Try creating another shortcut and add the flag just after the chrome.exe"

Okay, thanks for going thru those steps.

You might want to try the "Fixit" on this page:
Playing video files crashes or freezes Internet Explorer - Windows
I know that the problems listed are not what you are seeing but one of the things that this particular Fixit tool does is to check for corrupted codecs.

Test all of your browsers using the links below after running that Fixit.

What antivirus and firewall tool are you using?

In Chrome, please open a page in the incognito mode and try those public videos again.

Ahhh, still no luck Whatever google chrome is showing me is what IE is showing me too. Only firefox seems to work for my fb videos..


Edit: Now even firefox has given up on me. Stupid flash.

Two things to try:

PROBLEM SOLUTION:
1. Go to any youtube video.
2. When the audio starts playing and you don't see anything click the icon
that says "pop out" which should play the video in its own window.
3. Right click in the new window and select "settings."
4. Click on the tab with the computer screen and uncheck the "Enable Hardware acceleration." option.
5. That's it!

Or, try disabling googles built in flash only (2nd link)

Ok great. Even restoring my notebook back to factory conditions, the damn video(s) still doesnt work. I assume its a problem with flash no?

So, all browsers, and none will play flash videos? Do they play sound? Try viewing a video in Safe mode with networking

Still doesnt play. So i assume its a flash problem. Sigh

Edit: Swapped back to an earlier flash version and Mozilla is able to play it again. Chrome and IE still doesnt work.

By the way, could it be one of the programs lenovo pre installed conflicting with it? I've installed the same version of flash player as my desktop. Desktop's all browsers work. Laptop's IE and Chrome doesnt..
