How can I solve an issue on internet explorer?

by xp_rooky / October 20, 2011 7:20 AM PDT

Hi everyone,
I have XP Pro. and the explorer we use is Internet Explorer 7, the default page that we have is our school website and when I open a different page that has videos on the page, we can only see images of our webpage and not the video that we want to play. Can anyone please help me to solve this issue?

So your home page (that's how it's called in IE, not default page) is your schools website, so that appears if you open IE. Then you copy paste http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZTQy04EyL4 into the address bar to view our Molly Wood (don't you love her) discussing the iPhone 4s, and then what happens?

If you don't see the Molly video, but something else, it's either the video driver or a flash setting (such as hardware accelleration) that is suspected. Does this happen on all XP machines with IE7 or only on some? What happens if you try Firefox or Chrome or IE8?

Hi and thanks for replying,
This is the internet website where we have all the issues with IE7:
When we open that site you can only see some videos, but others display the main page of our website which we use as homepage on IE7 on each computer. We have this issue on all computers. We cannot move to another browser because we use applications that works only on IE7.

Well, you can have multiple browsers on a PC, so why not download Chrome or Firefox. Both work in XP and both are free. If those work correctly on that site, you can use those for that site and IE for the applications that use IE7. You could even use Firefox and the IETAB-extension to run them for Firefox, probably.

If those applications only run on IE7, and not on higher versions of IE, be sure to update them asap. After all, new PC's don't come with IE7 any more and IE7 can't be installed on them. So if you don't update your school must use old PC's as long as they last and stop functioning if those old PC's break down. You wouldn't like that.

I think, I'm going to have to do that because they are always using this website to check the news and they always complain about it.
Thanks for your help!

That's a question for the school's IT guy. Just ask. Either he'll solve it, or he'll say that's the schools policy and if you want to view video you buy an iPad. Except that iPads are forbidden at school.

I'm the IT guy and I've been looking all over the computer to find the issue with no luck, it works fine on Windows 7 using Explorer 9.
