CNET Video not working

by Dragon / September 6, 2008 12:28 PM PDT

Someone suggested I see a Cnet video two days ago. I was wondering if someone here might know who to contact, since the videos aren't working?

That one's working here...

Which means it's likely an issue with either your browser or internet security software. Note that it requires Flash be fully updated (try a reinstall), requires extensions like NoScript be disabled or the site be properly white-listed, and that the video may not play if you have various advertising methods blocked, the last of which is most annoying.

I got rid of NoScript a long time ago. Didn't like it. I tried disabling web shield, but no help there.

Uninstalling the flash and reloading did the trick.

I was just wondering what could have happened to my flash in the first place?

flushing your flash finally fixed it!

Software gets corrupted on all machines. Just like that other stuff, it happens

I found I had lost sound, too
by Dragon / September 8, 2008 8:32 AM PDT

The little icon was missing. I could hear normal computer sounds but not sound from youtube. I discovered I could go to device manager > system speaker > properties > disable device > enable device > reboot.

I got it back, and sound was working.

I'm beginning to wonder if there's something else going on, but I won't worry until something else happens.
