    Can't play Videos

    Since I don't have cable, I watch for episodes of my favorite shows I miss.

    Until a few days ago, everything was fine. Now I cannot get ANY video's on to play on my computer. I've tried Explorer and Chrome. This isn't a problem for anyone else I know...

    Will someone please help me?

    I don't have an issue playing you-tube videos..

    Hi, welcome here.

    Go to > this page, change your settings if anything is blocked. > "Allow 3rd Party Flash"
    Be careful with allowing camera for sites etc, its really only the "Allow 3rd Party Flash" you need to check.

    Please note: This is not an image you will see, the check boxes on this page at adobe, literally change your PC Flash settings.

    After that, if it wasn't already checked, empty your cookies and cache, restart Firefox/IE/Chrome or whatever browser you use and try again.
