Youtube error when logged on with a domain account


In my domain users cannot watch youtube video's. Ther error they get is "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player." No updates or settings I have tried so far have done any good. I am running XP SP3, IE6 ( I have also tried IE7, same problem )

After debugging for a while I found out that if I log in with a local account ( not an AD account ) everything works well so it has to do with some GPO that gets applied when logged on as a domain user. I have made the domain user a local admin with no luck.

Any suggestions appreciated

I spent some time debugging this and looked through all GPO that got applied and none of them had anything to do with IE settings.

After putting this on ice for a few days, the problem resolved itself :) , all of a sudden all workstations were able to watch the videos. Strange indeed

Do you have any Group Policy objects defined that control the "Internet Security" settings in Internet Explorer?  What is it set to?  Medium is default, so you may want to try setting it to that.
