Getting youtube
 
If I try to get youtube I get the message about needing the latest flash
player, or java is turned off.

So I downloaded the latest flash player, but how would I turn java on
please?

And could it affect the rest of the computer?

I followed the instructions on Google and got as far as Active Scripting .
It says check enabled. That is already checked, so is Java turned on? Why
doesn't youtube work?

Thank you
Geopelia

I don't think you need to. Flash should be enough.

Yep, Java, *not* Javascript.

You can get the latest Java (MS aren't allowed to package it in Windows
anymore, so that's why you don't have it) from Sun...

http://www.java.com/en/download/

Should find youtube will work just fine now.

You don't need Java, but do need JavaScript turned on in your web
browser. I turned off JavaScript and tried a YouTube video page and got
this error:

"Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of
Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player."

Visit this page <http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/> to confirm
that you have Flash working correctly.
This page <http://www.iatn.net/help/javascript/> will test that
JavaScript is enabled and also has instructions for how to turn it on if
needed.

Thank you. I tried both those websites.

I have Adobe Flash Player 90.124.0 installed.

Javascript test PASSED! no need to read any further So it says.

So if I have both the things I need, why can't I get youtube? I get that
message Hello* message above.

I've found something about Shockwave player. Should I also install that? if
I do, could it affect anything else in the computer?

Thank you

I don't have the the Shockwave plug-in on my browser and YouTube works
fine. Both JavaScript and the Flash plug-in seem to be working on your
web browser, so at this point I'm already stumped, sorry :o)

I assume you've already tried rebooting? The only other thing I can
think of is that Internet Explorer's security settings are set
incorrectly. You can add a website to a restricted list in IE, which
will then disable potential security risks such as scripting whenever it
visits them. This doesn't seem like the sort of thing anyone would do
accidentally, but you can check it by going to Tools > Internet Options
> Security tab > Restricted Sites icon > Sites, and it will show any

sites that have been added to the restricted list. While you're on the
Security tab you could try clicking 'Reset all zones to default level',
which will change all the security settings back to standard.

I found the Restricted Sites, but I haven't got any restricted sites in it.
If I reset all zones to default level, is there any way to check what level
the zones are at, first? I don't want to affect anything
important accidentally.

Thank you

After a power cut I got the message "attention no video input". I wasn't
getting youtube before the power cut though.
Would the video input have come back when I started the computer again? How
do I check if there is a video input now please?
If there isn't, how do I turn it on again?

Thank you'

So the message would just be because of the power cut?
