Hello all, recently something is up with my flash player, my youtube video player has recently changed and I dont know how. Its different and now youtube videos and any flash played videos are very laggy and choppy. How can I check what version of flash i have and is there a way to update, thanks.

Have you tried Flash-Aid (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flash-aid/)

Hi, open firefox, click on tools, addons then type flashaid in the search box and follow the directions it fixes most issues with flash including if you are using chrome.
Thanks

Hi dblackmon, type flash aid then go to the bottom of that page and click view and it should bring up a page to install flashaid or go here to install it.

In firefox select Tools Addons. Then on the Addons page, click the tool button immediately to the left of the search all addons field at the top right of the page. It will display an option that says "Install add on from file"

Are you using Firefox? It doesn't work with Chrome.

When you visit the extension address at Mozilla, it should allow you to install directly. There is no need to download the xpi file. However, you can also drag the xpi file to a Firefox window to initiate the installation process.
