    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

Can't download adobe flash player nor can I. View you tube material


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

You don't say where you are trying to download Flash Player from. If it is not from the official Adobe site, then the source file may be corrupted.

Flash Player may be installed/partially installed but corrupted and the download can't rectify the corrupted files.

Flash player is required to view YouTube Video clips. This is why you cannot use Youtube properly until you have resolved the Flash Player problem.

Uninstall Flash Player and all its components in Add or Remove Programs > restart the computer > download and install the latest version of Flash Player from:

www.adobe.com

Restart your computer after the download > try YouTube again.

Update Flash Player regularly to keep it up to date (you should get regular alerts to update).

I hope this helps.

How do i get my flash player to stop pausing every 2 seconds


Hi,
Flash Player is a software for viewing animations and movies using computer programs such as a web browser. If you encounter that your flash player pauses every 2 seconds, maybe that is not an error. Maybe, the video that you are watching is just buffering. My suggestion to that is just click pause first and let the video buffer. Once it is completed loading play it. But if it is still pausing, you may uninstall it on your computer and install an updated flash player. You may use this link to download the latest flash player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!!

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.

When i open youtube . site is open but when i clik on video a massage displays that is "Try again"


It sounds to me like your flash player installation is corrupted, in order to correct this you will need to uninstall the program and reinstall it again.

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Programs

Proceed to click on Adobe Flash Player, then uninstall. Follow the prompts that come up and uninstall flash player. Your computer will most likely need to reboot, if so go ahead and do that, if not then you can move onto the next step.

Go to Adobe's site here http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and click on Download Now. A dialog box will open, download the file someplace easily accessed, such as your desktop. Certain web browsers may attempt to block the file from download, if this happens there should be a dialog box at the top of the website that will allow access for you to download from adobe's website, go ahead and click allow.

Once you have the file downloaded to your desktop, go ahead and double click the Adobe flash player icon and follow the subsequent dialog boxes, once flash is reinstalled you may once again have to restart your computer. Once this is all finished you should be able to play youtube videos again.

I have a R90L200 ereader..how to you install a flash player


Hi there,

You can download the popular ADOBE FLASH player here http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP
This player will enable you to view flash websites and flash players online like youtube.

If you want a stand alone player that can play .FLV formats (video clips downloaded from youtube and the like), you can use Media Player Classic with XP Codec Pack. You can download it here http://www.free-codecs.com/download/XP_Codec_Pack.htm

Keep me posted.

My adobe flash plugins are crashing


This seems to me to be your Internet speed may be affecting the flash player it has to have certain DPI's to be able to play a movie or program. You can try downloading it again the flash player at adobe.com or setting the flash player to a lower rating, when I had problems with flash it was my system and not the software program.
Try closing windows that are open as well if any. Clean the machine of any junk and do a defrag on the drive. Less is best also check services that are running and how many programs are also running with the startup. Sound like a computer issue and not the flash player keeping up with the memory of your video card, increase system memory and possibly a new card with more video capabilities. Hope this assisted you. John

When i try to play videos from youtube.com I cant get any sound even when I turn the volumne button up on the video


try this
  1. Visit a web page with a Flash video embedded on the page.
  2. Click on the Flash video to activate the Flash plugin (only on SP2 or above), then right click on video to display the Flash properties menu. flash-settings.jpg
  3. Click on “Settings” on contextual menu, then click the “Advanced…” button. flash-advanced-settings.jpg
  4. A new web page window will launch loading Adobe – Flash Player – Manager. On the left pane, click on “Global Storage Settings Panel” link under “Flash Player Help Settings Manager” sub-section under “Table of Contents” section.
  5. A Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager applet will load on the right pane as a Flash object. Check (tick) the “Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer” checkbox so that it’s checked. The settings should be auto-save, if the setting is not saved, try to close all Internet Explorer or Firefox web browser windows and launch the Flash Manager to set the option again. flash-global-storage-settings.jpg
  6. Try to play Flash video. The sound should be played properly.
If the above guide does not solve the problem that video clips from Youtube, VideoSift, Break, Google Videos, Dailymotion, Yahoo, and other video sharing websites play no sound on external sites while audio output fine when viewing the video on video hosting sites itself. Another possible cause is that the Flash contents which is cached get corrupted or damaged, preventing audio streaming from working correctly (Most video sharing sites use Flash video technology to deliver video and audio streaming). To solve this possible corruption, try to use the following hack.
  1. Download and install CCleaner, a freeware system optimization and privacy tool that able to remove unused files from system, and clean traces of online activities.
  2. Run CCcleaner, uncheck and unselect everything that is selected in both Windows and Applications tabs for Cleaner function, except the option of Macromedia Flash Player, located under Multimedia branch in Applications tab. Ensure that all other options are unselected, or else there may be unforeseen sequences including unable to boot your computer. ccleaner.png
  3. Click on “Analyze” button, and when finished, click on “Run Cleaner” button when done. This will clean and clear out the old downloaded Flash caches.
  4. Try to load the embedded videos again, the sound should output fine now.

Get sound fine but video wants to start, then


just go to the adobe website and click on the update flash player button, it should automatically update your flash play. Alternativly use this link to download and install it manually.

http://download.cnet.com/Flash-Player/3000-2378_4-10001055.html

That should sort out the problem, sometimes your web browser will block the updates from Adobe due to security restrictions. Also you need to be an administrator on your computer to install the update.
