    Can't play videos & my computer can't  handle latest Flash update -- Please Help

    Wingnut_1

      I have an older Sony Vaio Laptop with an Intel Pentium M 1.86 GHz processor, 1.49 GB RAM, XP Pro (sp3), and use Mozilla Firefox 21.0 & IE-8 (latest updates installed).

       

      When I tried to play Flash-based videos, I got an error message stating that I needed to update to the latest version of Flash Player.  So I did -- twice (uninstall, re-install, restart).  Now I still can't play  videos -- I can play YouTube vids, but not ones embedded into websites.  I get the same error message that I need to update to the latest Flash Player (which I already have) and I couldn't figure out what was wrong.  I just now noticed that the latest Flash update requires 2.33 GHz, which I obviously don't have, so it appears that my system cannot launch and utilize the Flash Player...??  What can I do?  It would be crazy if I can't play videos on my system -- it's not THAT antiquated (still supported by Microsoft), and many people still have these old laptops.  Thanks for any help you can provide.
