    The Yahoo! video player is a combination of technologies. The system is designed to playback a number of video formats including flash video, windows media and quicktime. The specific content you are trying to access would make a difference.

    If this is just a problem that you are running in to one day, you might want to try back. If it is a more constant problem, you should contact Yahoo! customer service.

    If you are having the issue for videos played on Yahoo! Movies, you could send in the issue at :

    I had the same problem with youtube. I reinstalled the browser and fixed the problem. I did notice that you can't get IE7, are you able to install Firefox? If so that may help you track down the problem if Yahoo works in Firefox then it just might be a browser issue.
