I am at a complete loss, flash isn't working on any browser, Mozilla, Opera, IE, SeaMonkey or Chrome. I uninstalled it and then reinstalled, yet, nothing works.
Thoughts?? Thanks in advance for any help. Using Windows & Home Premium
As a first step, check out this installation troubleshooting guide:
Having the same issue since last update from Flashplayer (11.3.300.262).
Windows XP SP3
Browsers : Firefox 12.0, IE 8.0, Chrome 20.0
Doesnt work anymore on any browser.
I've been looking at the troubleshooting guide and other pages, nothing helps.
Took a look at other forums too, it seems that many people have this problem.
Example of symptom, often mentioned : videos on Youtube -> message "an error occurred please try again later" (but you'll wait very long, nothing changing)
one browser more or less ;-) I just installed Opera to make a test.
I get the same error message in Youtube
As said I have no Realplayer.
If you'd like any trace files or whatever let me know how I can make it.
When you go here, do you see the animated ball?
If not, please try the following:
1.) Uninstall using the uninstaller, as described here here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows. html
3.) Download and install Flash Player from here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
What antivirus/antimalware stuff do you have installed, if any?
guess what ?
Suddenly Youtube videos work again, and in all browsers.
It seems that Google / Youtube needed time to accept that Flashplayer wasnt guilty
Now there are buffering problems remaining, many people reported that, wait and see ...
Cool, it sounds like Flash Player is working correctly.
It's hard to know what the buffering issue is without doing a bunch of detailed diagnostics. You can try disabling hardware acceleration to see if it's Flash Player and/or your video drivers not playing nice. The Youtube diagnostic pages looks like they're not being maintained these days. Do you see video playback issues on other sites (vimeo, comedy central, etc)?
You can try ruling out hardware acceleration. That's about the only Flash-side thing I can think of that might help.
1.) Try disabling Hardware Acceleration in Flash Player. Details are in the Solve Video Problems section, here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html
