that you just downloaded to your computer from the Adobe Flash site.
      Once you've done so, open your browser again and go to YouTube. You should now be able so successfully watch videos!

If the instructions above don't resolve the issue, please also try the following:
  1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
  2. Allow YouTube.com as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
  3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.

For Windows Vista users:
If the Flash uninstall / reinstall does not work this maybe due to a Microsoft Windows Vista permissions issue.
Please use the Windows button at the bottom left then the search function:
  • Go to: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\.
  • Right-click on the following file: FlashUtil9b.exe or FlashUtil9e.exe.
  • Select "Run as Administrator" and install the update..
  • Restart your computer.
Please post your feedback and vote if the issue is resolved as per your satisfaction.

I installed the acrobat and my java is on , but still getting the message. it was working fine in one day everything changed


You said you installed Acrobat, which won't help in any way. YouTube uses the Adobe Flash Player to display the videos you watch on the site every day. Flash Player is a plug-in for your web browser, and like most software it is updated periodically by Adobe. Users with the most recent version of Flash, Flash Player 10, experience improved performance such as smoother playback when watching videos on YouTube. Here's a link to download and install it...
