    Just want to say a belated thanks to WBF for solving photo posting problems. Easy task now.

    But lately I've started to have a problem in watching videos posted on the Forum. When I get to a thread that has a video, this is what I see:

    I'm guessing that is my problem, not WBF because I haven't seen anyone else having these problems. If I go to Youtube I can watch those videos, just not the ones posted here.

    Any ideas out there?

    Thanks,

    Eric

    No ideas, but another poster on my A Kurylko Alaska in Georgian Bay thread (post #57) said he wasn't able to view my videos, either--and he suspected it had something to do with his computer settings rather than the forum.

    You don't have to be prepared as long as you're willing to suffer the consequences.

    The person that posts the video on Youtube sets the parameters about how the video can be viewed.
    There are choices like Hand held phones etc.,.

    Also if your computer is not up to date on everything it can cause problems.
    If just one JAVA file is missing it can put you out of business.
    I love the smell of fresh cut plywood in the morning.

    You know Donald, this sounds like a good idea, perhaps an update of the software that shows the video would be the right thing.

    What software would that be? I am such a computer dolt.

    Thanks,

    Just an update. The problem is not with my computer.

    I logged on to the forum from a different computer today and had the same outcome.

    Black box on videos.

    So it must be something associated with my username.

    HELP!

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Eric,

    I never got a message--did you send one? A quick thought--what browser are you using? From postings I've seen on the Forum, it seems like Chrome works for videos, but maybe Safari doesn't. So I'd try Chrome and hope the fix is that easy.

    Sorry about that Tom, I sent a PM to the individual who was having problems seeing your videos. Asked him if he found a cure. He said that it magically healed itself.

    I'll give it a shot! Thanks!

    And Tom has the winning answer! Thanks Tom!

    Video's don't work with WBF and Windows 7 and 10, but is working with Chrome.

    Now I can get back to watching Leo and the Tally Ho!

    Muchas Gracias!
