It's there - or is it?

YouTube and some other sites have started telling me that Adobe Flash Player is needed to view their content. But I already have Flash Player 12 (the latest version) installed! It was all working fine this morning!

Any thoughts on what's gone wrong?

What browser and any ad blockers you may be using?

Its probably the ad blocker stopping flash content from playing for security reasons.

There are known problems with IE11 and flash player. Assuming you are running this browser - try going to tools, and untick ActiveX filtering.

Do problem solving from Adobe web site this will check if you have flash installed alright and then proceed from there.

If you use IE as your main browser then the latest Flash update, via Windows update, has fixed it. Always the updates are slower than when actually available for some reason so a bit of an issue for Microsoft at the moment I think.

rdave13 - I do use IE - IE8 actually on XP(home) - so thanks for your helpful explanation!
