Windows 7: Browser videos not playing

Browser videos not playing


I cannot watch videos in the browser (Chrome or Firefox). Youtube is fine, absolutely no problem at all. But some sites the video just does not load. For instance, if I go to Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee by Jerry Seinfeld I cannot play any video. Nothing happens!

Any suggestion?

Most likely that's caused by a missing or disable Flash player plugin. It's the standard for playing videos and many other multimedia web applications. You can download from here:

Almost every site with videos uses Flash to show them. YouTube is different because it also has an HTML5 player. Make sure that Flash is not disabled in the browsers or being blocked by something else.

Well you don't need crackle
They do work on Chrome and ie11 in win-10
I don't have either in win-7 so I can test if they work or not there,
I can say without flash player they will not work Pale moon and ie10 I do not have flash install so they don't work.

NO videos will play, regardless of browser
No vimeo, youtube, absolutely zero videos from any source will not play. I used to be able to coax Firefox into playing videos for me, but now it's rebelled, too. Can't even left-click to open the video up in another window. Should I uninstall IE 11? Or is it an update issue?
