Well I can tell you that if you are using Firefox you must have the AdBlocking Plus feature disabled or you will encounter exactly the behavior you describe. It can be disabled for individual sites.

Does the problem occur in both IE and Firefox?


Are you having any other scripting related issues -- such as blank pages?

Most movies on the net are coded into flash video. Think about installing the latest Flash and Shockwave players. Also worth looking at installing Real Alternative (an alternative to the 'Real Player') and Quicktime Alternative (an alternative to the Quicktime player) oh yeah and Media Player Classic - all of which are downloadable from Free-Codecs.

If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Can you post a copy of the "silent runners" startup log. You will need to right click on their download url and save it to the desktop or other convenient folder. You may need to give it permission to run:

http://www.silentrunners.org/

Also, the ABC site requires a player install -- have you reinstalled that for both Firefox and IE?

Would you also go here and tell me if you see "javascript" pop-up? >> http://gateway.lib.ohio-state.edu/tutor/jscript.html

Also please verify that Adblock plus is disabled on the ABC and NBC sites in Firefox.

Excellent -- I was fairly sure it had to be something like that. Since I use Firefox -- it's service was the first to come to mind. But of course there are other applications which also do it. And that explains it applying to Internet Explorer as well.

Some pop-up blockers can also interfere and that is one of the troubleshooting suggestions they make on the ABC site for problems.

By the way, thanks for turning me on to the ABC offerings -- I do quite well with their HD streaming -- just which they had more stuff there.
