I was unable to play news videos, using Dragon 23.1, with Adobe Flash 11.5, so I unstalled that flash version and installed Flash 10.3 and Java 6 Update 30. Now I am able to play all the videos, but I get a popup message that says I am not using the latest Flash, and asks me to click on “Update” or “Run This Time”. I click “Run This Time” on every new screen where I get this popup message, and my videos then start again.
Is there a work-around for this, or is it just an inconvenience I will have to put up with? This is just a minor inconvenience, though. I like Dragon. It is faster than Google Chrome, Maxthon3, and Greenbrowser, and uses all of the Chrome extensions that I need. I even like it better than Firefox, which I used for several months.
I have latest Comodo Dragon & latest Adobe Flash Player & no probs with videos, etc here.
Win 7 64
Hi riochet and naren,
There appears to be some inconsistent issues with the latest Dragon and the latest Flash.
When allowing the auto update flash function, try it with Do not allow websites to know where you came from (suppress HTTP Referrer header) disabled.
Thanks, captainsticks, I did that and updated my flash to 11.5. Then I uninstalled the extra Java 6, Update 30, and kept the previously installed Java 7, Update 9 and Java 7, Update 9 for 64-bit, because I have Win7 64-bit Home Premium and need the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Now my videos work for all news medias. Dragon is great.
You are welcome, glad to hear that all appears to be functioning correctly.
I have: Do not allow websites to know where you came from (suppress HTTP Referrer header) turned on all the time when upgrading Flash Player. You have to disable it to install the latest update, if you leave it on.
But My Personal Preference is to run uninstall_flash_player then once all cleaned out. I press Ctrl+Shift+Del to clean out any temp files that Flash had.
So then I go to Filehippo or go to http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer.html to install a fresh copy and I’m good to go.
