Windows 7: ABC News

ABC News

Does anyone have any idea why the videos from ABC will not play (black screen only) on either Firefox or IE on my Win 7 64 bit system while the NBC videos play just fine? Stephanie Seymour Photo Controversy Has Web Abuzz - ABC News
This happens even if I use the 32bit version of IE.

I fired up my old XP machine and I don't have this problem there.

Worked find in Firefox on my iMac. Not sure why you are unable to see it.

Oh, just notice, finally hit 1500 after almost two years, yet another milestone in my long and hard fought life.

It worked for me with Firefox and Windows 7 64. Obviously this isn't helping your problem telling you that it's working for us, but I really don't have a solution, especially since the other clips are working for you.

Maybe try a re-install of flash on both browsers?

Flash et al up to date etc?

Not using adblock or noscript that blocks elements to the site?

abc.com and abcnews.com need to be allowed. Maybe even go.com

Flash et al up to date etc? Yes. I even tried the "square" edition supposedly for 64 bit systems. I have version 10,1,102,64 installed.

Not using adblock or noscript that blocks elements to the site? Use adblock, but not noscript.

abc.com and abcnews.com need to be allowed. Maybe even go.com Have added abc.com, abcnews.com, go.com, and abcnews.go.com as exceptions in adblock.
All of the above has no effect on the problem.

Using the same pc I just tried to watch the ABC video on a Ubuntu installation in a virtual machine on my C Drive. It played as it should have. This suggests to me that the problem is strictly in my Windows installation.
