Can't play certain content on my pc

by 1Chris / July 27, 2008 10:17 AM PDT

My son has been watching cartoons on the Cartoon Network Toomami Jetstream. His current computer will play the ads as infinitum but the cartoons just won't play. This is the case with two computers I have for him. I downloaded the latest Flash Player and the latest Java. What could it be? One machine uses Windows XP, the other 2000.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I installed Firefox 3 on that machine too. This is pretty weird since just about everything else works.
