How do I get Adobe Flash Player to allow me to watch movies on Second Life?

Question

I recently downloaded Adobe Flash Player version 11, for Windows 7.  This is supposed to allow me to play videos inworld such as Youtube vids on my inworld screen.

But so far I've not had any luck.  Can anyone tell me if there is anything else I need to do or whether I've overlooked something?

Thanks for any feedback.

In order to play Flash format videos (eg YouTube videos), you must have the generic Adobe Flash plugin installed. If you use IE as your web browser and already have Flash, you will need to get the generic Flash plugin; see here.
linux users need to have gstreamer installed, with the “bad” plugin set.

I have researched this for days now to get video to play in SL with all the recent upgrades to the viewers.  I found that flash player version 11.8 is not compatible with media in SL.  So I uninstalled flash player 11.8 and downloaded and installed Flash player 11.7 and now have video working. I did have to set the install to NOT update so that the flash player does not automatically update, thus defeating the purpose of watching videos in SL.  I am still able to stream all videos in my browser.  I thought maybe it was because I was on a Mac, but also solved another PC's user inability to view video's as well.  

To do a clean uninstall for Adobe Flash for both PC and Mac vist: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315

Install Adobe Flash 11.7 at: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/889580?tstart=0

Hope this helps.......

Hoping sl updates its own media compatibility with Adobe Flash Player. Agree it is a step backwards to have to use a previous version of an industry standard in order to make sl features work correctly.....

Hi Missy, I did the clean uninstall and followed all instructions and then downloaded Adobe Flash 11.7 and it worked after a bit at the Damani Media store on their TV and then the next time it didn't so I don't know what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions?
