    to be more specific, the video on this laptop has never had a problem, but now the video WILL play, but the display is all off showing the video at massive magnification. so weird.

    Check the options on Media Player, not Flash.

    Have you tried to change the "quality setting" in your player. (little gear thingee) You might have it set at an odd resolution. You could also check the "about Adobe..." and see if your player needs an updating.

    hi, and thanks!! Yeah that was one of the first things I tried. It is very perplexing. I am a technophile but just can't noodle this one out. If you go to my Facebook page: Ian MacIvor (there can't be that many of 'me' out there, you will find the video I took of what I am experiencing. Thanks one and all for your assistance. -Ian

    P.S. I have posted same questions to the Adobe forum, a Microsoft Media forum, and am getting some traction on Facebook, but still no joy.

    THIS is really weird. When the laptop is on as power, the distortion/ magnification occurs. When on battery, it DOESN'T. ????????

    While this was a solution for a Mac that I was trying to troubleshoot with the same issue, I had to download realplayer in order to get youtube to work.

    Ok, I've farted around with AC settings. No joy. I reset to default- nada. Just sooo weird in my mind. I haven't used Realplayer in about 15 years- didn't know they were even around...

    Don't forget to do a restart........sometimes that is the only way some changes will take place. Also check your video driver for screen resolution(rightclick on desktop to access.
