cannot play video in web browser

I just built a computer (purchased all new components & installed in new box).  everything works fine, except one thing; internet explorer & firefox will not play videos.  Google chrome will play with no problem the system will play movies fine.  

I am running windows 7 service pack one
I have the latest version of adobe flash, latest of java.  
I am running AMD Radeon HP7560

Any help on this issue would be appreciated

well obviously the hardware is capable of playing the video because it works in Chrome.  Therefore it is likely a software issue and to diagnose that we need a link to the page, or at least the code.

You may have to install Adobe Flash for IE and Firefox.  Chrome includes Adobe Flash but IE and Firefox do not.

Well, I don't know what happened, but when I came back to the computer and went back into youtube, with firefox, the videos worked perfectly.  So I went into internet explorer and the videos worked good there too.  I am going to give you the 500 points and call this closed.

I did install adobe flash for both firefox and ie and made sure they were both updated
What was causing it to act that way I will never know.
