Why won't youtube or any other flash video players work on my computer?

P: 1
My computer won't play YouTube or any other flash players and I don't think it is because of Java because when I deleted Java it worked just fine for days. When I was done watching videos with another player, I opened YouTube and tried watched some movies and it won't work. It will always load and load I tried waiting but it won't move a single bit. It has been two days and it still won't work.

Not just YouTube but also with other players won't work either.

you would need a working flash plugin for your browser. thatís pretty much all I think you require.

Go to
and install the Adobe Flash Player, and while you are there, install Shockwave player as well, then reboot your PC.
Your problem has nothing at all to do with Java, but I think it would be a very good idea if you reinstalled it, as most sites use Java.

hm, I must be on the other end of the web, since I haven’t visited such a site for a long time.
