HP Pavilion dv7 notebook

Windows 7 64-bit

Radeon ™ HD 7470M
(not sure what other spec's are relevant)
Anyways the problem is that many videos I encounter on the web give me a blank video with only sound.  As far as I can remember on this laptop I've never been able to view Vimeo videos or Vines.  Youtube usually worked fine, but recently I've been having problems with SOME youtube videos in chrome only.
Works in Explorer, but not in chrome

Works in both
As I said Vimeo never works whether I try Chrome, Explorer, Firefox...  Here's an example
I have no idea what the deal is, I've tried updating drivers, re installing flash.  
Just to recap.  Audio ALWAYS works.  Youtube visual ALWAYS works in explorer.  SOME youtube visual works in chrome.  Vimeo visual NEVER works in any broswer.

Maybe its the Shockwave or Flash Player, have you tried reinstalling to the latest version?
