    Does any one know why all of a sudden (a month ago) I can’t get videos to play any more?

    Nothing at you tube will play, and a few other sites as well.

    I get the (You need to install flash player) message, and I do, yet nothing changes.

    Security settings? Security software? Firewall? These can block video's and images.

    If you keep getting the install Flash Player message, that's the reason right there. Your browser isn't registering Flash as a plugin.

    Not sure how to troubleshoot that but I'm sure you can google it.

    Somebody had the same problem with Zone Alarm Security Suite.It gave the install flash player message even when it was already installed.There are versions of Flash Player for the different browsers.The security software may be changing the settings.

    Yup each site needs to be customized in Zone Alarm to allow flash to run after a recent major upgrade. Check your browser settings and add the sites you want to view to it's/your safe list as well.

    Allow ads, Vb scripts, Java, Java script, embedded objects and Mime integrated object etc to run in your firewall software.
