admittedly i am on an xp os of which i am afraid to update. i have gone to a site called old aps, and both the versions of firefox and silverlight i currently have support the youtube. i just can't get anything to load. it's the same with amazon, which is really distressing as i pay for a majority of amazon.

I run Google Chrome on an old XP computer and am able to get youtube and Netflix. A couple of times I got an error and had to update some software, but other than that, try google chrome.

Make sure you have a Flash enabled plugin for your browser.

Without one, you won't see the embeds on this site, either.

When updating flash player is know to fail to remove all of their old files. The easiest way to fix it is to do a manual uninstall and start over.

At this link you will find complete instructions and a link to get the uninstall program. One of those first instructions on the list is to, "Exit all browsers and other programs that use Flash." That will mean as you go through this you will need a second computer to see and refer back to the instructions,or you need to have a copy machine and make a hard copy, or good hand written notes of the information on this page to have while you work through the steps.

The last step is to "Verify that uninstallation is complete." That step involves going to: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

The title of that page is, "Install Flash Player in five easy steps."

"1. Check if Flash Player is installed on your computer"

You click on a yellow button below that instruction which says "check now."

The four steps beyond that and the link you need to get the newest flash player are below that.
