Flash Player for Windows Vista



  • 1. Aspect Ratio
    I have a widescreen monitor (1440x900), and when I browse the internet and find flash videos on certain websites, for some reason my browser stretches them to 16:9 instead of the 4:3 ratio that they are supposed to be. And it remains stretched when I make it Full Screen. But I don't want it to do that. It's nice having it fill up my screen, but I'd rather see the video in its intended ratio insteald of having a stretched picture where people are short and wide. Is there any way to fix this? Is it browser-related?
  • 2. Flash Player won't download from anywhere!
    Just rebuilt PC from scratch - Win XP SP2. IE7. Avast AV. Will not download the flash player from Adobe site or any mirrors. Adobe site just hangs on the web page after clicking the download option. Pops up (inc toolbars) are off. Mirrors (ZDNET) start downloading but speed drops to less than 1Kb/s and eventually stop! Is this something with a recent Microsoft update? Been through the Forums. Tried the SubinACL option. I last rebuilt the PC about 6 months ago and there was no problem downloading then! Any help gratefully received!! Chris

    Hi Please tell me if i am just stupid but why cant i fast forward on videos playing on theis flash player ?
  • 4. Where are Flash Player MSIs
    I signed up for a free license to distribute Flash player. I'm looking for the msi so I can push it out but for some reason I can't find it. I can find the web page where you download and install. I can find the archives where you can download all the old and latest version but that's an exe - not an msi. I know I've done this before but I can't seem to find the msi's. Could someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Their plans are to do that after the 32-bit unix/linux ports (although they 
would most likely be working on 64-bit platforms already).  First things

2.Flash Player and Windows Vista Fix

Hi all,
 I installed Windows Vista Ultimate last weekend, and like many I found that 
the flash player did not work on many sites including YouTube etc.

 Well, the good news is I think I have the fix that many of you have been 
looking for:

 I navigated my way to:


 Then right clicked over both 'Flash9b.ocx' and 'FlashUtil9b.exe', and chose 

 In properties choose the 'security' tab > Click on the 'everyone' account, and 
the button called 'edit' and then tick the box called 'allow full control' and 
also choose your own Windows local account name.

 Once you have done this for both files run the FlashUtil9b.exe and it should 
install and update and tell you to restart. Do so and you should find that 
YouTube and other sites that use flash now work.

 Let me know how you get on.

3.Flash Player Streaming Windows Vista

My company recently started using Flash Media Server to stream audio and video 

 My boss just installed Windows Vista Ultimate and now no streaming content 
will play at all. Simple Flash animations work, but nothing that accesses the 
Flash Media Server for content. I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple 
versions of the Flash Player on his machine but nothing seems to work. I also 
tried the new "Reset" feature in IE that is supposed to return it to it's 
shipping state and that didn't work. I navigated to the "System 32" folder and 
ran the Flash Updater EXE. I downloaded and installed all of the available 
updates through "Windows Update".

  I also tested Flash Objects that stream video on Adobe.com and they don't 
play either. Has anyone heard of this happening or know what I need to do to 
fix it? I don't know if this is a bug in the Flash Player or with Windows Vista.
