Youtube won’t work.
I get the following message:
I have checked to make sure my Java is turned on (it is) and clicked on the link provided to download the Flash player (which may or may not have been how my comp ended up detected a virus that day). I still get the stinking message. Can someone help?

I have turned my comp on and off half a dozen times since this message first showed up. I even left it off overnight. No change.
Strange, i’ve been on it for the last 30min watching music videos, im using IE.
I ended up having to go into Tools, Options, Privacy and then clearing the data (cookies and cache, etc.) to get my Youtube to work again properly.
I’ve had nothing but problems since updating to the new Adobe Flash Player, and my research on the internet indicates that I’m not the only one. Programs that require it on my computer can’t run it and I haven’t figure out how to fix them. However Adobe denies that there are any glitches in the program and will not issue a solution, so all you can do is look for information in places like this post.
I’m having the exact same problem, and I’ve been doing everything you did: “I have checked to make sure my Java is turned on (it is) and clicked on the link provided to download the Flash player (which may or may not have been how my comp ended up detected a virus that day). I still get the stinking message…” I also did what you suggested in the last post, ” I ended up having to go into Tools, Options, Privacy and then clearing the data (cookies and cache, etc.) to get my Youtube to work again properly.” But, still nothing. I can’t even play video clips on facebook anymore… any help?
Mine wasn’t working so i tried on Mozilla and it still didn’t work so i went to Youtube on Mozilla and up the top underneath the address bar was a bar thing which said install something or other. i clicked on where it said install and went to the manual install and installed the adobe flash player. a link came up on my desktop and i clicked that and it installed the flash player and now it works:D hope this helps…sorry if it doesn’t
If you delete your cache in internet options on explorer then refresh the page it works. No idea why, must be flash.
Thanks, this helped alot! Clearing Cache worked for me
hey, for all those who it doesn’t work for I just made mine work today.
1. First of all clear your cache but this may not solve the problem. Then enable all activeX controls by going to tools, internet options, security, custom level. It will say your computer is unsafe but you can change it back after you have installed adobe.
2. Go to youtube page and go to help recources.
3. After doing this go to the general help center and click on “the video won’t play” link. Follow the instructions.
4. It will tell you to download an uninstaller then re install adobe but you must restart your computer and when you redownload adobe make sure your other windows are all closed.
5. This may not work the first time but give it a couple of goes and hopefully you should get the result I did :)
thanx, i cleared temp folder and it worked!!!
try this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its work !!!
Sorry how do you clear the cache?
youtube won’t work it goes to the first page but if i click some thing it brings up an error page then a freeze page what should i do

Couldnt watch videos on you tube on google chrome or mozilla
Works okay with internet explorer (blue e symbol on desktop)
add “youtube.com” to allowable cookie list.
Click tools, options, privacy, exceptions.
on address of web site enter “youtube.com”

Not necessarily, a lot of ocmputers have been effected with a Virus, that wont’ allow you to watch you tube even, tries to con people in buying a codec software. FORMAT~!
