I am trying to open a video file for my online class. When I click on the file, only a gray box appears and reads "a plugin is needed to display this content". How do I get my computer to open the video. I am using Windows 10 and have zero knowledge of how to fix problems on it.

Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the active_x.

Flash Player Version: 21.0.0.242 Flash Player (Linux) Version 11.2.202.621
