Windows Live Mail problem

by Jansetau / August 23, 2012 11:59 AM PDT

Hi All.
I hope I am posting in the right place. My question.
When I receive an YouTube link in my Windows Live Mail and I click on it to play, I get a black screen where the picture should be, but I still get sound.

Further more whenever I send or forward any emails containing pictures I get a warning saying that some problem had occurred with Windows Live Mail and some of the picture may not be sent.

I think that both these problems may be linked but do not know why this is happening. This has been happening for quite a while now.

My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate

All help appreciated.

What happens if you copy/paste the link to the address bar of your browser yourself? What browser, by the way? Why not try all three (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome)?

Hi there.
I use Firefox browser. I have discovered a work around. I simply send the delinquent YouTube email to either my gmail or yahoo email address and they works o.k. from there. It would appear that Firefox may be the culprit.
