    Getting an error message "You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video

    I am trying to play an online video in my Internet Explorer but it flashes an error message "You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video.". I have tried to download the Adobe flash player to it but failed. When i contacted some specialists, they told me that IE10 already comes with Flash player so there is no need to download it externally. What should i do?

    It is right that Internet Explorer in windows 8 comes with pre-installed Adobe Flash Player so there is no need to install it again. In your case, there is ome issue with your Internet Explorer settings. Resetting all the settings will fix your issue.To do the same, Open Internet Explorer and press "Alt + X" button on your keyboard. You will see a new window. Click on "Internet Options">>"Advance" tab. Now click on "Reset" option under "Reset Internet Explorer Settings". It will restore Internet Explorer to its default settings. Once done that,try to play the same video again. I am sure that you would be able to play it without any issue.

    You are truly in a situation.

    Yes IE10 comes bundled with Adobe Flash player which is absolutely necessary to run graphic related files.

    You have a couple of ways to fix the problem.
    Open Internel Exploter--tools--internet options--advance--reset, to reset all settings.
    Uninstall the installed Adobe Flash Player from control panel--programs-- AF P--uninstall.
    Then download latest from adobe website and install afresh.

    Those will solve your problem.

    Well IE10 comes with latest version of Adobe Flash player.

    If you are using IE10 then this type of problem may not be occured.

    Well if you are getting any error message of updating then you should update the newer version.

    If in updating you are getting any error then you should update the IE again.

    If it is latest version then uninstall it.

    Then download again from internet then install it freshly in your system.

    Now play the youtube video.

    It will run now.
