When trying to get to youtube inside ubot I get the following message:

The Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.
Get the latest Flash Player
Learn more about upgrading to an HTML5 browser

Now I have installed Flash and IE tells me it is running fine. In fact when I try and goto youtube in the browser it works fine.

Win Server 2008R2
IE 9.08
Latest Flash installed.

Thanks for your help.
Ninjamanz.

Have you tried changing the user agent? Posted Image

I find that Chrome seems to work well too...

Perhaps because it is a fellow g00gle product.

Thanks all, no joy here.

Tried switching agents to IE9m Safari, Chrome and even Firefox.

I am wondering if there is some kind of security thing in place that would stop the IE session from ubot running anywhere outside a normal browser session.

Seems to work fine when I select Android.

Did some more digging around and found that if I goto this page:

http://www.youtube.com/html5/


UNder the section "What does my browser support" within a ubot browser - irrespective of the user agent - I have Video Tag ticked, but h.264 and WebM unticked.

So I went and installed
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/webmmf

But this brings no joy either.

However if I go and open proper browser sessions, EG IE9 I get the told that my browser supports Video Tag, H.264 and WebM.

What's that all about then!!

Sorted it out.

The problem it seems is to do with the way the Flash player installs.

http://get.adobe.com.../otherversions/

I selected Win7, and then other browsers and installed that version instead.

Now it is working.

Glad you got it sorted out.

Threads like this can help others identify possible problems with different systems. Seems like there is alot of threads around here similar to this one.

Maybe somebody could make one big thread of possible solutions to the different problems scattered around the forum... Just an idea
