I installed Quicktime and Audacity

 

then the next day, youtube freezes after finishing a song. 

 

The quicktime installation is the only event that changed youtube behavior. 

 

I had trouble with itunes before and uninstalled it. 

 

Is Quicktime interfering with youtube music videos?

 

Any suggestions on this appreciated.

Hi Achaemenid :)

I doubt that QuickTime is interfering with Youtube since they don't use it for their video. Can you tell me which web browser you are using? And on top on that, can you tell me if you use the HTML5 player or the Flash player when you watch videos?

I normally use Chrome, but for downloads I use Slimbrowser because it has a download manager. This is not relevant in this case. 

 

I don't know how to answer the question on Flash vs HTML because all I know is that I have been able to run youtube ok,  But the youtube screen never completely froze.  But after the Quicktime install it did. 

 

The only time I have had a choice between flash or html is if the video content provider gives me a choice.  I just run youtube as it comes. I have never worked with Quicktime. 

 

I just removed Quicktime and youtube seems back to normal. 

 

This may affect how the mini-tool scan comes out.  Should I reinstall Quicktime and try youtube again and then do a scan?

You can run the MiniToolBox scan without QuickTime. Also, what if you reinstall Google Chrome, but disable the QuickTime plugin in it? To see if you're using the HTML or Flash player on Youtube, right-click on a video and you'll see line About .... The ... will be replaced by the name of the player you are using.

I have right clicked on youtube and HTML5 is what it says. 

 

I uninstalled QuickTime from Programs and Features. 

 

There is no QuickTime plugin in my chrome browser now.

Uninstall the following programs please since they are outdated and vulnerable:
  • Adobe AIR;
  • Adobe Flash Player 15 Plugin;
  • Adobe Flash Player 15 ActiveX;
  • Java 8 Update 25 (64-bits);
  • Java 8 Update 25;
Also, if you are to reinstall QuickTime, make sure to disable it's plug-in in Google Chrome. But to be honest, I don't see the point of using QuickTime since barely anyone uses it on Windows, only on Mac OS X.

I have to use QuickTime because one site I belong to requires it to see some instructional videos.  I also have to enable the plugin-in in Chrome for the videos to play.  I am researching whether I can just instal it when I need to watch these videos, then uninstall it. 

 

I thought I needed the Adobe for some functions like some videos, and the Java for other functions. Would it be enough to update these programs?

You can "update" these programs, yes, but I suggest you to uninstall them and then download their latest version in order to do a clean install. Be sure to opt out the promotional offers that these program installers will bundle when you install them. Adobe usually adds McAfee Security Scan Plus and Java adds the Ask Toolbar.

I am having trouble locating a new version of Adobe Flash Player 15 (or later) ActiveX. 

CNET central does not seem to feature it. 

I cannot find it on the Adobe site. 

If I cannot find it, I must leave my current version. I don't quite know the difference between the flashplayer and the plugin.

The Adobe Flash Player ActiveX plugin will be installed automatically if you ever encounter a webpage that requires it. If you don't use Internet Explorer, you won't need it.

Does the same apply for the plugin?

For the plugin you have to install it separately. To be honest, you don't need to install Adobe Flash Player at all if you use a web browser that have it integrated, such as Google Chrome. I think that even Mozilla Firefox have their own integrated Flash Player now, or is it Opera. I know for sure that Google Chrome have it however.

So you are saying I can just uninstall both flashplayer and the plugin from Programs and Features, and there will be no problems?
