    I saw a few posts on this subject somewhere in here and having experienced the same problem solved it by downloading Adobe Flash Player. (y) (y)

    Sites such as UTube and Live Leak both (to me) want Flash. :D :D

    Prior to this I was just getting empty explorer pages or "cannot load this page" sort of stuff! :eek: :(

    I'm dun!! :D :D

    Hi Cuttlefish, I'll bet you can answer this one - I've never been able to watch a video
    or U-Tube, what happens is the video runs for maybe 10 seconds or less, then vanishes for a short period, then returns. Highly irritating... I have downloaded Adobe Flash so it's not missing that.
    TIA for any help,

    Pause the video for a minute, giving it time to download, then try playing it.
