Adobe flash player doesn't play videos on the internet

Whenever I try to play a video it is always interrupted. A word or two or a sound is heard, then there is a long silence, followed by another word or sound, then silence, and so it goes on.

I uninstalled Adobe flash player and reinstalled it but this doesn't help.

    I just installed a new hard drive in my laptop (Acer TM 3000), and, after having to dl the audio drivers from the acer website, all my audio seems to work fine (eg itunes, regular windows sounds, skype, etc), except for sites like youtube and myspace. Some background music is played on some websites (following instructions on eg and, the second of which apparently confirms my javascript is switched on and working).

    It doesn't seem to be only the sound, though, because the actual videos themselves (youtube, myspace) don't play either - the files download, and will play a couple of seconds of video. Seems like quite a few people have this problem! :(

Try to pause the video and then let it load for a few minutes before you play it again. it may be a bandwidth problem

My youtube videos freeze

This is typically because your internet connection is not fast enough to stream the content. There for once it has played all presently downloaded content it will stop and while it downloads more of the video.

Youtube video only plays after having to switch to full screen then back if not it only plays sound and when clicked on video multiple time bits show up also it looks like or might be something to do with...

Is your flash player up to date? Because you have to install different flash-players for i.e. IE and Firefox, please go to your system's settings an deinstall the current flash player.

Afterwards download the installation package from and try it again.

When i go onto youtube some of the videos do not play but the sound works just fine and it loads the video just fine but the video remains frozen as the sound plays.the computer will play some youtube...

Some of the videos on youtube are in HD Now!!, thats means they are much bigger files, and thats using more bandwith and computeressources, if you not have this on the computer the video will been seen as clips.

Another solution :

Go to adobe and have only the window/tab with adobe and no other browsers open, it is wery inportant, then try to install the flash player again( some times when you install the flash player with other internet sites open the flash player do not install itself properly)

Hope thats helps, or return here
