i cant see videos on you tube(18 posts)
If using IE7 go into tools-internet options
then look through the advanced tab, see if there's anything in there disabling stuff
also the privacy or the security tab may have something to do with it - it may be blocking the videos
If you don't have a security level preference, I suggest you click the button "Reset all zones to default level". If youtube.com is a favorite of yours, you could add it to your Trusted Sites zone. Here's a page with some great caps of the settings dialogue. You should not make a custom level unless you really know what you're doing.
Java is a cross platform language for software that can also be used in a browser plugin created by Sun Microsystems.
Though Microsoft still isn't too fond of either. Microsoft made their own versions of each that are not completely compatible with the standard version.
Starting with Windows XP SP1a though the Microsoft Java is no longer included and the official Sun version can only be used.
So, the solution is use Firefox? If IE7 won't do it, switch to Firefox. When Firefox won't do something, do we advise switching to Opera?
Look, I like and use Firefox. It's my preferred browser, but I see nothing wrong with IE7. It certainly can view videos in YouTube and all the other things that browsers need to do. I just don't like the sound of "if this perfectly reliable app doesn't work, use a different one". That's why we have Vista haters popping up every now and then. Did they really *try* to make Vista work before giving up?
Maybe the problem is that the Security zones in IE7 are too complicated for a casual user. Could that be it?
Reading back over my own post, it sounds kind of harsh. That's me venting my frustration, so you don't have to answer. I'm through ranting now. <sigh>
@ScottW: I agree, I use Firefox but I think IE7 is a fine browser too and switching to Firefox is not the solution.
In this case though I don't think anyone said Firefox was the solution. The idea was more to test if the videos worked in it to make sure it wasn't a general browser problem.
It just somehow morphed into a solution at the end.
This may be easy to solve, just please start a new thread of your own, this one is a year old.
Thanks for taking the time to search our forums though.
