    :help: Can anyone help!
    When I try to watch the short clips posted on the site or even if I go to the youtube site, the clips keep starting then stopping all the way through, does anyone know why this happens or do I need to download something to make them play properly.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks Angie :thumb: :thumb:

    Usually, providing the clip restarts ok, the problem is simply a slow connection ( well not so simple really as usually impossible to improve due to the wire infrastructure of your town and or area )
    If clips start, play for a few seconds then stop and do not restart that would probably be something you could download called codecs ( they are little plug in programes that do behind the scenes stuff on your player

    Codecs central ( do a search ) do a complete download package that is foc..
    Download it, install it, and the codecs are 'called up' as and when they are needed :Smile:

    suggest you install the latest version of Adobe Flash after removing any old versions you've installed.


    Adobe Flash Player

    Its more than likely your connection speed. All you have to do is once it starts to play, hit pause. Wait until most of it has downloaded and then press play, it will work OK then:thumb:
