    Connection?
    Why would I use a connection for re-installing?
    It's a long process because I have a lot of very large programmes to re-install.

    Ah I see you haven't bothered to read the thread AT ALL.
    By re-install I meant wipe the hard drive and re-install everything.
    Because I've already re-installed Java AND Flash AND whatever else was suggested at least four times.

    I think that the problem may be installing the wrong flash version.

    What you can try is uninstalling flash. Then search for remnants on your system with keywords - flash or whatever would be associated with flash. once you check the file system go to regedit and ctrl-f until all references are deleted.

    If you get everything off install flash right through youtube.

    That assessment is based on...?

    Post #1
    I.e. the flash player I install IS the one through YouTube.

    Perhaps some program installed an obsolete or incompatible flash version prior to you going through the routine of installing the browser plugin AND FF is using the wrong file when it needs to access flash.

    Which is why i said to do a deep vacuum of flash files.

    Try this:

    Dywyddr, while you are here let me ask you a question.

    What does Java have to do with Flash?

    Flash uses JavaScript functions AFAIK.
    Firefox says JavaScript must be enabled to play flash videos.

    Money.
    I'm not paying £200+ (which is the lowest I've seen so far I think) just to play five minute videos.

    (In fact at one point I gave serious consideration to going back to ME).

    Haven't seen an upgrade disk, and I refuse to do automatic upgrade downloads after very bad experiences with them, as said above somewhere.

    I had a problem playing youtube videos when they very first came out and I'm pretty sure going to SP3 solved the problem. I may be wrong, it was a long time ago. Maybe you could order it on CD?

    Download the sp3 from the MS site do not run it from there download it to your pc run it and you will likely find that it will run better if you have already done so they the file you got was likely corrupted in the download seen this happen many many times. What you would need to do then is get a friend to download it or download it from work IF you can that is and burn it to cd and run it from the cd. I have seen many times that the Windoes updates on a slowish download when run from the location can and do suffer from corruption causing the system to become unstable.
    Go to this link and download the file it is the standalone copy of the sp3 install.

    Hope it helps.

    Oh and BTW with a 56K modem it will take 12.5 hours so if you are using that I suggest downloading it some where else.

    Would that make YouTube work?
    Still maintaining your usual "high" standard of posting I see.
