I cant watch videos on youtube?

I cant watch videos on youtube. They always show me this: Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

I have already downloaded the flash player and enabled the active scripting in the internet options menu. I am still unable to watch videos. Can anybody help?

    I had the same problem. You can try the following:

    1. Download the flash player again to see if it works

    2. Restart your computer

    3. Go to http://www.opera.com/ and download the browser. Once you finish installing Opera, you should be able to watch Youtube videos because it automatically turns javascript on and installs the flash player. You will have to use Opera from now on. I find Opera very convenient than other browsers. You should have no problems after using Opera.

    Good luck!

    javascript is usually turned on by default...so, it might be your flash player is outdated..

    you can try a different browser...

    these will help you...

    1. Use Opera browser, it will load faster and smoother, and re-install latest flash (the correct way)

    get the latest flash player, and install it.. make sure all the browsers are NOT running during installation... this is the right way to install the flash player.

    by the way, the javascript is turned on by default.


    2. It could be due to slow connection or high traffic.

    Try watching it during off peak hours, the video will be smoother.

    Or you could watch it offline smoothly... try using 'zillatube' .

    It works well - Just google search "zillatube" to get it.

    Hmm, you can try refreshing the page or just try an alternative way to watch videos like Yahoo! Videos or something. Or maybe you can try installing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and see if it works or not. Hope that helped(:

    Try a different browser, you are probably using Internet Explorer and its really terrible. Use either Mozilla Firefox or Opera search em on google and download them. Or do a system restore to a time where you could watch videos this can be done by simple typing MSCONFIG in your run menu.
