MSN Video Highlights always cut off

Postby kamaboko » Fri Jan 16, 2009 11:07 pm


I've got a Vostro 1400 laptop with a Nvidia 8400GS video card. I installed the lasted Mint OS 32bit, did all the updates, used the latest restricted Nvidia drivers, etc. When I go to MSN to watch the video streaming news, it always craps out after about 30 seconds. Youtube seens to be fine. In any case, this is really starting to tick me off. Any solutions?

I went to
and watched a video - no problems. Then I navigated to News > CHANNELS > Headlines
I have the NoScript add on and when I only allowed MSN I got about 30 seconds, but when I allowed "all this page" it was just fine. There was also and noted by Noscript and the statusbar mentioned
The first portion of the video probably comes from msn and the rest from somewhere else - this is different depending on where in the world you are - I was denied access to the MSN US site due to my location
So I guess this is a internet problem if you don't use NoScript (which I think you should)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
