Hi mrmagic69

 

Please describe the problem in detail. If you are having trouble with playing YouTube videos, please try the below steps.

 

:step1: Uninstall Flash player plugin from Control Panel --> Programs.

 

   https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95346?hl=en

 

:step2: Install latest version of Google Chrome and observe how flash works in it. Chrome includes flash plugin by default so you don't need to install the plugin manually.

 

:step3: Make sure the system is free from malwares by scanning withe the below tools.

 

  1. Malwarebytes free -  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

 

     Run a full scan with it and remove any threats it founds.

 

  2. ESET Online scannerhttp://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=149856

 

:step4: Make sure the VGA driver is up to date. Also update DirectX.

Hi,

This is my first post so Hi.

I had the same problem with Flash, same errors. Tried all of the suggestions from forums. Still no fix!

A guy on the mozilla forum suggested this approach. With nothing to lose on my crippled machine, I tried his recs and it worked. Flash is now behaving.

It seems that Adobe introduced a new protection feature into Flash recently that misbehaves under some circumstances, creating problems that half the world seems to be suffering..

Here is how to disable it:

 

"You can disable Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 and above by adding the line ProtectedMode=0 to the Flash "mms.cfg" file located in:

   (Windows 32bit) C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash 
   (Windows 64bit) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash 

For example, on a Windows 7 64-bit system, open the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, copy the file "mms.cfg" to the desktop, open it in Notepad, add a new line ProtectedMode=0 and then close Notepad, saving your changes. Next, go back to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, rename the original file to "mms.cfgBAK" (to save it as a backup) and then drag and drop in the modified "mms.cfg" file from the desktop"

 

Hope it works for you!

Reply to Anshad Edavana, I'm running Vista and have recently switched to Firefox due to chrome's lack of support. Will I still be able to download chrome and view how flash works with Vista? I'm having the same flash player issues as ducky.
