How come videos on a website I am supposed to use for school are not loading? 

by on January 22, 2013

Q: There is a website that I must use for school. It has embedded videos that are apparently mp4 files. The browser uses flash to play them but the only thing that appears is a black screen.

If I right-click the black screen it says “Video not loaded…”

I have another computer with a different version of Flash and it plays the videos fine. The computer where it DOESNT work has the latest version of flash…whereas the computer that DOES work is an older version of flash.

The player that is embedded in the website is the Kaltura Open Source Player.

Youtube videos play perfect. Just not the video from the Kaltura embedded player AND only on the one computer.

When I played around with the ShockWave PLugin in Chrome I got it to work once..and then it stopped working. It seems to work intermittently at best.

Also…there is McAffee security on the computer that does NOT work. Could it be somehow preventing the video from playing? But again, the weird thing is that sometimes you can get it to work just by trying to load the browser again.

Any ideas?

thank you,

 
 

How come the video thumbnails are showing funny in Windows Vista? 

by on December 13, 2012

Q: In Vista Home Premium Explorer all of my Video Thumbnails are showing a “filmstrip” box and the Video previews them selves are 1/2 way below this box like 1/2 way outside the preview frame? I have most of the codec systems installed vista codec pack xvid flash player and vlc and so on. ALL formats show previews but they are seriously messed up being ALL off center vertically. Is there some way to fix them? I am associating all formats to Media Player Classic Home Theater and this never happened before? If you need more details I would need to know how to generate the information you need thank you for your valuable time I have found no solution through extensive search of internet.

How come I have a problem playing videos on my computer from my camera? 

by on November 5, 2011

Q: I have a problem playing videos on my computer from my camera. On my camera they play at normal speed but when I put my SD card in my computer the video skips (with the background music normal speed but still frames of pictures). Is this down to the computer/camera or SD card.
The camera I have is a canon powershot SX220 HS. The SD card I used is 4GBSDHC. And I have a netbook mini 210-2006sa. I have tried to play it in all VLC, quicktime, and other players but nothing. Can anyone help?
