Again I ask why can I not play video using Firefox?

Firefox will not allow me to play any kind of video. It just won't play since I did the last update. I'm not a good computer fixer upper. So I need simple, easy to follow instructions.

hello brpstcmo, you could try to [[Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems|reset firefox]]...

  • Why can I not play videos? Any free flash players?

    Why I can't play videos? Any free flash players for 3rd gen ipad?

    I have read that there are some, but I have not used any. Search the app store to see what might work.

  • Why can I not view videos using VLC or MPlayer X?

    So I have used VLC for years and never had a problem but I was watching an episode of a TV show i downloaded on VLC and suddenly the video stopped and I got a pop up saying the video was unable to be cleaned. I tried the whole uninstal reinstall....same result, tried restarting the computer....same result. I then downloaded MPlayer X and guess what....same result. It's not just that file either I tried a file completely unrelated and it played for 30 seconds on MPlayer X and then the program stopped responding. Any thoughts?

    Adobe, the make of flash, does not yet make a flash player for iphone.
    You cannot download any file or program to the iphone at the moment.

  • Why can i not play blu rays on my iMac?

    Why can i not play my blu rays on my imac?

    If you want to download VLC, try this direct site:
    The other site throws up a caution and I do trust WOT to keep my Mac safe (here is a screenshot of the warning I got):
    Here is an interesting article: .html
    It does mention VLC, but only if you copy it first which, according to the ToU of these forums, we are not allowed to discuss here as it circumvents copyright protection. In any case, you'd still need a BR player.

  • Why can I not play the rented movie...???

    Why can I not play the rented movie...???

    Welcome to the wonderful world of copy protection.
    iPads have a form of digital copy protection that will prevent protected media, such as DRM-infused iTunes movies, from playing back on devices that aren't compliant with the new priority protection measures.
    The Intel-developed technology is called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) and aims to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across a variety of display connectors, even if not in violation of fair use laws.
    The advantage of purchasing your movie as a DVD is that you can watch it on ANY device.
    For a better picture, and fewer hassles convert to analog. There are HDMI to Component video adapters available that will solve your problem.

  • HT2736 Why can I not GIFT apps using my current iTunes balance???

    Why can I not GIFT apps using my current iTunes balance???  It allows you to pay using credit card, paypal, or a new iTunes card, but why can we not gift apps and songs to each other using the current balance we have on our accounts from previous iTunes gift card purchases etc.?
    Either I am missing something very obvious here, or Apple's greedy stance on gifting is actually creating less usage of the feature, because I for one would not think twice about purchasing gifts for people with a current balance that is already accounted for, but when it comes to adding money or using a card, it just feels like a new payment, and a bigger monetary burden.
    Please let me know how to do this if it is possible, and if it is not, then PLEASE FIX ?

    I agree with some points that is how it works. Because apple do things they want....
    It's quite nice that way being so unique and remarkable. However it is so inconvenient for users who sometimes just want to gift things without a credit card or such whatever.  Because sometimes it's meaningless to have balance when you aren't able to spend it.
    The point is made. Many are not happy with it but that's life. Just take it or leave it...

  • Why can I not get the normal firefox start page instead of the "yourall-in-one page I currently have

  • You Tube not playing video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after latest update

    You Tube and other sites are not playing video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after latest update for both. Adobe Flash is working on other sites but not You tube and those sites that may have embedded You Tube videos, I'm not sure.
    Adobe Flash does not crash and no error message is showing. All that shows is a dark screen for the Flash video. Right clicking the screen shows only a non-clickable 'Movie not loaded' and the clickable link to the Adobe home page.
    I have spent an hour trying things as suggested for past problems similar to this but none have helped.
    I have sent sad face letting you know what I think of the latest update because of this which says pretty much the same thing as I have said here.
    I have no further info but if I had some input and queries form you I might be able to provide more.

    I'm not sure how to remove the version,. I don't understand why it is there, usually updates over wirte the old one as far as I know. I don't know where to find it.
    pref .js deleted.
    I could not find a user.js
    I disabled hardware acceleration on one of them, not sure which and I don't remember how I did it but think it must have been on the flash.
    No idea what protected mode is
    no new profile, I've never done this.
    Ok, did what you have said as much as I could. I have been fidgeting with things now for a couple hours. After doing a CCleaner and Registry cleanse, turning off and restarting the computer, the videos are now p-laying.
    I would still like to know how to find and get rid of the duplicate Flash plug in though if you would't mind.
    Thanks for the help.

