I use Firefox on a Lenovo G700 Laptop running Windows 8.1. For the last six or seven months (and maybe longer), I've had a problem involving Foxsports.com--I can't watch video on the site. Specifically, when I try to view video on the site, all I get is a black placeholder where the video should be. There are two screwy aspects to this problem: I have this problem in multiple browsers (Firefox, Chrome and IE11), and Foxsports.com is the only site that's giving me problems. I have corresponded at length with Microsoft about this, and I've followed all their suggestions (even refreshing my machine), but I still have the problem. Has anyone else run across this, and if so, how did you fix it? (Even an elementary settin change is worth telling me about. BTW, I have sent several emails to the site but have heard nothing back.

Try these tips ... http://www.foxsoccer2go.com/problemsWatchingVideos .

 (I know it's for soccer videos, but the same principles should apply)

ElfBane, thanks for the tip. I tried right-clicking on the player, but I didn't get the pop-up box described in the hints. I remembered I had installed NoScript, so I started allowing feeds. I finally got the video to play (although I had this problem before NoScript--go figure!), so I think the problem is solved (at last!)

 

Many thanks.

BTW, I found that the site videos also run in Chrome and IE!!--how that happened I'll never know!
