How can I fix an unsupported form of compression?

June 30, 2012 at 00:18:45
Specs: Windows XP Home Edition version 2002 SP3, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4400+ 2.21 Ghz/2.00 GB RAM
discovered the issue on youtube. SOme videos play fine, and sometimes I get a "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression", error and the rest of time videos won't load at all. I've also noticed that Some webpages appear as scripts or just data instead of the actual webpage content.

"The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression"

That's a problem for the website to sort out, not you. The error is at their end.

I doubt it is the website.

Assuming you're running Firefox, do you have the latest version? Is your java up to date? Do you have the latest version of flash? Are your video codecs up to date?

Whats odd is Firefox'll display the pictures of each video (before you select them for viewing) but won't play them. Now with IE the videos will play but there's no preview display for any of the vids. I Get a constant error of "Object doesn't support this property or method" through IE but no discernable errors display on firefox.
