    Adobe makes many products - I still don't understand what videos you are trying to watch that are running slow. Is your computer slow to load Adobe Shockwave files? Is it slow to run Real Player? I still don't understand which videos are running slow.

Yes, that is absolutely the problem. Flash videos, like the kind from YouTube, are reading information in what is supposed to be real time - dial-up is just way too slow to play those kinds of videos. The phone companies - Verizon, AT&T, etc - will not advertise this, but you can get DSL-only without having to install a landline telephone line for $19.99 to $29.99 per month depending on your carrier. Verizon calls it "Dry Loop DSL" - other carriers might call it something different - and you can only order it if you ask for it specifically - they will otherwise pretend not to know what you're talking about. Go to the comapnies' website and grab any coupon they might have directly off the internet, or they will not give you the best price (they have internet-only specials).

If you already have cable service, however, go with their internet service - it is worth every penny.

When I try to view a video online, Realplayer tries to install on my computer, but it's already the newest version. So I can't watch the video. What's up?

We'll to override this you could download adobe flash player which will then ask to go default player.adobe usually has the best updated codecs for online need at least 2gb memory to cope with hd playback and make sure all other running programs are shut down whilst online browsing videos.if you are watching stuff on computer a good all rounder which is also free is GOM player.plays just about everything without stutter or choppy playback.

I cant play my facebook games it keep popping up as my shockwave flash has stopped or page is not responing and the games keeps on freezing up and the web pages is loading slow what can i do to fix it

Thanks for posting your question with us at fixya! You will need to uninstall your Adobe Flash player , and go to Adobe Download for Flash Player to download a fresh copy. You will need to run the file you downloaded, to re-install it. When the setup is done, close your browser, and then re-open it and remove all cookies and browser history. Next, return to Facebook and login. Try to play the games again. I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and if it did, please rate my solution! Thanks!

Flash player not install

Please followthese steps to upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe's Flash Player: 1. Beforeinstalling Adobe Flash, you will need to first uninstall any older versions youcurrently have running on your computer. To do so, download Adobe'sofficial uninstaller here. Make sure to select your correct operatingsystem, and then "Uninstall Flash." 2. Now thatyou've uninstalled the older version of Flash, follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling the most recentversion. You can download Flash Player on this page: 3. Once you'vedownloaded the file, please exit your browser first, and then install theupgraded version of Flash to you're computer. 4. Finally,open your browser again and go to YouTube. You should now be able sosuccessfully watch videos! If theinstructions above don't resolve the issue, please also try the following: 1. Temporarilydisable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test. 2. as a trusted site in your Firewall software. 3. Ensureother applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Playeraren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the videoplayer. 4. Make sureyour computer is set up properly for Flash by checking out Adobe'sAdvanced Troubleshooter here. If I could be of further assistance, let me know.

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 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

Won't play

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.
