The abc site uses Flash and while the PS3 supports Flash it's not 100% solid.

I'm assuming you're using firmware 2.60, can you verify this?

Trying to watch abc.com laptop telling me i need to install newer version of adobe flash player. i did. still not playing, still telling me i need to install.????turned off and back on 3 times.


First of all debbie, you CAN NOT UPDATE FLASHPLAYER ON THE PS3! Now, that being said, believe it or not, abc has changes some policies regarding internet viewing. Unless you are a PAID subscriber to them, you will not be able to stream anything from abc.com. And oh! I just realized your question was about a laptop, but you've posted it under the SONY PLAYSTATION 3 console page.

Red light lower right of ring E74 ERROR ON SCREEN ON XBOX.Can i fix it myself?


I've had friends with the E74 error, and unfortunately it is not covered under the same extended warranty as the red ring of death. However, if you got your Xbox in the last year or so, it should still be covered under the factory warranty, so call up Microsoft Support. Actually, call Microsoft Support anyway, sometimes the warranty information gets lost in the system.

So, providing you can't get satisfaction from their support line, I did come across two videos on youtube.com that showed different ways of "fixing" it. Just so you know, I have absolutely no ways of testing them out and have no way of determining if they will damage your Xbox further. However, if you don't have a warranty and Microsoft won't fix it, it's kinda useless anyway(my buddy used his as a target on the shooting range). The first one shows a way that shouldn't permanently damage the xbox:

But I don't know if you'll get it to work.

And the second one will definitely work, but will kill your xbox after doing it more than a few times. My friend used this trick, and kept his 360 on 24/7 until it quit on him.

These seem like the best of the "fixes" I saw. Hope one of them works for you.

Every night- at the same time- while watching Netflix on my Wii- through a WiFi connection- Netflix streaming will freeze, retrieve then fail. I can sometimes select Try Again and it will work for a short...


Hmm... I am not sure, but this can be because of your internet provider. Some IP's "reboot"their internet hosting servers to wipe all the non useful info that got collected over the day. I really dont know why you wouldn't be able to continue watching after the internet was back again.

Abc player isn't connecting anymore (lost - season 3)


If it is on your PC then it's probably ABC's server. Try sending them an e-mail and asking if they are experiencing any problems on their end.

Cant watch movies or tv shows from the internet.


This isn't possible with the PS3's browser.

The ONLY way you can watch the Netflix movies is by downloading their special software and using Internet Explorer.

As far as ABC and flash goes the PS3 should be able to play "most" flash embedded videos as long as you have the latest firmware update (2.60)

Because the way the PS3 is designed you're not able to modify the browser in any way so you can't add any of the special software these websites use to distribute their content.

Your only "solution" would be to setup a linux partition on the PS3 but unless this is your cup of tea I'd stray way from things like this.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate my solution.

Thanks!

Can't launch new abc full episodes player - was ok till recently


The problem isn't with any of your hardware or software. Both ABC and FOX use a plugin developed by a company called Move Networks. You can go directly to their site and test the plugin, you can also test by going to Fox and viewing their videos. This tells you the problem isn't on your end, ABC has broken something on their site. This affects both macs and pcs, each of the browsers, again because it isn't related to us, it's their end that is broken. Hopefully this will save you from wasting time trying to fix what isn't broken on your side.

Hopefully this will save you all from wasting time trying to fix what isn't broken on your side.
