    Can you give us the url to the website you were on?

    Maybe then we can find out which plugin is missing.

    Regards Howard :)

    I need to know what video you were trying to watch as well. Sorry I should`ve ask you for this in my first post. I take it you`re using Firefox?

    Regards Howard :)

    First in the firefox popup blocker options allow the site.

    Then click on the red download plugin box on this page HERE. It`s an ActiveX plugin. Personally I don`t recommend you to do this, as Firefox doesn`t support ActiveX for security reasons.

    I guess It`s up to you though.

    I don`t know what`s changed. Maybe it`s something to do with the current version of Firefox(1.5.0.6), or perhaps the website has made a change.

    You could always use IE for that website. I`m sure you wouldn`t have any problems then.

    Regards Howard :)
