    Depending on the format of the video you are trying to watch, you may need to install and/or update the Windows Media Components for Quicktime.

    Download and install from this website:

    More information regarding the site and/or video format would also help.

    Good luck!

    If all else fails, last option is to install Perian, which'll probably solve the problem. Get it here:

    It really is the swiss-army knife for Quicktime!

    Good all-around advice, although it probably won't help for web video. Hopefully the plugin updates will, though.

    What mac is this and what version of OSX are you running? What websites are you trying? Give us an example of what dosen't work.

    Are you sure you followed the first link? Did you try this with Firefox?

    Are you running adblock plus? Adblock messes up a lot of web videos, especially videos, for me. If you are running it, shut it off when you are visiting the video site, don't just set it to allow.

    PORN :eek: OMG. I saw this post and started at post #1 I did not see this coming. Hope the sarcasm poured through there. :D of course you can't watch it it. Macs are pure and virginal, it won't let you....

    EDIT*** Do you have Flip-4-Mac installed?
