    how fast, what is you Bandwidth of your internet connection....if you're trying to watch streaming video on a laptop you'll need to be on a LAN WiFi connection or ethernet connection. AirCards are not much faster than Dial up...and you won't be able to watch streaming videos with that either.

    When you get this message do u get an option to install it manually. If you do install it manually and this will just take you to the website and download it from there and then see if that helps. you may need to restart you browser just close it after you install the flash player program and then try playing the video after opening it again.

    I tried that but Unfortunately it still didn't work...my desktop PC plays online videos ok, but I don't know what it is with my laptop why it doesn't like to play non-windows media videos...
