SOURCE: MY EMAC G4 WONT PLAY FLASH PLAYER ANYMORE...

You may want to upgrade your OS to a newer system. You can also update Quicktime and that may make a difference as well.
If you're running 10.3, you may want to move up to .4.

SOURCE: Mac freezes w/skipping audio streaming video

This is a fascinating problem, because there are so many possible culprits... plugins, Quicktime, networking...
Because it only happens on streaming media, because it comes and goes a week at a time, and because you have a satellite connection, my first suspicions fall on your internet service. However, this would be unwieldy to prove. The obvious experiment would be to carry your computer to a friend's place where you could use non-satellite broadband... but you say the problem comes and goes, and I'm assuming there is no single "video from heck" that is always guaranteed to fail, so a failure to fail wouldn't prove very much.
Another good experiment would be for you, during one of your "good weeks," to disconnect your satellite modem's coax cables while you are streaming one of these videos to see if it triggers the same failure at the Mac. (Powering the modem down wouldn't provide the same failure mode.)
Another: Quicktime Player (as well as VLC) has an "open URL" option. If you use that instead of a browser during a "bad week" to view videos, does the failure also occur? (That would rule out the plugins.)
One thing I can advise you: don't bother running disk repair, this problem isn't anywhere near your disk.
I wish I could point a finger and say "your problem is definitely here," but that isn't going to happen with this problem. The best I can do is provide some tests to help you narrow it down.

SOURCE: imac Flash Player locks up Bluetooth then crashes

Do you know for a fact that Bluetooth is at all involved? Try attaching a wired mouse -- if the wired mouse also freezes, the problem does not involve Bluetooth.
Flash is notorious for causing system problems on Macintoshes. Try reinstalling the most recent version of Flash.

SOURCE: Integrating MAC with Philips TV & DVD Player to BOSE Companion 5

The best option here is to use your TV as a secondary monitor for your iMac. Doing so would require the correct type of connector in your case a mini-DVI to HDMI connector.
Once it is connected, you have three options - you can have it mirror what's going on on your iMac's display, have it act as extra monitor 'real estate' - that is to say extra space that you can drag windows onto and so on - or you can have the TV act as your primary monitor.
All of these options can be changed when your TV is connected through Apple menu > System Preferences > Display > Arrangement.

You don't really need to worry about the DVD player on the TV as the Mac OS has a DVD player application built into it. You can use it or the TV's DVD player, it's really up to you.

As for connecting both of them to the same speaker system, you should be able to purchase a connector that will go from the audio out port of your TV to the audio in on the back of your iMac. You would then be able to select the TV's output in Apple menu > system preferences > sound > input.

1) Make sure your Adobe Flash Player is up to date,

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

[ Advise click on the small square to the left of -
Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional
,and remove the green checkmark. THEN click on Download now ]

Be advised though, sometimes the new Adobe Flash Player download, will not automatically remove the old Adobe Flash Player version that is installed; and the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Tool is needed.

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Go to the bottom of this page. Under the bold subheading -
Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller - click on the blue - Tech Note.

On the following page go down to the subheading -
1. Download the uninstaller for Flash Player -
,and click on - uninstaller - in blue. (674 KB)

In the small window that comes up click on Save File.

Close all internet windows.

In the small download window that comes up next, allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

When you are finished with the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller, close all windows, restart the computer.
Now go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download the new Adobe Flash Player.


2) Make sure your Java is up to date,

http://www.java.com/en/

3) Sometimes I have found, that you have to click on Pause for the video, and allow it to download for a bit, then click on Play.

When watching videoes, why do they stop peroidically?


You may have an older version of the Adobe Flash Player installed that is causing problems. I've seen several notebooks that had issues playing video because they didn't have an updated Flash Player. Also, make sure that your browser is up to date.
Here are the links you need:

I'm running Windows XP. Using IE8, the youtube videos won't play. There is no warning or anything, just the video is black and there is no play button. On Google chrome, there is no problem with playing...


Well Sunkengarden, the videos you are watching on YouTube or any such websites are the Flash Player Applications. That means, the Browser on which you are trying watch the videos, needs Flash Player Application to be installed on your computer. Such traditionally most widely used flash players are Adobe Flash Player and Microsoft Silverlight.
While you are using Google Chrome, there is no problem just because of Google Chrome already have in-built flash player within it. But the problem remains for IE or other Browsers.
Different Web-Browsers use different types of Adobe Flash Players (IE type or Non-IE type). So, for best results, I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE Adobe Flash Players on your computer to have all the browsers play the videos without any problem.
Download the Flash Players by clicking on the following links:
Hope this helps,
Regards, Mrityunjay.

Youtube changed its file system from videos being in .flv format to .mp4, you'll have to wait for Sony to make the next move on restoring the PS3's ability to watch online video.
