Hello Brianwalkup i must say your problem is a minor one and that you must not worry for it will be fixed in a couple of seconds. now with this problem i need to know what web browser your using. I am using mozilla firefox and im asuming your using internet explorer but if your not il be able to help you right away. if your using mozilla firefox you need to install a reliable plugin, one that supports most video`s but remmember most doesnt mean all. so the first one i recommend is divx web player and can be found at and the second one is adobe flash player, now you can be familiar with this one but i recommend that you get it. it can be found at now those are the two players i trust they also act as plugins so you need not to worry. I also recommend that you get both of them so they can work at the same time. now your PC might not tell you this but you must restart it after installing both of them. Ive only tried them on mozilla firefox and not on internet explorer so its against my advice that you try them. but if you feel you need to go ahead. hope i helped bye! OH and if you need more assistance just write back to this post and i will help!

What is the best HD video downloader available?

I've tried a few. Most popular Flash Video Downloader (FVD) by Arthur Dubovoy seems to be most reliable and compatible. However I've seen a few more good featured and/or resource-economic (i.e. RAM-economic and quick working) ones in Mozilla/Chrome addon stores. Forgot names (they're all too similar) but easy to find and try popular's by 'video downloader' search.

Please note Google Chrome limits YouTube video downloads, so Google bastards prevent publishing any plugins able to successfully download videos from YouTube and some other services. FVD for Chrome is blocked inside against YouTube downloading.
Thus it's preferred to use Firefox (and Gecko relatives) and its plugins for YouTube video downloading.

No plug ine for google to see video

Which Plugin? Watch the screen when you play the video, it should tell you and give you an opportunity to download any plugin it needs.

Try another browser.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

How 2 play online vedio from u-tube plz tell me

You can play video from youtube, first u av to install adobe flash player or plugin. Then you must have a fast internet connection, that can stream the video fast. If your internet connection is slow, it will reduce the rate at which the video streams. i will also advice you to get a youtube downloader. instead of watching online, you can download to your pc and watch any time.

I don't know how to download videos and movies and when i download do i need to pay you.???????

You have free videos on YouTube, but you need program like DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox browser. It ad rotating icon with arrow. Just press on arrow and you can chose FLV (flash format) or MPG (MPEG format). VLC player can play FLV format. DownloadHelper can download files from YouTube and from some different flash video internet source.
You have Vimeo site where you can find some videos. You have free or not videos.
RapidShare is another source of videos.
Downloading videos from torents are not legal. Torents are users network (comp to comp connections). Without paying it is one of solutions. Most of this videos are in AVI (divx, xvid) format and need lot of time and flatrate connection to internet.

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 not getting any sound through my browser, but I can get sound from my zune player.

NO SOUND IN FIREFOX This article identifies several causes (and solutions) of No Sound in Firefox.
Before using the instructions in this article, make sure other applications on your computer can play sounds. If Firefox is the only application that you can't hear, continue to the troubleshooting steps below.
If you want Firefox to make a "click" sound effect when you click on a link, and to use other small sound effects like Internet Explorer does when you browse web pages, try the Navigational Sounds extension.

  1. Open Firefox and visit a site that should play sound.
  2. Click the volume icon in the Windows task bar.
  3. Click Mixer. The Volume Mixer window will appear.
  4. Make sure the Firefox slider is not at the bottom
If you're only having trouble hearing sound from pages that use Flash for video and audio (such as YouTube), you may be experiencing a problem with the Flash plugin. Follow the instructions in the Flash-based videos and sound do not play correctly article.

Websites made using FrontPage add background music to webpages using non-standard code.
  1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, open the Tools menu, and select Page Info. The Page Info window will open.
  2. If there is a line in the Page Info window saying "GENERATOR Microsoft FrontPage ...", contact the webpage author.

OTHER PLUGINS Most web page sounds are made through plugins. For these sounds to work, you need to have the correct plugin installed. If a plugin isn't installed, you'll normally see a puzzle piece icon and Firefox will show a yellow bar telling you that you need to install the plugin.
See the Popular plugin article for links on how to install various plugins, including QuickTime, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, and more.

Some plugins have their own volume controls. Check for a volume control directly on the plugin or in the right-clickCtrl+click menu.

I cant watch movie from youtube

If you can watch a video no matter how slow it plays then the issue aint with the plugins or the browser, The possible cause is the internet connection speed, if videos play for sometime and shows buffering then your internet connection speed is either slow or used up by other internet related applications that use the available bandwidth if you are running them simultaneously.
