This question was asked in Microsoft.public.windowsxp.general.
I joined in the question but there have not been any real
responses as yet. I hope that this NG can provide the answers.
I have IE 7 running under XP Professional with SP2 and all
updates but NOT SP3. When I try to view videos, I get the
latest flash player.
I went to Adobe's site to install flash, I ran the installer and
got no indication that anything went wrong with the installation.
However, I still can't view the videos.
I have the following settings in IE7 for Internet, Trusted sites
and Restricted sites:-
<disable> Display video and animation on a webpage that does not
use external media player
<enable> Scripting of Java applets
these are the default settings.
Do I need to enable the "Display video and animation on a webpage
that does not use external media player" to be able to watch the
Does anyone have a suggestion as to what is blocking viewing the
videos if it is not this setting?
Cheers . . . JC
