Problems with Flash player
Hey tech wizards, I'm having a bit of a problem with Flash videos, Youtube especially.
If I pick a random video it starts fine and I can skip to any part of the vid that is already buffered...but as soon as I try to skip to an unbuffered part, the message "an error has occured, please try again later" shows up. That happens with every video I start.
I've had a few flash vids from different sites crash on me the last couple of days, but now other flash based sites seem to be working OK.
I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox 9.0.1 with the latest Flash player. I already tried to clear cache, cookies and browser history and re-installed both Firefox and Flash, nothing working. The error also shows up when I start Youtube with the Internet Explorer.
Does anybody have an idea what I could do? Or maybe it's not my computer's fault and somebody else is experiencing this too?

I would try to completely un-install and re-install flash, not just update it. Adobe products can be heavy on the registry settings which can cause problems that are not corrected when you update.
