I can't stream videos anymore. Suddenly, without installing anything or changing anything I stopped being able to stream any videos. I have an Ad blocker on and a tracking site blocker as well. Both of them were installed LONG before I was unable to stream anything. 1 day back I suddenly became unable to stream anything. Including Pandora, Youtube, Vimeo :(

My laptop is on the same network and can stream videos normally.

Have you tried disabling your security software temporarily to see if it makes any difference? – Lee Taylor Apr 8 '13 at 3:09
Yes it makes no difference. I tried to disable everything and it didn't help at all! – makakas Apr 8 '13 at 3:13
It literally happened suddenly, without me changing anything. – makakas Apr 8 '13 at 3:13
Did you restart your computer meanwhile? Rebooting can fix problems related to drivers and hardware acceleration. – Havenard Apr 8 '13 at 3:32
Yeah I have done that about 4 times since this incident happened. – makakas Apr 8 '13 at 3:39

Sounds like Flash Player has been removed. Please check if you have both 32 and 64 bit versions just in case. Also I would put Pandora and the rest into a white list.
