Solved! Go to Solution.
On any webpage with Flash content, right-click on the Flash player, click "Settings", select the Display tab and uncheck “Enable hardware acceleration"
I don't have a problem with youtube but I do have the problem with http://new.music.yahoo.com
I don't think I had the problem before I updated to FF 3.6.10 and Flash 10.1.85.3
No sound or video but the site keeps pulling bandwidth in a never ending cycle!
Note. I've disable Hardware acceleration for Flash.
I cant watch youtube videos at youtube only, if youtube video is embedded on another web page (some websites, not all) I can watch vid just fine, disabled hardware acceleration and still no good,, I can watch videos just fine on youtube with Chrome, but I hate Chrome. Help, I really dont wanna hafta use Chrome!
Okay, after reading about probs with embedded youtube vids and deleting cookies I deleted cookies and is working fine now, thank god I dont have to use Chrome. thanx!
I tried turning off Hardware Acceleration, but i couldnt do it in the mozilla browser for obvious reasons (it requires flash). So I tried it in Internet Explorer and tried to watch a Youtube video, nothing... I tried deleting all my cookies, nothing... What do i do?! D=
Just started having this problem this morning. Running FF 5.0 Tried changing flash settings to "Dont use hardware acceleration". No help.
Went to FF help page, verified all add on's/plugins were at latest level. Still no go.
If I brought up a youtube video, the frame is there but nothing ever loads or starts. No start/pause buttone displat. Right clicking inside the video frame I get a small popup that shows the ver of flash that I have and also says video not loaded.
Oddly, when I go to youtube.com, there is a flash movie advertisements on the home page that starts playing fine (I right clicked on this to change the hardware acceleration settings).
Ended up clearing cookines/cache and that seems to have taken care of it.
