I am working with some CD-ROMs for a college course. It contains FLV files that are meant to play with Adobe Flash player when the different module tabs are clicked. The strange thing that is happening is that it will play on some of the office computers but not all. This may pose a problem for the students who will recieve the disks. Just today I was able to successfully play the disk on 3 XP computers, 1 vista, however, there are three or 4 other PC's that have XP that it would not play on, and a PC that had Windows 7 that wouldn't play either.

The adobe flash player window comes up but just stays black. No error message.

Is there a plug in, codec, or setting that needs adjustment?

These need to be able to play on all PC's without installing any other players. Adobe Flash Player should be enough.

Thanks in advance.

Check the edition of the Adobe Flash Player. Some of the earlier editions did not originally include the codecs necessary for all SWF and FLV files. These were released on updates.
It is easier to simply go to Adobe and download the latest 10.1 (I think) edition.

Ok, will check. What about my Laptop with Windows 7? I have updated the flash player to the most recent and am still getting nothing.

Thanks in advance.
