    Can't get the video as it's "xed" out. Anyone have an idea which area to check first? I think I blocked access to all videos when I uninstalled IE 7.0 version and tried to reinstall it back and MS won't let me. Whaaaaat? What in the world can I do now? I have installed version 8 already and it's conflicting with 7.0. I think 7.0 is the one that opens video avenues. I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    YouTube videos require a software package called "Adobe Flash Player". If you go to Google and search for it, you should be able to download it and install it for free.

    Another thing to check is this: Does a thin message at the top of your Internet Explorer window show up with the message "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options, click here...."? If it does, click this message and select either "Temporaily allow pop-ups" or "Always allow pop-ups from this site...". Only choose the second option, if the site is reputable.

    I hope this helps.

    Am on dial up and cannot get u-tube or videos, the server drops before the download is done. Is this something that someone could do a tutorial on? Would love to know what I'm missing :shock:

    Search and install this file:


    install_flash_player.exe


    If videos won't play after installing that then use this easy way for IE8

    Thanks so much, Amma! Think I already know what to do. I've been changing settings a lot lately and remember setting the pop-up blocker to "very high" hahhaha and typed in to allow only pop-ups from QB!!! I essentially blocked myself out from everything. oh dear. Now I need to go change some settings. Only been a week or two I haven't been able to see any you-tube videos. Will change some settings now! LOL. :wink:

    Gosh, Bellaboo, I appreciate this so much. Think that will work for sure! I kept putting off upgrading my flash player to 8. Guess if I do that, things sure will work better. Thanks so much. Will def try this too! :wink: :lol: :wink:

    Thanks so much, mytwopals! I had changed my settings for pop-up blockers all because of the nuisance of the pop-ups from Adobe Flash Player! They are driving me crazy to update my version of the player. Guess I'll have to go to their web site to opt out of this so they'll leave me alone. Even with a high setting to block everything, their doggone ads keep getting thru. Know what I mean? Guess I will have to go and update. The reason I didn't was because they ask me to disable all my avs protection agent and I don't want to do that. Is there a way around that? The whole reason I uninstalled IE 7.0 is because the program makes your pc more vulnerable to attacks.

    Well, guess I will go and upgrade my flash player so I can view some videos. Thanks so much for your help! I sure needed it. :lol: :lol:

    Once I see the video, I will try and do a tute for you. That might be easier for me to do than try and find a solution for your server problem! LOL. I will try anyway. :wink: :lol: :wink:

    Hey, gang, just wanted to let you know that I went ahead and downloaded FP 7 and am now able to get the videos. I remembered having problems trying to download version 8 of FP I think because of enabling javascript which I don't know how do. Have never found javascript under net options, but did find javasun. Know where I can find javascript under internet options to enable it?

    Some of the later versions of FP do make you more susceptible to viruses so wd like to stay away from some of them - only will do upgrade to 8.

    Thank you, I'm glad too I can now see some videos. I can imagine how it goes w/this technique as I've done some tube work b4 w/trip around the world patterns if you're familiar w/that. I'll walk you thru this as soon as I get time to view it; I'll just pm you to get you going. It's easy and fast they say so probably won't take much coaching. It's amazing no one figured this out b4 now as much sewing as we do. lol. :wink: :!: :wink:

    Just an update for you and anyone else who might need the info. I did download FP7 and thought I was in the clear when I checked @ one place to see a video. Because it was functionable, I thought it would be functionable for any video but when I went to the tube quilting video, it was "x" ed out. Finally, I tried bellaboo's suggestion and got lucky downloading the ToggleFlash that melameth came up with. He designed a pretty neat mechanism that works around AFP issues and makes it easier to view the videos. I quickly skimmed over the material but wd like to go back when I get time and read more about his design. "If there's a will, there's a way." PTL! Thanx again, bellaboo! Your help was invaluable as you can see! :wink: :lol: :wink:

    I did a little research for you and found a video accelerator program for people on dial-up who can now download their program and view TV or videos thru their program called SpeedBit. It's free and will increase your buffering speed while minimizing glitches. Just close any open running programs you don't need first. You can view one video at a time thru their system. Need only 56K dial-up to use it. Check it out. It might work for you. It's @ videoaccelerator.com. Let me know when you get time if it'll work for you. :lol: :lol: :roll: LOL

    Bellaboo, thank you soooooo much! You can't believe how long I've spent trying to search that one out! ha.ha. My son didn't know either even though he can write these programs!

    I will take care of that right away! I believe it's already enabled because when I downloaded FP10 tonight it went thru. I am now squared away for this problem. Couldn't have done it w/o your help! Forever grateful, you've saved me so much time and worry. Thank you, once again!!! :wink: :wink:
