Applications :: Safari Downloading Flash Videos When I Don't Want It To?

Nov 24, 2009

this happens at least 2-3 times a day. I will click to go to a youtube video, or some video on a site. The download box will immediately pop up and it will start to download the flv file of the video i'm watching. It gets annoying, but it doesn't happen all the time.

is there any way to turn this off?

Safari :: How To Play Flash Videos On It

May 28, 2012

I have been using this website. [url] to play some old videos of my favorite show... I was watching them today and It took a long time for them to stream so I let it load for like 30 mins and then played it. Some times it took longer. Some times it was really "chopped" playback... I thought if I uninstall the Flash Player and then Reinstall it, it would update and then load faster so I did. I finished the instalation process and then I go to the website and the video black box (where you would view the video and there would be a play button) wasn't even there anymore. Like I can't click on any video-type things. I don't understand what I need to do and I don't know who I need to ask about this... I really want to watch these videos. I tried to go to Youtube and see if it's all videos but it wasn't, just this website's.If it was working fine 4 hours ago and all i did was reinstall the Flash player thing then why would it not work now?

Lately I've been having a lot of trouble watching flash videos.

I've tried emptying the cache, resetting Safari, repairing permissions, restarting my MBP and rebooting the router. Nothing works.

Applications :: Google Chrome Not Plays Flash YouTube Videos?

Jun 29, 2010

For some odd reason, my Google Chrome browser will not show the videos from YouTube, but I can hear the sound in the background.

This problem happened during either after I downloaded all of my OSX updates (this is a new macbook), or after I installed SilverLight to watch some videos on Netflix.

In the past, neither of these had that effect on Google Chrome.

Safari shows videos just fine, so I'm not sure why Google Chrome is all of a sudden having this issue.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: QuickTime Videos And Embedded Flash Videos Not Working?

Jun 26, 2012

I've recently upgraded to Lion and have found that Quicktime movies and embedded Flash movies won't work. With the embedded flash all I get is a black box, and with quicktime movies, such as the ones on the Apple website, I get nothing - the irony of not being able to watch movies on the Apple site with my Apple iMac gives me a little chuckle. Anyways ....... I've been reading thread after thread and trying lots of different things but nothing works. I've got this feeling inside that says it's something simple but just can't seem to find it.

Safari :: Flash Videos, They Are Only Display In "Private Browsing" Mode In 5.1.7

May 13, 2012

The symptoms is: The flash videos are only display with a full red bar and nothing happen, no video no sound nothing. The Flash player was upgrade with before safari 5.1.7. I have an iMac with SL, and a Macbook with SL too. However after I upgraded safari 5.1.7 the flash videos are not display correctly, (only videos). The same happen in both computers. I need to tell you that I follow all the possible recommendations that I founded in internent. I uninstall flash pug-in many times. I restore both. I switch many buttons and options like "reset safari", "empty cahe", "block pop-up windows", "enable java-script", "enable java". I turn off and on the firewall. I switch all the options in the flash player plug in preferences. And nothing. I turn on and off the plug ins. In fact I tried all the possibilities in the preferences menus from the programs. 

In one occasion I had a glimpse of functionality for only one hour without problems after I reinstall safari from the Apple website, but only worked until I turned off the computer. The next day was the same problem. After I fought with safari 5.1.7 and the plug-in flash player Now I noticed something wired, only when I switch the "Private browsing" option in safari is when the videos are displayed correctly.

ITunes For Mac :: Downloading SD Videos From Store?

Sep 2, 2014

How to download SD video's from the ITunes store without making it complicated? 

Right now, I am buying HD versions of videos so I can play them to their greatest on the Apple TV. I don't however want the HD version of the video on my iphone, SD is fine and doesn't take up huge amounts of space. Right now, I have to go the ITunes store on my iphone, search for the movie and then scroll to the bottom and click "Available in SD" and then click download.

Surely there has to be an easier way?! I should just be able to go to "Videos" on the iphone, and then download in SD, but it will only do it in HD and I cant afford to have a single file taking up 4gb of space.

Applications :: Safari Cannot Play Videos Anymore?

Mar 8, 2010

I don't know what happened, but somewhere along the line Safari simply stopped playing video for me. What's weird is that Youtube does work, yet none of the videos at, say, work. I can't play Apple's brand-new iPad ad either, located here:
Of note is that I do have ClickToFlash as well as BashFlash installed, but that never was a problem before. The videos that do not work in Safari all work, without exception, in Chrome Beta, Firefox and Opera.

Intel Mac :: Downloading Videos Using Real Player?

Apr 23, 2012

Im trying to download videos from youtube and other websites. I downloaded the real player from the website. 

In windows, if we wish to download, we move thw cursor to the video and a small tab pops up saying "Download". We click on it, it downloads. 

Now in Mac, there is a add on called download manager for real player. 

I watched a few vieods over the youtube, to guide myself. Instructions were to open real player and download manager. 

Then open the link in safari or firefox where your video is and play it, once the video starts streaming, it should appear in the download manager, and i should be able to download it. 

But when i follow all these procedures, the video is not appearing in the download manager. 

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), The same is working fine with USB
