twit tv no longer working with recent updates - SOLVED

Postby revdjenk on Thu Feb 26, 2009 12:31 pm

Anyone have any ideas?

I have removed and re-installed adobe flash and flash nonfree packages...but to no avail...

Or is this about something else? I have virual Mandriva and Mepis, both showing twit tv with no problem.

God bless
Doug

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I had no problems on this
http://live.twit.tv/
I don't know if that's the one you try to watch

Yes, that is it...

...all I see is the blue background with a white square in the middle with the twit logo, but not the streaming video, or any audio.
Many other web sites that have flash insets, but they are greyed out with a "play" arrow in them. Some will play if I click on the arrow. Some not.

BTW,

twit.tv is a production by Leo Laporte, a long-time computer programmer, content provider, and fantastic webcast host. His shows are often the most watched tech shows. He has one, FLOSS Weekly, which focuses on free-libre open source software.

God Bless
