I've had this problem for awhile, and I'm fed up. JavaScript is enabled, I have the latest version of Windows Media Player and Quicktime, and yet sites like YouTube just don't work for me. Does anyone know what's wrong and what I can do to fix it? Thanks.

Hi Jrose , if you are having problems watching videos , it could be that .............. The youtube site, for example , streams it's video's through a flash player so you need to have this installed. To check if you have it go to your add / remove programs ( start > control panel > add/remove programs ) and look for an entry for either adobe flash player or macromedia flash player. The latest version is Adobe flash player 9 so if you don't have this installed , or you are using an an older version , try downloading version 9 from here and see if that helps.

It is possible you haven't got Real Player.Many videos on the internet need real player
