unable to view videos on web

    Since about a week ago, I have been unable to view videos that are embedded
    in web pages. Instead of the video, there is just a white box that has a
    little box with colored shapes in the upper left hand corner. Thanks for your
    help!

    Can anyone guess what browser and version Varda has? Or what edition of
    Windows she has, with what service pack? Or even the URL of a page where
    she can't see the video, and which video on the page she can't see? Or
    what happened to her computer "about a week ago" that might have caused
    the problem?

    Me neither.

    As Leonard has already pointed out, your post is woefully lacking in enough
    information to do anything but speculate.

    You don't specify what Video type(.flv, .wmv, .mov, .ram, ...etc) you are
    trying to view in the Browser, and you didn't supply a link to such a video.

    Flash Player Video Test:
    http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    Windows Media Player Video Test:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/demos/video_quality_demos.aspx

    Quicktime Player Video Test:
    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/troubleshooting/

    RealPlayer Video Test:
    http://service.real.com/realplayer/test/

    Either tell us which of the above video tests is giving you a problem, or
    supply a link to a site that is giving you trouble.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell

    Assuming Internet Explorer, TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>ADVANCED, scroll down to
