You seem to have tried all the usual remedies. What exactly do you see instead of the expected Flash content?
A little confusion here:
... that Active Filtering is enabled and that ActiveX Filtering is disabled in Internet Explorer.
but I assume that you meant ActiveX Filtering is disabled. Just to make sure...
Thank your for your reply. I am refering to 2 different things. When clicking, in internet explorer (1) tools, internet options, security, under both internet and trusted sites, custom level, under scripting, active scripting, the dot "enabled" is checked. (2) under tools, safety, activeX filtering is disabled. When I click on a video that requires Flash Player I get the following:
on www.cnn.com front page - a blank video
on other CNN videos - "This CNN feature is optimized for Adobe Flash Player version 10.1 or higher"
on www.cbsnews.com - i just get a blank/white square with a small square in the upper left hand corner that has a black box with a white "x" in it.
on www.youtube.com - I get a message "! You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video. Download from Adobe" but then after a second, the video works.
When I go to control panel, click on flash player, advanced, it says that the "Plug In Version" is not installed. Not sure if that makes a difference.
I also checked my control panel, programs and features, and Adobe Flash Player 11 Active X is the only version of Flash Player I have installed.
Thank you so much!
The "blank video" could indicate a graphics/display driver issue. The driver version you mention sounds like a slightly old Intel driver; can you try to update your driver directly from the graphics card manufacturer's site; see http://forums.adobe.com/thread/945765
