I've been using Firefox for over a year now I think, ages anyway, and ever since I've never really been able to view motion-media on it (i.e. videos on YouTube, adverts and banners, websites with a flash intro, etc). So if I go to YT for instance, I get a big blue 'Q' come up where the video should be. Now I know this Q stands for QuickTime, and I know that this problem should be solvable by downloading plugins, but I have done this and it doesn't seem to work. And yes I have QuickTime, iTunes, Macromedia Shockwave Player, Adobe Flash Player all on my computer but still no joy.
Sometime last year I was able to watch videos on it for a little period, I think I might have re-installed it (Firefox that is). However this stopped, possibly after I updated my QuickTime/iTunes to the next version (any suggestions as to whythis might have happened??). Since then I just haven't bothered trying to get it to work, but it still nags at me, because I know a few other Firefox users & they don't have this problem.
Now I should say, I can watch videos on IE, and that is one of the only reasons I still have it on my computer. It's kind of annoying, but I do switch to IE when Firefox won't let me view a website's content properly, and it works fine.
Any ideas? Is it just an uninstall, re-install job, or something a lil more complex?
Oh yea (sorry this turned out to be so long!), I'm using XP Pro SP2, system is pretty brilliant apart from this nagging issue. All ideas are appreciated. Thanks
