    I suppose it's a fromat/file type thing, sounds like you have a handle on it.

There is a hack that you can use to change OS but BE AWARE that you LOSE a lot of FUNCTIONALITY and it is NOT recommended. And NO, you CANNOT put Windows on it. The hardware is a different beast and not based on your "normal" x86 processors, so nop.

Archos is BAAAAD in the customer support area. They make capable units but when it comes time to support it, they are worst than most companies (except Korean products!! can not play videos from internet on archos7 160gb - razz.gif)

Agree... I enjoy my A7 for what it is, a great PMP with Wifi Capabilities even if it's not the most up-to-date device.

Problem playing video on my ASUS Transformer.

Hi Sam, are you familiar with the "buffer bar" when playing videos? It is the part of the video timeline that extends beyond where you've watched so far and it shows how much of the show is preloaded and ready for you to watch. If that buffer bar (usually grey) is too small or right at where you've watched to, then it means that something in your set up isn't fast enough to keep up with the show.

it could mean that you need to let your video start, and then pause it for a while to let it load before starting to watch. It may mean that you need to clean up your computer that may be bogged down with junk. Try using CCleaner from Pirform downloadable on Cnet
(Product reviews and prices software downloads and tech news CNET).

It could mean that your computer is simply not fast enough to handle never videos with higher definition that require more power to load quickly. So, if cleaing your computer doesn't help, then you may need to upgrade your RAM. Use ctrl+alt+delete to open the task manager, and use this to check the processor and RAM loads. This may take some googling to figure out. Processors can be hard to nearly impossible to switch, but RAM is easy, but may cost $40-$80 depending on what you need. Here is a website to find reliable products called Crucial (Compatible upgrades Guaranteed). It botched the link name, but it works.

Good luck!

How do i get flash on my archos 101 as it will not play youtube videos

This is how to solve the problem of not being able to play YouTube videos in your net browser.
The problem is that you do not have the appropriate version of Flash Player installed. You can get it here.

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 insalled aswell. Then 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.

Once installed, you may need to reboot your PC. Now you should be able to watch YouTube videos in your web browser like normal.
