Installed latest version but can't get it to work with you tube videos

Jan 1, 2011 4:37 PM

I installed the latest version of Flashpayer for Windows XP but when I go to Youtube and try to play videos Youtube doesn't recognize that it is installed

What am I doing wrong or how do I fix the problem? Thank you.

    What is your browser & version?

     

    How does Youtube not recognize Flash Player?

     

    Can you see the Flash animation at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ ?

    When I access a video it says I don't have version 10 etc.

    You need to give me the exact message you are getting.

     

    Also check Internet Explorer | Tools | Add-ons if Shockwave Flash Object is enabled.

    I'm having the same problem, when I try to see a youtube video, it says "you need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video". When I click on "download it now", Adobe says I already have it installed.

     

    I too have Windows XP and using Windows Internet Explorer 8 browser.

    Go to add-remove programs in the control panel and verify that the latest version of adobe flash player is installed.  IF not try removing any adobe flash player version in the add remove applet in the control panel and re downloading  / reinstalling the flash player.

    OK Dallas, I did that and it didn't make any difference.

    Just to be sure it is uninstalled try the flash uninstallers at this link  Clear your browsers cache and reboot as well after uninstalling..  http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/
