Missing Plugins
July 11, 2011 12:57 PM   Subscribe

I can't see most website content due to some missing plugin. Which one!?

On youtube, Mr. Scruff.com and various other sites most of the website is not available for viewing, with just a box saying "missing plugin." How do I figure out which plugin I'm missing?

I already tried reinstalling adobe Flashplayer, and that didn't work. Any ideas?

Which browser/version are you using?

did you try right clicking on the content piece and viewing properties? That should tell you what it is. From there you can do a google search for whatever it is plus plugin plus whatever browser you are using.
