This topic was a bit hard to place but it may slightly work in this forum. The forum’s description said any programs often used along side blender or something like that.
Just the thing is it’s more than just helpful with blender.
Lately on my computer ive had trouble watching any video on the internet that isn’t directly on youtube itself.
Such as just now i was trying to look at a tutorial on Blendercookie, and it was a vimeo player put onto the blender cookie site.
I’ve also noticed it’s the same for any player that is being played on a site that isn’t the video hosting sight.
What happens is, with youtube players, the video will begin playing and i can watch the buffering meter reach about 10-20 seconds and then immediately says it’s buffered the entire video. When the video reaches that 10-20 second mark, the video quits and youtube acts as if the video has just finished. saying i made it to the 0:13/0:13 mark, when the video was really longer than that.
With vimeo players or others it will reach that 10-20 second mark and just display an error about he video.
There was a site that offered downloads for the videos aswell. If i tried to download the video (by right clicking on it and choosing to save the video) to bypass the player having a problem, it would download incredibly fast and then only play to that 10-20 second mark and the windows media player or what not would error and crash.
I don’t know much about other players besides youtube, but i know that i can watch youtube videos just fine on the youtube website.
This has been going on for about a week now so you can imagine how inconvenient it’s begging to feel. Especially when sometimes somehow set the player to not have the “watch on youtube” button.
I imagine that my issue would be with some sort of program that needs to be updated or redownloaded… Such as Flash, Acrobat, Java, or other things like that. My knowledge of computers isn’t quite great enough to accurately know what those programs do. I know Java is some sort of scripting type of thing, i think Acrobat also reads scripting? and Flash i know of as a Media player… but i don’t know much else on them.
Anyway, any sort of advise is appreciated (:
Thank you (:
