I keep getting the message "You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video.
Download it from Adobe. " I have version 11 on this computer. I've uninstalled and reinstalled till I'm dizzy and still get the same message.

This just started. I've never had that problem before.


I have win7, ie8, etc.

What particular site could this be? Have you checked this on another browser such as Chrome, Firefox or Opera?

I gave up on ie8 so when I want to watch videos, I go to Chrome. What a shame.

The latest version of IE for Vista, Win 7 is IE9. So any upgrade should be better at this point. Check on the difference.

Be very careful that you only download Adobe updates from Adobes site. Their are false Adobe downloads that will drop about 3 Trojans on you. Been there and done that.

What he said . I get those sometimes and ignore them. Adobe has a version test and update on their home page that way you know if you are up to date and that you get the real deal here
first I would upgrade to IE9 it has pluggin support for HTML video as do chrome via Flash and Firefox. as well as hardware acceleration then finish your upgrade by downloading and installing Chrome it also has HDWE acceleration and HTML support
