Video feed only visible from non-administrator account?

By nelsonjgil ·
I recently re-built my HP Pavillion DV6775 - Vista Home Premium SP2. I created three user spaces, two of which have admin priviledges. There is an internet page that I used to visit (before the rebuild) where they have a live video feed. After the re-building, I can only watch the feed from the non-administrator account. Does anybody know whow to solve this? I checked the IE7 and Windows Media Player settings and they're identical. Eventhough this is not a big issue, it puzzles me (and bugs me!). Any ideas?

Some ideas...

Anything installed or configured only for single account?

Check security settings in internet settings. Do you allow scripts and different types of content?

Workaround: Have you tried Mozilla FF (and perhaps VLC player)?

and they have the same security settings. I'm not sure what you mean by "Anything installed or configured only for single account", could you elaborate? Thanks

Compare Plug-Ins, Flash version, Java Versions

I would bet that the issue is more that the non-admin profiles somehow have the right browser plug-ins, or there is something different with respect to the Adobe Flash version and/or Java versions on the different profiles.

I would start by going to the Sun 'Do I have Java' page from each profile, then to the Adobe page which tells you which flash version you have.

I would look closely at plug-ins as well as security settings within IE.

Also clear your cache, cookies, temp files, etc.

I have the latest flash and java versions, I checked the plug-ins and security settings and they're the same in the profiles. I also cleared the temp files, cookies, etc. Am I missing something? Perhaps a more structured approach would help, but I'm not that savvy. Do you know of a way to print or extract in a single file the IE settings so I can compare them more thoroughly?
Thanks for your time
