Why I can't watch videos ?

  Antonio Machado 00:48 30 Nov 2010

Hello experts !

I have been able to watch all the videos from YouTube, from newspapers and websites from all around the world. But since a few days ago I can't do it, because whenever I click the link it appears a black color screen with a red color 'X' in the top left corner. What is it about ? what can I do to watch videos again ? I work with Internet Explorer 8 and Windows XP. Thanks in advance for your help. Best, Antonio.

Make sure your flash player is enabled in Add-Ons.
Make sure that you are using the latest update for it.
If not remove any old versions and install the latest version.

Hello Buteman:

I think you are right, the problem comes probably from the configuration of my Flash Player.

How can I enable the add-ons ?

How can I access to the Flash Player program to do it by the way ? I don't find it under "All programs".

Please continue helping me.

Best, Antonio.

Have you resolved your problem with opening Internet Explorer? As Lazarus The 2nd says above this is most likely the reason for your YouTube failure.
