Hey, so I've recently formatted my computer and installed the latest version of flash on my computer after I installed Firefox. However I noticed a strange problem where flash videos on some websites don't play. Sites like Youtube seem to work fine, but sites like BlipTV and others don't play videos. Instead the loading circle for a video continues to spin for a very long time. Sometimes the video ends up playing if it's left loading for long enough, it seems like the video loads entirely first and then starts playing when all of it is finished loading.
I have tried multiple things to try and fix this including:
If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it! This is be driving me crazy for over a week now.
Edit: Also uninstalled and reinstalled all browsers, and disabling hardware acceleration. And I do not have real player installed so there's no interference with that.
No help from anyone at all?
Since this occurs with all browser, this leads me to believe you're running into a networking problem. What virus scanner/firewall software are you using? Can you try booting into Safe mode with Networking in Windows to see if you're still blocked?
Finally figured it out!
It was a firewall running in the background causing it. I didn't even realize it was there.
