We're looking into it. If you try a different browser do the videos play ok?

Is this where you're trying to play videos?

What version of IE are you using on your OS X machine?
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / January 20, 2014 7:35 AM PST

I was expecting Firefox or Chrome but not IE, for which there is no OS X version.

If you are running Windows on your Mac, the answer IE would make sense but would not be helpful as they are trying to sort out the problems with Cnet video on OS X.
They know it works on Windows.

Download and install Firefox for Mac and see if the video runs correctly then.
