  1. Since I have downloaded Windows 10 I can no longer watch online video's.
    Even when trying to watch videos on Youtube all I get is a black screen with audio.
    Sometimes the black screen says video not supported.
    The black and sometimes "green" screen is only where the video should be.
    Hope someone has the solution to this annoying Windows 10.
    I can still watch any of the videos I have saved on my PC , just nothing online.

    I looked at the active program list for my PC and it has Adobe Flash Player already listed.

    I went back into Firefox and found a check box to "uncheck" which allowed Adobe Flash Player to have free access to streaming videos.
    It seems the latest version of Firefox by default will not allow Adobe Flash Player to play because of security risks.
    Hooray! Problem solved!

    Firefox will allow it to play if it's updated to the latest version.
