I used to be able to view video clips and things like that on a ton of jokes/funny videos sites (such as stupidvideos.com, dumpalink.com, etc...) before my settings were all reset recently. What is/are the specific security setting(s) that I should change back so that the videos play, instead of only showing me the dreaded little white "x" ??

Thanks!!

Yes, I use IE6, and I've already checked that option. My thinking is that it's one of those settings in Internet Options\Security\Custom Level that blocks particular ActiveX controls, but that's just an educated guess. I'm just not sure which one.

Probably the easiest thing to do is reset to default settings.

I just checked Stupid videos with my Firefox browser and had no trouble viewing the videos. So it is not your ActiveX settings as Firefox doesn't allow Active X.

Could it be an over pompous anti-virus internet security product or a change in firewalls?
