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 onhttp://groups.google.com/group/alt.fan.m... eg http://www.houndsofheaven.com/baner.htm and http://www.rocketcitychorus.com/Chorus.h..., 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

I seemed to have lost my sound just to utube


No sound on YouTube videosIf you don't hear sound on YouTube videos, please try the following steps:
  1. Adjust the volume control on your computer and speakers.
  2. Adjust the volume control located in the lower left corner of the YouTube Video Player.
  3. Restart your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
  4. Ensure that the volume is turned up on other video players, such as Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player, as this might affect the video player sound.
If you still have no sound after trying the steps above, you may want to try the steps below:
  1. Install the latest version of Adobe Flash (necessary for streaming YouTube videos) after removing any old versions you've installed. Learn how to install the most recent version of Adobe Flash player.
  2. Allow third-party Flash content on your computer by visiting the Adobe Flash Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try re-playing the Live Event.
    Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.
  3. Check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third-party Flash content.

These days every programs have started explaining things by showing you a video clips which requires downloading through a software called adobe flash player. The process of downloading is quite time...


Adobe Flash Player is an add-on on browsers like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. it plays a vital part in playing video clips as it is interpreting the video file to play on the browser. Also you can update to the latest version so that you will be able to watch video clips automatically. One thing that might be the cause of the slow download is your internet connection. You can ask assistance from your Internet Service Provider to check what is the speed of your Internet. You can get the latest Adobe Flash Player from Adobe.com and by clicking on the link on the right part of the page to download the latest version of Flash Player.

If there's no problem with your internet connection speed, updating the flash player and quicktime will fix it.
Click here to download the latest Adobe Flash Player, open the link, download and install it. Restart the browser and try again.
(the latest version is adobe flash player 10, if it's already installed, uninstall and reinstall the version 9.0)
Click here to download Quicktime Player.

It's also important to restart your computer after you are done installing.


Clear all the temporary internet files, caches, cookies after closing the browser and try again. To clear the temporary internet files, cookies etc.. go to control panel open the "Internet Options" click the "Delete" button on the general tab, confirm it and restart your computer. Now try playing the youtube videos again.

The most common issue is the internet connection speed and the system configuration.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM?


What browser are you using? Firefox? Internet Explorer? I have had this same problem. Try to uninstall the flash player and reinstall it. If that doesn't work and you are using Firefox, try to
uninstall and reinstall Firefox, just remember to save (export) your bookmarks first. Good Luck.
