    Several things come to mind here, some hackers have been putting things up on facebook that are not a video at all, but a click in any pop up box downloads a virus, are you sure the video is genuine?
    Secondly, Video links on Facebook work at their best if the video owner uploads the video to Youtube first, then posts the Youtube link on Facebook.

    Check back with your friend first that it is a genuine video and that it isn't a hacker has got into his account.

    Hi, are you sure Flash player actually installed after downloading it? Some downloads do need to be double clicked to start the installation. Have a look in your downloads folder if you have one.
    have you turned off and rebooted the computer since installing Flash Player?
    Which browser are you using, Internet Explorer or Firefox or other?

    You made my day too. I'm really laughing.

    I suspect that you were running the wrong version or none at all or not updated.

    For the record it's best to download straight from Adobe rather then a third party site.

    Flash issues can be a pain. I'm glad the link provided some insight.

    Look at the smiley face on the toolbar twedspeed.

    Many thanks for posting back.
