I cannot view videos suddenly on a site i know to be safe, and up and until two three days ago was working fine. I get message that states"Oops cannot locate url video" and prior to that that Firefox cannot run html 5 or something to that effect.Not sure i understand what is going on but it looks like a plugin is required.
I updated Adobe Flash so that is latest version.I also played around with flash controls and whitelisting certain sites i know are good,but that did not make difference.Perhaps i should not have tampered with these flash controls(upper right-hand menu in Mozilla Firefox that allows you to white-list sites etc...)
On this site, which up until three days ago was working just fine,(it is chess site with live commentary btw) others were experiencing same video issues as i was,so i am not alone with this problem.I also tried another browser,Chrome,same site,same live video commentary and there was no problem at all. So it appears that there is some issue with Firefox that is not allowing me to view this video. Can someone guide me through this mess?

Hey Spunk, you be good. Wow! Yeah resetting to default managed to do the trick.I got back ability to view video! Many thx. I do get right at start of video a warning thAT THIS BROWSER DOESN'T SUPPORT html 5.video etc...to check settings blah... but it always did this anyway and then the video would load. I tried refreshing Mozilla before you asked me to but the problem persisted,maybe what you asked was setting it to default,which may not be the same as refreshing the browser,right?
Problem seems resolved.
Anyhow, it looks like Mozilla Firefox is ending their support for Win XP updates by September of this year,another reason for Win XPers to move on to greener pastures and upgrade.
Should i ever tamper with the flash control settings hould this problem reoccur? They ask you to whitelist sites that you know to be safe.
Many thanks Spunk!

You shouldn't have any problems and shouldn't need to change any settings, but I would either move onto a browser that is still supported or consider upgrading your OS to something newer like Windows 7 etc.

Problem has reemerged only on my PC,still giving me same message about html 5 video and browser,so i don't know what is going on.
I currently have it running on my Acer laptop but that is using Firefox as browser on Win 7Pro,and no problems,same browser but different OS. Reinstalling Firefox doesn't appear to be solving this video issue,Updated Adove Flash to latest version as well.Ran MAMB no issues whatsoever.It appears the live video doesn't seem to play.If i go back the previous day i can play the taped version of the live event with no issues.So this is really weird

It appears that problem like i said reemerged on Firefox and only in live commentary.If i go to replay the live event the next day,the video works.Very strange as Chrome has no problem broadcasting video of live event,neither does my laptop using Win 7 Pro on Mozilla Firefox,it works. So there is something about this html 5.video on my Win XP that is preventing me from viewing the video of this live ebent. I cannot figure it out.Can you help again.
P>S I went back and unmarked this thread as being unsloved.I don't know if that is right procedure or not.
