    Ok, so it seems like all movies/clips/vids ect. on my PC don't play properly and all have the same problem.

    Whether its youtube, or a free clip on the web this always happens. It doesn't have any sound and it plays for about 2-3 seconds and then stops completely kind of like its frozen for a second, but it never goes. The movies buffer and load find and i can use all the media controls find such as click on time in the movie, play/pause, ect. but whenever and whereever i start the vid it always plays for about 2-3 seconds and then freezes even tho the media controls indicates that it is still on play. like i said before the other weird thing i don't have sound.

    Internet connections is fine, i've wacthes many vids before and i've never had this problem. Sounds works find and can play downloaded audio files fine. I'm not quite sure what's up?

    Have you tried un-installing/re-installing your flash plugin ?

    Hi Sockerdudex

    Are you using IE7?

    Try downloading firefox (www.getfirefox.com) and install the flash player.

    Then go to the sites (youtube) and see if everything plays ok

    This will show you if its something IE/Flash plugin causing the issue or if it is something else on your system
