    I have a new laptop (Lenovo T61 running Vista). On some websites, I am unable to watch videos. I AM able to watch DVDs on my laptop. I AM able to watch videos on Youtube/CNN/ESPN/Others. However, on some sites, I am unable to watch videos that I was able to watch on my previous laptop (Dell running XP). Please help. Thanks.

    What browser are you using?

    Any chance you can list the URLs for some of the web pages that are not playing videos?

    Do you get any kind of warning or error message on the problem pages?

    Problem solved. It was the security setting on IE that was causing problem.
