    Re: Youtube videos not playing via Internet Explorer on Windows XP

    Hello friend,


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

    1.Firstly make sure that you are using the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

    2.If that is not your problem then you try to clear all cache and history and then try to use it.

    3.If still you have the problem then this can be the problem of the settings.

    4.So you open IE and then click on 'Tools' and then on 'Internet Options'.

    5.Then go to 'Advanced' tab and Reset All Settings.

    6.If still you have the problem then you update the IE.

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

    Hello Friend,

    Well, if you are unbale to play YouTube Video on your Windows XP based system then either your system does not have Adobe Flash Player or the existing Flash Player in your system is corrupted. If there is no flash Player in your PC then you have to install Flash Player from your PC by downloading the latest version of Adobe Flash Player from the internet : www.adobe.com. Alternatively, if your Flash Player is corrupted then you have to uninstall Flash Player and then re-install it to your PC.

    Bye,
