I used to be able to watch youtube videos but not lately.  You keep asking me to install the latest Adobe Flash Player which I have done many times and turned off security and everything but to no avail.  Please advise. I have WINDOWS XP. Thanks.

Videos on YouTube are streamed through Adobe Flash player. If you're having trouble playing and viewing videos YouTube, we suggest you install the latest version of the Flash player: this will allow you to easily play YouTube videos.

Here's how to upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe's Flash Player:

  1. Before installing the most recent version of Adobe Flash player, you will need to first uninstall any older versions of the Flash player you've installed in the past and currently have running on your computer. 

    Please completely uninstall the version of Flash you're currently running, before upgrading to the most recent version. To uninstall Flash, follow Adobe's instructions, listed here. You'll need to download Adobe's official Uninstaller to remove Flash.
  2. Once you've uninstalled the older version of Flash, you'll be ready to upgrade to the most recent version of Flash. 
    To upgrade to the most recent version of the Flash player, please follow these steps:

    1. Follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling the most recent version of Flash.

    2. Once you've downloaded the latest version of Adobe Flash, please exit your browser.
    3. Finally, click to install the update that you just downloaded to your computer from the Adobe Flash site. 
      Once you've done so, open your browser again and go to YouTube. You should now be able so successfully watch videos!

If the instructions above don't resolve the issue, please also try the following:

  1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
  2. Allow YouTube.com as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
  3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.


For Windows Vista users: 
If the Flash uninstall / reinstall does not work this maybe due to a Microsoft Windows Vista permissions issue.

Please use the Windows button at the bottom left then the search function:

  • Go to: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\.
  • Right-click on the following file: FlashUtil9b.exe or FlashUtil9e.exe.
  • Select "Run as Administrator" and install the update..
  • Restart your computer.

I'm afraid I tried everything and still no video.  I have also installed the Google Chrome and still no video.  As experts in these matters can you please advise?  Thanks.

Prince is right with the info he provided.

Seems he's pretty well informed and anyone else on this forum would provide pretty much the same help.

So,please. Don't down vote his comment on the basis that he is not helpful. He pretty much seems to be the expert you are looking for.
