This needs to be turned into a Sticky or made into a tutorial. I'll bet this will help many people.

I agree with making this a sticky, maybe in the Tutorial section. I've had trouble viewing some sites with videos but not so many to be a nuisance. After changing the setting that Gerrit showed I've not found any video I couldn't view. Thank you for this thread and the help.

I have big plans for the tutorial section - it's just that I don't have a lot of time lately..

Thanks, Gerrit, this thread should help folks who are having problems viewing some vids. We know you're busy earning a living and that takes precedence. Ann

Still having a problem on one rig. the other one is working fine. The major difference in configuration is that the Dell Workstation 220, the one that works, is using the free version Avast, while the Dell Dimension 4400 is using ESET Nod32 Antivirus.
I have never had trouble with virus etc. since I started using Nod32 several years ago and I hesitate to turn it off even to test, but that seems to be indicated. I also have not f0llowed up on all the suggestions on this thread except those concerning flashplayer.
When I get caught up on my tax work I'll get back to it.

Wow- Everything works.
Don't think it has anything to do with it, since I had the identical problem with Firefox, Chrome, and IE, but I installed a later version of Firefox just before I found everything working OK. Sorry I didn't write down the version number but I think it was 3.6.16.
