I'm running IE 8. My OS is Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.
So far I have used System Restore, to see if the updates that were installed last Tuesday were the culprit, that didn't work. Then I uninstalled Adobe Flash Player using by way of the control panel, then reinstalled it, no luck there. I used the uninstaller that Adobe provides (just in case I missed any files from the previous attempt) and then reinstalled it, another failure. I reinstalled Java, no help forthcoming from that direction.
I now tried Firefox instead of IE8. Its a lot faster for sure, but that didn't help.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

What is the problem and where is the problem occurring? It may be something else but it's not Java. "Can't see embedded videos on forums" isn't descriptive enough.

Sorry about that. Perhaps I should have phrased it better. What I meant was that I could view a video clip on You Tube with no problem, but if someone posted the same clip as a post on a forum it wouldn't load on my computer.
Anyways whatever was wrong seems to have disappeared. Somewhere between installing Firefox, Firefox prompting me to install the latest version of Shockwave (which I will swear on a stack of Bibles that I already had it) and now. Thank you for your response. I wish I could be more clearer but I'm not the sharpest knife in the draw.
