Adobe Flash Video Player do not run with Explorer

Did another test , this time using Firefox : works fine, can play all videos
So problem IS with the new MS Explorer  Explorer 8.0.6001.18702
the specific message I get from the "Weather stromtracker is :
"To view radar loops you need to install the Flash player plug-in for Internet Explorer. "
Should I re- install Explorer 8 ?

Hi,

Check these step:
Regarding this issue, it may be caused by one of the following factors.
 
1.      Corrupted Adobe Flash Player
2.      Incorrect IE settings

At this point, I suggest we refer to the following steps to check this issue.
Step 1: Reset Internet Explorer
====================
For Internet Explorer 8.0:
-----------------------------
1. Click "Start", click "Run", please type "inetcpl.cpl" (without quotation marks) and press "Enter" to open the Internet options window.
2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab.
3. Click "Reset…" to reset Internet Explorer settings.
4. Check "Delete personal settings" and click "Reset" to confirm the operation.
5. Click "Close" when the resetting process is complete.
6. Launch "Internet options" window and switch to the "Advanced" tab again.
7. Uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions" in the Settings box.
8. Switch to the "General" tab, click "Use Blank" under the Home page area
9. Click "Apply" and “OK".
10. Close the Internet Explorer window.

 Step 2: Manually Install Adobe Flash Player

The first link above is for IE 6 and 7 and addresses a know issue from several years ago.  This appears to be a new "feature" of IE not playing well with Flash.  Not sure in reinstalling anything is going to fix it as Adobe and MS will first engage in a bout of finger-pointing before a patch to one system or the other is released.  My money is on Adobe releasing yet another Flash player upgrade.

Shree - It was , indeed, a problem with the IE8 settings.
I only had to do Step #1.
Thank You !
Pierre.
