    It's got to be your computer? I just posted this and was able to see it just fine...

    do you have Adblock enabled or something like it?

    Never heard of adblock. My pop-up blocker is turned off. I still see nothing but a solid black rectangle.

    1. Remove and reinstall flash... close your browser after you download flash before you install.

    2. Try a different browser. If that works go to your browser support site and search the FAQ's and support for video and flash.

    Yup, probably your flash player needs an update. I went through months of having to activate my flash player to watch Youtube videos - I'm using Linux Mint with Firefox - so had to wait for Linux to come up with a fix. Works again now.

    Interesting...

    Clear your cache?


    I rarely watch videos 'from' GIM2. I go to youtube and open in a new browser so I can multitask

    I had that before on a BB that I coded, some people had trouble with vids. I found a better way to embed the video, not the YouTube Code, and that fixed it.

    Could be an HTML5 issue... I dunno how GIM is coded.

    Try using Google Chrome and see how that goes.

    My cache is buried deep in a remote location in the mountains. Do I have a cache on my laptop, too?

    I just switched to Firefox and logged on to GIM2 and I can watch the videos there. I usually use Internet Explorer. So the problem is apparently unique to Internet Explorer.

    How about you, Duck?

    In IE, you need to toggle "compatibility view" to off. Its under Tools on the menu bar. Or there is a little icon up at the top next to the reload circle thingy.
    That'll fix you right up.

    I forget, but one worth sharing/testing again:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ie3SrjLlcUY&sns=em



    I've had the privilege to know, be mentored, have a few beverages and even FLY with many of the "greatest generation" men and some special ladies... For the most part they were that just that good. :thumbs_up:

    Hmm, also had many opportunities w/ Korean, Vietnam vets along with folks "just like me" that served later... Different, but many are "just that good" as well and prove it every day! :cool:

    QWAK,If I click on the youtube link it works fine.:thumbs_up:

    If I click on the black box and get the address this is what I get:

    http://www.youtube.com/embed/ie3SrjLlcUY?wmode=opaque

    the "opaque" at the end of the address must have somthing to do with this problem!:idea::hmmmm2::hmmmm2:
