Is there any other option to take the place of Adobe Flash Player to facilitate the enjoy of music and video on youtube.com in Windows XP? What are the operational procedures involved?

There is no replacement for Flash. If there was, don't you think we would all be using it?

You can try this Firefox and Greasemonkey hack: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-watch-youtube-videos-including-hd-without-flash-in-firefox.html

Have not tried it so don't know if it will work with XP. But at first glance it's a script for Firefox so it should not be OS dependent.

There are no replacements for Flash player but you can download the movies on Youtube using firefox addon video download helper then try using universal players like VLC or media player classic because they are compatible with videos from Youtube. You can also use Youtube downloader...

Hi,

there are replacements for Flash player. Gnash, swfdec or lightspark to name a few. The issue is, that Adobe is developing the flash-standards and that these alternatives therefore will always be behind on the latest features flash has to offer. However if you just want to watch videos, these alternatives should work fine for you.
In addition, as previously mentioned, if you have a html5 compatible browser you may not need flash player to be able to play videos on youtube.

regards myrti

Because Netflix doesn't use Flash. It uses Silverlight, Microsoft's attempt to compete with Flash. Instead of tacking on to a year old thread, I suggest you start a new thread describing exactly what happens when you try to play Youtube videos.

I watch Netflix and I dont have Sliverlight installed. I think they use HTML5.

I heard that Netflix might ditch Silverlight but I haven't seen any news about it.
