The clue is that ACTIVE X

Some antivirus suites and even Internet Explorer block Active X.

Did you try another browser like Firefox or Chrome?

Downloaded Chrome as suggested and it works a treat, all video clips can now be opened.
Thanks a lot, Bob.
Sorry I forgot to mention that I was using Windows 7 with I.E. 9 as browser.

I found Chrome to play nicer than IE. It shouldn't matter today but I fear I'd rather switch than fight.
