I am not sure if I know what link you are talking about. Its any video coverage, i.e. cnn news story, music videoland, msnbc news story. when it opens up the screen where you are suppose to be able to see the video is black. i click on the link to troubleshoot and updated my media windows player but that didn't seem to work. hopefully this explanation is better than the first.

Sounds like a very damaged OS.

Since all video fails, you are revealing that the OS took some major damage. Sometimes we see some specific damage or someone installs a firewall/popupstopper and kills off some item but for all video to cease is not good.

Unless you disabled video playback in Tools, Options.
