espn videos

Postby animaguy on Sat Aug 18, 2012 6:59 pm

Generally speaking, I do not have a lot to complain about with flash videos.

But I noticed something and I wanted to see if anyone experiences the same problem.

Whenever I am on firefox and I am reading articles on espn I sometimes come across a video on the espn website. And whenever that happens the video doesn't work.

I can admit that I am not desperate to watch videos on espn but now that I think about it, espn is a well funded website with what I would assume would be the best web technology money can buy.

Does anyone know why the videos on espn do not work?

On youtube flash videos work fine, and as far as I know no other website I am aware of has this same problem.

Are there any Linux Mint users out ther who can watch videos on espn?

Is there any thing I can install to make these videos work?

They work fine

Also, you didn't actually say what the problem is....

And: Did you try another browser or a new FF profile?

caf4926,

The video is just a black screen. I have to admit that part of doesn't care enough to install another browser.

But it is a glitch or bug and I thought I would be a good citizen and see if someone else is experiencing the problem.

I may consider installing Chrome or Opera when I am not busy but I like Firefox more than I like watching ESPN videos.

try this link. it seems to have worked for me.

I definitely did the Agent Switcher and it seems to have did the trick.

Hmm... Weird... It's working well on my newly bought netbook that I bought from Lazada too. Loading the website using Firefox and Chrome.
