    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.

How do i keep sloping in youtube


Do you mean the video takes ages to load and then plays a bit then stops - then plays a bit more than stops?

If you do the problem could be your flash player. You might need to update your Adobe flash player. It's free, just search for Adobe flash player online.
Once that is done if it still does it then you might not have sufficent memory on your computer or a memory problem. Another reason could be slow broadband. Faults on your phone line can cause problems that you might only notice when downloading video, which takes a lot of memory. Your broadband provider might have capped your download speed. Check out one of those broadband speed testers on the internet to see what you are getting.
The faster your proccessor on your computer the more quickly the videos will load. If your computer is doing several actions at once that will slow the speed down. So you can stop them by closing programs that are running.

Is probably aFlash Player error. 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: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ 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. AllowYouTube.com 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:Confirm you allow the websiteFlash content to play on your system
View the settings manager for your Flash Player installation. 1. Right-click(Windows) on any Flash content. 2. Select" Global Settings." 3. Select"Global Storage Settings panel."

For a customlevel, ensure that both Download Signed ActiveX Controls and Run ActiveXControls And Plug-ins are set to Prompt. For example, in Internet Explorer: 1. ChooseTools > Internet Options 2. Clickthe Security tab 3. ClickDefault Level, or click Custom Level

These days every programs have started explaining things by showing you a video clips which requires downloading through a software called adobe flash player. The process of downloading is quite time...


adobe flash player makes videos work on your screen.

downloading takes time because sometime there is not enough memory on the computer, so buffering is longer
.
sometimes the server you are downloading from is slow.

This machine is very slow and choppy when it comes to video editing & playback - any suggestions?


Without knowing the system/hardware configuration and softwares installed on your computer/emachine, it's not possible to assume which is the root of the problem. If you haven't upgraded the memory, i would suggest you to do it upto 2gb. Windows xp would run fine with adobe premiere and adobe photoshop, windows media player should not be having any problem if you are upto date with the codecs. Please also check the virtual memory and make it double the memory installed on your system. Uninstall unnecessary programs/applications, it's also important to run system registry cleaning everyday or every alternate day. I would suggest you to run a defragmentation every week so that there's no fragmented files. Run an full antivirus scan using an updated antivirus every possible days.
Good luck.

Slow Laptop Computer


Hi,

There could be a variety of reason(s) why the laptop is slow. If initially the unit was fast enough for your applications, it maybe that there are a number of programs running simultaneously and/or harmful to your PC. Pls try:
  • run/scan with your antivirus and/or an online virus scanner/remover;
  • Download AdAware by Lavasoft, install, scan and delete unwanted entries;
  • Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", goto Startup tab and uncheck all programs except those that you feel are necessary such as your antivirus;
  • In your System Properties Advanced tab, Performance Settings button, select "Adjust for best performance", and in the Advanced tab, change your Virtual Memory to double your onboard real memory.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
