I'm currently running ver. 10.2.159.1 of Adobe Flash Player, and any update after that will not let me watch any kind of video on my IE8 browers. After I download the update, there is a video playing, but there is only and blank screen where the video should be but audio playing. If I scroll down the page, and back up, there are lines going across the video plane. I've tried everything from deleting %appdata%\flash [and \macromedia] files to completely resetting my IE8 settings. I've enabled scripting and everything said in any other help posts. Nothing.
I believe you posted that on a pervious post some time before this one, and I followed them both to key. Still nothing. I've unchecked the pop-up block, and temporarily disable my anti-virus to see if that was interferring with anything. Still no luck. It is however not actually playing any audio. On the site I'm trying to load [YouNow.com] I got the place where the video in centered to display "loading...", but it doesn't get any further than that. Youtube, surprisingly, is playing its videos after the update with no problems. Don't get me wrong...I'm not fussy about a lot of things, but this is killing me. I appreciate you assistance.

Just to clarify: Youtube plays videos all the time (after the update), or does it stop after some time (e.g. after a reboot)?
When I installed the update a while back, no videos would play right. there would be a black screen where the video was supposed to be, but fragments of the video would appear and disappear. I had to do a system restore to an earlier date to undo the update and just went without one until I could find a solution. The day that I started posting on here was the day that I accepted the update, and there aren't as many problems as noticed before.
To answer your question, I'm not having any trouble YouTube anymore, but some sites still have a "loading..." screen where the video is positioned on the webpage. I've reset my IE8 settings, followed those links that you posted, temporarily disable my anti-virus program, and completely uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash Player to see if there was any interferance from any of those. No luck so far.
