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 :-)

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


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:

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.

Videos will not load. They will load about 1 to 2 inches on the bar and go no further sometimes a yellow line apears on the loading bar of a youtube video.

Assuming you are using Windows, I would refernce these items for the issue.....
Flash Player
Media Player

Try to update bflash player.
If that does not work, try using a different browser.
Check that the firewall settings are not blocking the media content.
Try updating Media Player....or maybe download VLC to see if they open and play there. If they work there you may need codecs for media player.

Hope this helps...

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,

Video does not open. gives me a update flash message. done iot many times

you might be using a 64 bit operating system and you're trying to play videos from websites like youtube or facebook which would require you having flash player installed in your computer. flash player is currently not compatible with 64 bit browsers. the solution: use internet explorer 32 bit. or download google chrome or firefox and try accessing and playing online videos from there.
