    to watch youtube videos ,it is better to have one of these

    three browsers

    netscape 8


    opera 9

    in these ,java is pre-installed and enabled

    if you cannot watch even in these

    get adobe flash player 9

    and adobe shockwave player

    ie7 is not preferable for youtube

    if you want to watch in ie7

    get j2se runtime environment 1.5


    in ie 7


    manage add-ons

    enable all

    if you still cannot watch


    internet options


    check ...use java

    and add youtube to your trusted sites

    Hi. You didn't mention which security settings you tried to modify in order to enable JavaScript. Assuming that you are using Internet Explorer, try modifying your security settings as follows:

    1. In IE, select the menu option Tools -> Internet Options

    2. Left click on the Security tab

    3. Left click on the Internet web content zone (assuming that you haven't added as a trusted host) to allow you to modify the security settings for most internet sites

    4. Left click on the Custom Level button

    5. The security settings are separated into 7 different categories. The second to last category is named "Scripting". Locate this category and assign the value "Enable" for the 3 security settings named "Active scripting", "Allow paste operations via script", and "Scripting of Java applets".

    6. Click OK and then OK again

    You may need to close your browser and reopen a new one in order for the security settings to take full affect.

    I hope that this resolves your problem.
