I'm unable to watch any PBS shows online...seems to lock up...notice cdn.visible.measures.com in lower left corner: "Connecting to cdn.visiblemeasures.com..."' I waited for several minutes, but the program never started. Windows vista operating system, Adobe Flash 10 reinstalled last eve.

Are you able to watch videos elsewhere? Please post a link so I can check it out myself. I don't think PBS has any geographical restrictions.

Hi,
This is the link I've been trying to use: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/wolverine-chasing-the-phantom/full-episode/6078/

Just determined that I can watch a few of the videos...older ones...but not the one I would like to see, although it indicates the full episode is available. How can I block google-analytics.com and cdn.visiblemeasures.com...I wouldn't tolerate a stranger peeking through the window of my home...why do these funkwits feel entitled to spy?

Just for the record, I'm running Windows XP with Firefox 3.6.13. I have NoScript (I temporarily allowed all) and Cookie Whitelist (I set it to allow cookies for the session), and I couldn't get that video to play, either. Other, older episodes did play.

It seems there are rights restrictions for this particular video so I can't watch. Maybe you should try Chrome as opposed to IE.

The video fired right up for me. Using Firefox Browser on Ubuntu. USA.
AdblockPlus is active blocking all ad servers.

I have NoScript addon.
Allowed Google apis.com
adap.tv

I always allow NoScript to block Google Analytics.
