update on this. When I downloaded the flash player it said it was sucessfully installed but does not show as a program in my computer
I will suggest yo uninstall the flash player from control pannel if you are on windows or from utilities if you are on mac.
after uninstalling the flash player download the offline Flash player installer accrding to your require then try watch the video's.

What is your operating system & version?
What is your web browser?
Windows 7 home premium and internet explorer. I did have the flash player,
it came with the adobe reader, but for some reason it stopped working. I
tried checking for updates, that didn't work either.
