Resolved Question

Cnet Video

I'm not sure why, but my computer will not play any Cnet video when I go to the Cnet Video section of the site. I can watch video in reviews and news areas, just not the video section. When I get to the videos I can look through the "Most Popular" and "Newly Listed" videos but nothing shows where to video should be, nor where the playlist should be on the right side. I have uninstalled both Adobe Flash and Firefox and reinstalled to no avail. Any help with this problem would be great!
Thank you,

Just A Thought...Using An Ad-blocker???

In reply to: Cnet Video

Many of the CNET videos startup with an advertisement. On this computer, when I enable a HOSTS file, which prevents such adverts from loading on the screen, it will also prevent the CNET videos from playing.. I have to disable the ad- blocker before the video will show up.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestion...

I'm not sure why, but I ended up running system restore because of my hatred for Firefox's changes in version 6. That's another post. Anyway for some reason it's fixed. I know it sounds odd, but I've been working on computers for a while and I've never heard of system restore fixing a problem like this. (Just a side note, it'll probably never work again.)
