You wouldn't by any chance be using Firefox? usually, that browser gives you an update window, if components are missing. sounds like it had a problem automatically installing.

if so, you need to re-install it from this page

Hope this helps :-)

Youtube shows blurry and so does web videos too


Video's on the web tend to use Adobe Flash Player. You should update the Flash player to the latest version. This might correct the problem. Go to the Adobe website the Flash Player update is free.

If you don't hear sound when playing a YouTube video, try these troubleshooting steps:
  1. Adjust the volume on your computer and speakers.
  2. Adjust the volume control located in the lower left corner of the YouTube video player.
  3. Restart your browser.
  4. Try turning up the volume for other video players (like Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player).
If you still have no sound after completing the steps above, these additional tips may help:

Video freezes


Hello,

Which video are you trying to view?

If it's in your internet browser like youtube then update flash player. Go to adobe.com and look for adobe flash player update.

If any video freezes, then you might have an outdated video driver or some other drivers in your computer. Updating the drivers can do the trick. To cover all drivers, install RadarSync. It will scan and update all outdated drivers.

When i try to watch a video on youtube where the video plays turns green and it causes flash player to turn off how do i fix this


Update of Flash player can help. If you use IExplorer, you can try with Mozilla Firefox browser, because flash plugin is little different in coding. If you can not see in real time video, you can download from YouTube to computer and than you can play (I suggest VLC player). You can download with installing DownloadHelper plugin in Firefox. It will add icon with rotating points with some arrow. You just click on arrow and you have list of videos for downloading. FLV is for flash, and MPG for MPEG video coding (the same video is in different quality). Sometimes your problem can be with directx. Try to update it too.

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,

None of the youtube videos will play


If you are using Internet explorer to view videos in youtube, your might dont have the latest adobe flash player. All you need to do is to update and install it.

You can also try other browser like Mozilla Firefox to view videos in youtube.

Problem with Youtube


Thanks Eeeeekz,

I tried many things other than turning Java Script on, I think it's the option to allow the on site video player to run. Then I restarted my computer and it works. As I told I'm not sure it's that because I tried many things. Maybe youtube needs the option.
