Here's two things I'd try right away. First, see if disabling hardware acceleration makes a difference:
Assuming this is a recent problem with your system, let's try rolling back to a previous version of Flash Player to see if that makes a difference.
Good morning, Chris! Well, I uninstalled, and installed 11.7, and still no joy. ...and I still can no longer see http://www.youtube.com videos, even in html5 mode (so there was no way I could watch your video). Any other suggestions? BTW: When I went to the acceleration link, the area where my player info was supposed to be was grey. Right-clicking got me nowhere.
It says "Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.
Please go to step 2."
...and for some really, really weird stuff: I was just able to watch a video posted on facebook! ...and right-clicking showed that I had 11.7 installed. Bizarre.
Can you try an alternative browser (if you haven't already) to see how that behaves? I'd recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Hi, Chris! Really appreciate you hanging in there on this!
Okay, I wanted to add a few more things to the discussion:
- Yes, life was great prior to these recent upgrades, whether IE, or FP, or a combination. The problems have been in the last couple of weeks.
- I tried Compatibility Mode on a couple of the websites--msn.com and youtube.com. It made the situation worse on both because now I got an error message saying I needed the latest Flash.
I guess my question at this point is: Is FP12 expected to correct issues with IE11? If so, I can certainly wait. If not...I will try re-downgrading IE and clean-uninstalling FP, and re-installing FP11.7 and seeing if that works. I really don't want to use either Chrome or Firefox for several reasons (a story for over a beer).
I´m using windows 7 64 bit home premium, IE 11, lastest amd graphics driver and latest flashplayer activeX and plugin, (pepper version in chrome)
All flashversions worked badly on my favourite streamingsites such as justin tv and utube.
In search for help, I stumbled over the strobe playback player setup page, that enables you to disable the stagevideo section in flashplayer online (momentarily), wich immediately stopped all lagging and glitch problems.
Clearly Adobe needs to focus on that part (in particular for windows 7), since no problems running in vista and xp.
I would suggest an option in global settings that would allow windows 7 users to turn stagevideo off.
P.S. I hope this reply passes on to the developing team.
I am using Flash player 188.8.131.52 and am getting very similar results. This page, https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=335893426565493, gives me the white screen but brings up the settings menu when I right click in the white are and also allows the video to be seen dimly through the white screen.
I'm having the same type of problem as SuSham was describing with my HP Pavilion DV7 (product number A1L77AV#ABA). At some point (guessing with an IE or flash update), I lost my video capability (white screen) when attempting to view news clips (CNN, MSN) and the weather channel videos. Also, right clicking and picking settings brings up nothing (or it just can't be viewed). Very frustrating!!! I thought, perhaps, that my windows computer just needed a reimage (went over 3 years without doing so - quite a record...). I reimaged to the factory settings and updated everything through the HP provided factory provided utility software and windows updates. I'm using Win 7 Home Premium, have the latest service pack, installed the latest flash, etc. Problem not fixed... I think that disabling the hardware acceleration might have corrected the CNN video problem, but not the others. YouTube works fine. At one point, I had uninstalled Adobe Reader, trying to uninstall anything to see if it helped. I've since reinstalled it (is there any connection between Adobe Reader and Flash (something shared)? I went into the Device manager and verified that my drivers were up to date. According to that, I have the Radeon(TM) HD 7690M XT and Intel(R) HD Graphics Family display adapters. Finally, I installed Firefox, and all video works fine after installing flash for that! Wish I could get IE working properly.....
