If you keep getting "HELLO, YOU EITHER HAVE JAVASCRIPT TURNED OFF OR AN OLD VERSION OF ADOBE'S FLASH PLAYER....GET THE LATEST FLASH PLAYER": don't bother downloading and re-installing the latest Flash over and over and over again. You will get absolutely nowhere doing that, because that is only adding to the problem. Your YouTube was working fine just a little while ago, right? There can really be only 3 possibilities: 1) something is wrong with YouTube 2) something is wrong with your cache 3) something is wrong with Flash 10 1) YOUTUBE: Your problem may fix itself within a couple hours, or by the next day, because YouTube often "shuts down" a bunch of their own servers every single day without warning anybody in order to update all kinds of stuff. During those occasions, it's YouTube's transmissions of "JavaScript" or "Flash" that are poor -- not your reception of it. This sometimes creates "time-out" or "run-time" errors, and can be solved by hitting "F5", "Refresh", or "Back" & "Forward" on your browser. 2) CACHE: If the following day your YouTube is still stuck and showing you those awful "JavaScript" and "Flash Player" messages, it's possible that your sub-directories of "temporary internet files" and "cache" memory are full, and won't take anymore. Thus videos cannot even buffer or make it onto your screen. "Temporary internet files" are 1000s of tiny bits of websites permanently put on your computer's hard-drive. They'll stay there forever and ever, gradually plugging up your computer (like hair slowly clogs a sink drain) until you get rid of them. Because your computer now has such little space in which to "cache" a video, YouTube will mistakenly think that your Java Script "run-time environment" or "buffer overflow" is off, or that your Flash player (unable to absorb those videos) is older than "FLASH 7". The solution to all that is to exit YouTube (but not your web browser), then clear your "cache" of all its "TIFs", "cookies" and "history". (See below.) After that, shutdown and reboot. 3) FLASH: Watching YouTube vids hasn't changed in the past 2 years. (You could still use Flash 8 if you want to.) It looks like the newest Flash players are causing many YouTubers a lot of grief, especially all 8 variations of version 10. It's absolutely nuts that there's 10.0.525, 10.1.218, 10.2.26, 10.2.54, 10.12.10, 10.12.36, 10.15.3 and 10.22.87. Usually most updates are good for only 1 thing:...Software conflicts. I've never strayed away from 9.47, and many "flashers" use 9.45. Think of those 2 Flashs as Windows XP compared to Vista. Look at what the Asker wrote to this answer of mine: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... If that seems interesting to you, here is the appropriate link: http://www.oldapps.com/flash_player.php?... Note 1: if you've got an "Accelerator", dump it, burn it, rip it, kick it, trash it, disable it, uninstall it; do all that you can to get as far away from it as possible. Several "Ad Block" and "Messenger" programs also conflict with YouTube. Note 2: longer videos may require "Flash" and "Shockwave" to play proper. You don't need anything else -- so avoid the sales pitches some Yahooligans are shilling, because they are really disguised salespeople & peddlers. Their answers have nothing to do with your question, and their wares may actually worsen your problem. Besides, what kind of idiotic answer is "Despite the fact you can't even watch or access videos, buy our downloader." [my paraphrase] Note 3: a very odd fix that once worked for me was altering the URL from "www.youtube.com" to simply "youtube.com". Note 4: if you downloaded Flash, did you actually INSTALL it afterwards? If you got Firefox, did you enable the add-on? I hope that my info and long answer are quite helpful to you.

If you know of other vids using the same music, either YouTube will take them down eventually, or someone who's jealous will flag them. If you're willing to take the chance and re-upload your video with the same music, do not write the name of the song or artist in your title, description or tags. Also, avoid irrelevant phrases like "no copyright infringement intended", "I do not own the music" or "I don't take any credit for this song". Not only do the computer servers at YouTube's upload center look out for song titles, artists' names and sentences like those, you're also reaffirming that you've knowingly taken, used, copied or maybe even stolen somebody else's copyrighted material. You should also consider the fact that the music-recording industry is starting to use hidden "watermarks" or "fingerprints" buried within their music, in order to uncover and identify their illicit use. As such, it is possible that no matter how many times you try to upload your video, it may always be rejected because of "copyright infringement". You would thus be better off trying to find a different recording of the music you want to use. If you've noticed that other videos are using the exact same music, those videos were probably uploaded before this new technology really started coming into being. The only possible exception to everything that I've just written above is for you to use music that is shorter than 30 seconds. If you listen carefully to any talk-show on radio or TV, they will never use or play other people's music for longer than 30 seconds when introducing a guest or going into/out of commercials. Can you guess the reason? (Hint: it has to do with "licensing fees" and "royalties".) I hope my info has been helpful to you.

javascript is usually turned on by default...so, it might be your flash player is outdated.. you can try a different browser... these will help you... 1. Use Opera browser, it will load faster and smoother, and re-install latest flash (the correct way) get the latest flash player, and install it.. make sure all the browsers are NOT running during installation... this is the right way to install the flash player. by the way, the javascript is turned on by default. OR.. 2. It could be due to slow connection or high traffic. Try watching it during off peak hours, the video will be smoother. Or you could watch it offline smoothly... try using 'zillatube' . It works very well - to get ZillaTube, click the link below, and select the first search result for download... http://www.dogpile.com/dogpile/ws/results/Web/zillatube/1/417/TopNavigation/Relevance/iq=true/zoom=off/_iceUrlFlag=7?_IceUrl=true

Try to use axara video converter. It can download videos from YouTube, convert it to any formats and for any media devices, can create DVD and burn it to disc. Also it has good video editor.
