    Unable to watch streaming video.

    I am unable to watch live streaming video. I am able to watch You Tube, DVDs, pre-recorded videos on News Sites. However, if it is a live feed, the word onnecting appears, then Ready. However, it appears as a Black/ Blank screen.

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You likely need the Flash Player plug-in for your internet browser.

    BTW: Right now it seems that CNN streaming video is down (at least for me)
    if that is what you are basing your complaint upon.

    He said he could watch youtube. Read it again if you don't believe me. That
    means FlashPlayer is functioning just fine. It's likely that he needs other
    plug-ins to watch the streaming video or the live feed connection is too
    busy/not available any longer.
