How to allow streaming video
Security Suite has suddenly stopped me from playing videos such as from YouTube.
I turned of Security Suite and the videos worked fine so it must be something under Security Suite.
I looked under Program Controls-->Programs but cannot tell which program is causing the problem.
I have all the typical media players such as Windows Media Player, Adobe, Quicktime, etc.
Any ideas on how to fix and thanks much.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

or you can simple shut-off all 'privacy controls' - cookies, ads, mobile control - these can prevent proper access3 - for some streaming media - it is sometimes recommended to lower program control from 'high' to 'medium' < just check to see if it works or...4 - for some streaming media - it is sometimes recommended to "temporarily"
lower ZA's firewall settings > 'internet zone - from 'high' to 'medium' - remember to return to high after use.5 - in some rare cases, the anti-virus/ spy site blocker
may hinder full access<hr>For further info. - right click ZA tray icon > click "Help" = this is your User Guide > read thru - >look at chapter 'troubleshooting' > third-party software > streaming media programs.Also look at 'privacy protection' - this feature's setting will sometimes hinder proper access; sometimes - shutting it off helps.
