I;m running Win XP(for another few months ,at least) and i am watching a live event and it is telling me that
"your browser(Firefox) currently does not recognize any of the follwing video formats available. Click here to check out our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video"
The strange thing is that it worked for same live events last week and i was able to view live video.Furthermore, if i wait a day or several hours after the live event,i am able to replay the event and view the video. This seems to be happening periodically and i cannot figure out for the life of me why it does this and how to remedy it.

Make sure you have the latest FF version 52+++ which is the last for Windows XP.

Using the FF browser https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Uncheck the two things you don't want and download the latest Adobe Flash.

Downloaded the latest adobe flash, did not make any diffference;getting same message that"your browser(Firefox) currently does not recognize any of the follwing video formats available. Click here to check out our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video";
I had this problem before and someone else told me to refresh FF and that really did not solve the problem. The thing is that this problem seems to arise during"live broadcasts" and sometimes i can get the video,other times like today i cannot.It is a real fickle type of thing.
I managed to get the site on my laptop(using Win 7Pro) just to see if it was me or the site and i had no problems at all,video,sound etc...were all fine. I alsohave tried Chrome Google on the PC running Win XP and it also works,although today,it would not load,it kepted looping.
Any other suggestions as to how to fix this issue? Is it possible to manually download the HTML5 software to enale this site on my wion XP? As i indicated, it may work tomorrow and it may not.

OK Corday,i think i found solution,here it is>>
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-flash-player/<< when i downloaded and added this You Tube flash player Add-on, i went back to site and presto it loaded!
So i guess that was the whole issue. It still doesn't explain why after having got the latest adobe flash player,it did not work,but who cares now! I think i solved my own problem.
Many thanks again as always.

When your using IE as a backup browser, is it still the case you need to download once in FF and once in IE from adobe to ensure the ocx plugin gets updated as well ?

Windows Xp slow boot after splash screen
After the Windows Xp splash screen I get about 30 to 40 seconds of blackness (could be more) before the cursor appears. When I start in Safe Mode it takes a long time to load mup.sys but that could just be because it's the last one to load. Here's by most recent ntbtlog.txt: Service...

HDD to record on.
Hi I was looking around for a low size HDD that'll be fast for recording with Fraps. On a game such as MW2 I get stable 70-90 FPS But as soon as i hit that Fraps hotkey, its an instant drop to 30-45fps and it feels terribly laggy. I was thinking of buying a new HDD to record onto, but before...
