Computer Will Not Play Video – Your player is not updated. If you do not update your video playing programs regularly, then it may be that you are missing a vital upgrade, in which case you will have problems launching your player and getting it to function properly.
You are missing a necessary plugin. Many video players on the Internet operate by way of plugins (programs that enable specific functionality necessary to displaying/running information on a website. If you are missing a plugin that is needed to play a video, then you will likely get a message prompting you to download the corresponding plugin.
Incompatible codec. Online videos are “written” for video playing programs using codecs. A codec is like a language; video playing programs basically interpret a video’s codec in order to put a picture on your screen. If a video player is not familiar with the particular language – or codec – your video is written in, then it will not be able to play it. In the case of codec errors, your best bet is to download a compatible player.
Not enough memory. Believe it or not, your computer must draw from its memory resources in order to play videos. If your computer is short on memory, then it simply won’t be able to deliver when you press the play button.
