OK, I'm on Windows XP, using the Firefox browser &, until recently, was able to watch video's on sites such as "YouTube", etc. In other words, those video's imbedded on internet sites
To be clear, I have no problem watching video's I've downloaded myself on my various players such as "RealPlayer", etc.
My problem seems to be only with imbedded video's. Where once there was the "black box" with a triangle (play) button in the middle of the box, it's no longer there. And sometimes the video box doesn't show up at all. Nothing but a white space where the video usually is
I get no error messages. If you go on, say, "YouTube", you'll have the video in a box/square on the page. It will have either a triangle pointing to the right in the middle of the box/square, which is the play button, or it will have a play button below the box/square. You simply click on those buttons & the video will play
Also, at times you'll see an image of the video in the box/square
Now, when I go there, it's either a black box/square with no play button, no controls & no image, or it's simply a white area with no box/square
In other words the video is not showing up (hope I'm explaining this correctly)
I must have deleted something which isn't allowing the videos to be played. Maybe some "shockwave thingy" or something?
Thank you in advance for your help