  • Why can't I play videos on utube anymore?

    I have always been able to play videos on tube when reading news etc.For the last few weeks the screen is blank and the search button just goes around and around! Why can't I watch videos anymore?

    Hello Abbc2,
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!
    If you are using the Youtube app, I would suggest following the troubleshooting in this article:
    iOS: Troubleshooting applications purchased from the App Store
    If you are watching Youtube in the Safari app, then I would suggest these troubleshooting steps from our iPhone Troubleshooting Assistant found here: If you get to step 3, close all the apps that are running and try again. Here is step 1 to get you started:
    Restart iPhone
    To restart iPhone, first turn iPhone off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPhone will turn off after a few moments.
    Next, turn iPhone on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
    Is iPhone not responding? To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    If your device does not turn on or displays a red battery icon, try recharging next.

    Hello Pat,
    Went to the site you gave.
    I ran the auto detect since I use Internet Explorer.
    The results said that I have the latest driver verson for my system.
    This what I have:
    ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics
    Driver:  ATI Technologies Inc.
    Date:  05/08/08
    Version:  8.479.1.1000
    I do not know what values to select if I was to follow the steps 1 - 4.
    I also got an AMD auto dectect window that said:
    error   graphics hardware - 0x1002-0x9612  unknown
    I don't know if that's important or not.
    Thanks again for your time and help.
    I hope I'm not being a pain in the butt to you.

  • Why will Divx not play video with sound on Firefox but will play with sound on Chrome?

    Divx will play web based movies with both sound and audio on Chrome.
    Divx will only play video on Firefox.
    I have removed and reinstalled Divx on my computer.
    I have a desktop computer running Vista.
    I just became aware of this problem yesterday. In the past I have had no problem running these videos on Firefox with both sound and video.

    I was having this problem with videos at home yesterday as well.
    I also saw this conversation [] and it may be a codec issue? No one confirmed this yet.
    *But to make sure it is not Firefox, temporarily disable it and try another player. [[Fix common audio and video issues]]

  • Why can I not play music in car utilizing aux jack?

    I have a new IPhone 5 that will not play through the AUX jack on my 2010 Honda Accord.  Any ideas?

    Trouble shooting here so please don't take offense at what might seem to be basic questions.
    Can you hear through your earbuds when plugged into the phone jack on your iPhone?
    Is the sound turned on on the side of the phone?  If you can see orange on the sound switch it is turned off.
    Have you tried to restart your phone?  Press both Home and Sleep/Wake buttons at the same time and wait for Apple logo to appear? (LIke rebooting a PC)
    Can you check the jumper cable you are using in car with another device to make sure it works? (We had to buy a  male to male adapter with a smaller diameter tip to connect my wifes iPhone 4S to the Aux port in her car because the tip on the actual cable was too wide at the top. But that was because of the size of the opening in her case)

  • Why can I not play music through my headphones while the power cord is plugged in?

    When my headphones and power cord are plugged in at the same time, audio will not play through the headphones, and the volume bar goes away. Why?

    What is the other end of the power cord plugged in to? If it isn't an Apple wall adapter the phone probably sees it as an audio device.

  • When I try to play youtube video I get the message of blocked plug-in, and I can not play video using Safari. (Youtube works fine with google chrome) I tried installing flash player HTML5 etc... but still no difference.

    I just installed OSX Mountian Lion, and ever since then I can not play youtube video's. I get the message of 'Blocked Plug-in' in the youtube screen. I have tried installing Adobe Flash Player. HTML 5, also tried enabling/disabling java, but nothing worked out. Is there any way I can play youtbe vieos on Safar. (It works fine with Google Chrmoe, only safari has problem)

    If you have the ClickToFlash extension installed, that can prevent Flash based video from streaming. Safari > Preferences > Extensions
    It can also be installed as a plugin in /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins.
    Try uninstalling the currently installled Flash plugin (required for most YouTube content) then reinstall new >  Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS
    From your Safari menu bar top of your screen click Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab.
    Select:  Show Develop menu in menu bar
    Now from the menu bar click Develop > Empty Caches
