Question

Vidio stopping

When playing a video clip online, The video will stop and I will get a white panel with a exclamation mark in a circle.
Sometimes I can right click that and refresh and can get the video to play, but mostly I can do nothing with it.
It happens with both IE10 and the latest Firefox.
I am using the Comcast version of Norton suite anti virus if that makes any difference.
Any advise would be appreciated
Thanks

I think Flash crashed.

Try a common settings change and if it still crashes, talk to your PC's maker about repairs.

And no, many folk are not running new PCs from May 2014 so I continue to disable this.

Will remove then re-install flash and check hardware acceleration.

Thanks again Bob.
I removed and re-installed Adobe Flash player with the latest version. Disabled hardware acceleration and installed the latest graphics card drivers and all is well again.
