Is this a Windows, Youtube, or Flash issue?

    When I play a Youtube vid, a red banner at the top of the window says I need to install Flash. Then the video plays anyways....

    I have the latest Adobe Flash installed. I have active scripting enabled. I have Java. Anyone have an idea? youtube nonsense.

    Uninstall Flash and Java, I would recommend Revo Uninstaller, get rid of registry markings too. Preferably reboot.

    Then reinstall from Adobe page - not a file from your computer, and from Java page, install the latest ones.

    Most likely this should do it. ActiveX is known to cause many problems, a lot of people hate it. It can be disabled, worth a try if problems persist.

    Hmm. I did exactly as you said and suggested, minus the disabling ActiveX, and the behavior is the same.

    Try disabling ActiveX. You can get it back anytime. No harm will be done.
