BBC iPlayer & Adobve Flash Player

  Glen 13:23 19 Jan 11

I have Vista Business and use Mozilla Firefox. When I open iPlayer and start to run a BBC program I get - "A script in this movie is causing Adobe Flash Player 10 to run slowly. etc etc. Do you want to abort the script?" If I click Yes nothing runs. If I click No the program opens. Looking in control panel/programs, I seem to have Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX and Adobe Flash Player 10 Plug in. Should I uninstal one or both of these, and then instal the latest version - ?

Sorry to say this did not work. I note the same problem on my wife's laptop, so could it be due to the wireless router? She is connected wirelessly and I am connected by ethernet (cable due to distance).

You could try uninstalling Flash Player and reinstalling as it appears this is where your problem lies.

There's also a possibility that you may need to update the device drivers for your graphics/video/display adapter. Go to Device Manager - Display Adapters - right click on your listed Graphics Card - Update Driver Software.

Also the problems you are encountering could be due to a slow Internet connection - but I think you should try Flash Player first.
