Flash Player Action Script Error 1090

Hello Experts,

When viewing a video online (website varies - ESPN, etc.) I frequently (but not always) get the following error from Adobe Flash Player:
An ActionScript error has occurred:
 Type Error: Error #1090: XML parser failure: element is malformed.
          at com.oooyala.player.source::RemoteAssetVideoItem/xmlLoaded()

If you are using Windows 7 or earlier, uninstall Flash, restart, go to the Adobe Web site and install Flash again.

It could be the site you are using.

I'm curious, though ... why Windows 7 and earlier?  I'm actually using Windows 8.1, but I figured it's worth a shot anyway.  Unless there's something different there?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
For Windows 8.1, Flash is built into Windows 8.1 and not separately managed, uninstalled, or installed.

Run Windows Update and see if a Flash Update is available. There was one for Windows 10, so likely also Windows 8.1.

Check the site on another computer because it could be a web site problem.
