    Re: Videos can't play via YouTube on Windows XP IE8

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly you should have to download the 'Flash Player' software in your computer.

    2.So you open your browser and go to the website 'http://download.cnet.com/Adobe-Flash...-10001055.html'.

    3.Then from that website download that software.

    4.After downloading install that software in your computer.

    5.I hope now the videos will play in your browser.

    6.If you have it before but it is difficult to play the videos then you update the present flash player software in your computer.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day...............

    It is coding name .
    If you facing this problem .
    That means you have a old version browser .
    who is not supported HTMl5.
    If you want to play video then you should use new version browser.
    It is easy.
    And I'm sure it will solve your problem.

    download the latest and compatible version of adobe flash player

    install it properly and restart your device

    and its done

    try to use fast internet browser such as

    Re: Videos can't play via YouTube on Windows XP IE8

    Other than The You Tube program problem, for which uninstalling the program and installing is required,
    A few common reasons create similar problems which blocks You Tube from running Video clips .

    1. Start the Browser,
    Click TOOLS,
    Click DELETE BROWSING HISTORY, remove all removable components and accumulations like, history,cookies,temporary downloaded files, active X component, etc. and finish.

    Exit and run You Tube,

    2. Click TOOLS,
    Click MANAGE ADD ONS,,
    Disable Plug-ins and Extension ,
    Exit and play You Tube to check the status.

    It should be fixed.
