I have installed Macromedia Flash Player but still don't see any Flash content. What is wrong?

On the Macintosh there is a setting in Internet Explorer to enable plug-ins. This setting is located in the Explorer Preferences menu of the browser. In the Preferences dialog box, select Web Content under Browser Display. Then ensure that the Enable Plug-ins option is selected.
Internet utilities blocking ActiveX
Some Internet Utilities, such as Norton Internet Utilities, perform functions similar to a firewall and may restrict viewing of ActiveX controls. You need to ensure that your firewall or utility settings are set to allow ActiveX controls or you will not be able to view Flash movies in Internet Explorer.

Why is the video freezing, choppy or constantly rebuffering?
Frozen or choppy video and/or excessive rebuffering usually results from network congestion. Network congestion can occur anywhere on the Internet or in your own network. For the most part, network congestion is outside of your control, and is often unpredictable; it's like getting caught in a nasty traffic jam. If you are experiencing symptoms of network congestion, click on Set Prefs connecting to a lower speed stream or from a higher speed connection or at a different, off-peak, time.
