    My problem is similar, but I only can't play videos on disney.com. Trying to get to pixiehollow.com, I get "can't initialize app controller" error. Have uninstalled and reinstalled flash, cleaned registry, scanned for malware, etc, etc, nothing seems to work. Videos work fine on other sites and disney.com works on other computers.

    I downloaded the K-lite codec Pack, maybe that will fix my problem. I couldn't play movies from hulu.com with my Adobe 10 flash player, but I could play them on real player.

    I just went to hulu and played 10 minutes of a movie and it played OK

    Thanks chinmay_lp

Hi,
I think the problem is with the Codec.Different types of video formats require appropriet codec to play.I suggest you to install the require codec to play videos.You can download and install K-Lite Codec Pack, which include all the major video format's codec's.

You can download it from http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

Please try this solution and if you have any problem then revert back.

Thank you

How do i keep sloping in youtube


Do you mean the video takes ages to load and then plays a bit then stops - then plays a bit more than stops?

If you do the problem could be your flash player. You might need to update your Adobe flash player. It's free, just search for Adobe flash player online.
Once that is done if it still does it then you might not have sufficent memory on your computer or a memory problem. Another reason could be slow broadband. Faults on your phone line can cause problems that you might only notice when downloading video, which takes a lot of memory. Your broadband provider might have capped your download speed. Check out one of those broadband speed testers on the internet to see what you are getting.
The faster your proccessor on your computer the more quickly the videos will load. If your computer is doing several actions at once that will slow the speed down. So you can stop them by closing programs that are running.

Download the Adobe Flash Player or plugin again. It might be corrupt. Most times when the message appears there will be a link that you can click to start the download process to get what it needs. If so, click it.

The music videos won't play


Hi, the videos may not play if the Adobe Flash Player in the computer may corrupt or not updated to latest version. Please download and install the latest version of the Mozilla Firefox and then download and install the Adobe Flash Player. Please restart the Mozilla Firefox and visit the Youtube. Now the Videos should be playing.

Please search in google as Mozilla Firefox and Adobe Flash Player to get the download link for the Mozilla Firefox and Adobe Flash Player.

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.
