Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
In general, if the video isn't playing right, you are missing software to play a certain file type, or missing a codec. Explaining this would take more space than Fixya allows, but i will give you some general hints.
Make sure you have the right software installed.
If the type of file it is trying to play is a Shockwave file, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Shockwave from Adobe.
If it is a Quicktime video, make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime installed.
FFA Encoder and FLV Decoder are two codecs needed for correct YouTube play in many cases.
I don't know how slow/fast your computer runs, and what it is capable of, but being an A/V guy, I have installed Windows Media Player, Real Aduio, WinAmp, Media Monkey, Adobe Shockwave, Microsoft Silverlight,RealPlayer, and various other music software and codecs - all without slowing down my computer.
