Right. Quick explanation.

Tried to watch Salad Fingers this morning. It is a flash-movie. Loaded okay, I hit play, there was no sound and it froze after two seconds, leaving me with Salad Fingers' pretty face grinning at me.

Tried to see the trailer for WALL-E before I went to see it, on YouTube. Froze after two seconds, no sound. Can "play" the video by moving the slider, but it comes out stocky and is extremely awkward, also no sound.

Tried to show my little brother he could make a robot on the WALL-E page in a game that uses Adobe Flash Player. There was no sound.

And so the only thing in common with these are, to me, that they all use Adobe Flash Player. I tried reinstalling, and it worked, momentarily.

Now what?

Using Firefox 3 on Vista.

I read last week on CNet (I think) that there are ongoing issues with Flash & Firefox 3.0 and there's no solution yet. One thing you might want to try is to mess around with your Firefox addons. The other solution is use a different browser.

Firefox 3, Vista, and Flash all working quite happily on my system. What version of Firefox are you using; what OS, etc. etc.

Vista Ultimate, Firefox 3, laptop.

The strange thing now is that Flash videos and Youtube alike works well. I'll just peep back here if it goes crazy again...
