    Can't view embedded videos

    For several days now I haven't been able to view any of the videos that have been posted in the threads. Not having any problems watching videos on any of the other sites I visit, just on this one. Earlier in the week I got logged out, couldn't remember my pass word and had to have a new one issued.

    I did a restart on my computer and got the recommended updates for my Java (and other) apps.

    Not sure what the problem is. The only thing I can think of at this point is that because I had to have a new password issued the forum software thinks I'm a newbie who doesn't have video privledges yet.

    Was hoping one of the Mods might look at my account to see what's what.

    Thanks in advance.

    Now... how long web support takes to resolve this issue is out of my hands.

    Understood.

    Up until this I've never really had any problems with using these forums. In fact I'd have to say that of all the places I go on the Intertube this one has to be about the quickest responding and least frustrating to try and use.

    Re: Can't view embedded videos

    I have bad news for you fellas holding on to IE 11. That browser was retired quite some time ago, and as a result Microsoft are no longer updating it. The video changes appear to be related to YouTube moving their videos to HTTPS urls from HTTP. There's nothing we can do on our end to resolve your issues. I would suggest downloading a more modern browser like Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Edge.

    cheers,

    Ie 11 discontinued? Seems like it was just released a year or two ago.
    Feel like I'm getting old. Suppose its also time to discard lecture notes from my COBOL class, along with the punched cards?

    Have used Firefox in the past, and liked it. Will update.

    Robb, thanks for figuring this out.
