Are you talking about a video in your browser, or standalone video.
If through browser, what browser?
Did you try different browser?

hi all,

after 3 days of trying various things (including tips from here) ive finally sorted it, it was to do with flash player,

after re-installing it several times and no change so l went on the adobe site and read about the player, apparently with mine being an older O.S. (xp)

the settings box held the answer, when you right click on the full screen icon the box comes up and you MUST have the excellerate box UNCHECKED !!!!

l new it was a simple thing that was causing it but just couldnt remember, anyway thanks to all who replied and tried to help,

joe
