    Anyone else having trouble with VideoEgg?

    Whenever I try to watch Zero Punctuation videos (like the latest), which use VideoEgg, I'm always able to watch the commercial before the video, but after the commercial is over, the feature video itself does not play; it just skips right to this:



    I'm on Hardy with Firefox 3.0b5 and Flash 9, of course.

    I never heard of videoegg. Can you give a few links to examples that give you trouble? I see 31 people have looked at this post but not responded. I suspect if you gave examples, you would get more help.

    The one link in your OP was just to the developers web site and that seemed to work ok for me.

    If you install the "Adblock Plus" addon for firefox, there won't be a commercial messing up the embed code, and you can watch the video just fine.

    Open up a Firefox window, go to "Tools">Add-ons>Get add-ons, type in "adblock" and search, and select and install "Adblock Plus". When you restart firefox, select the "Easylist USA" option.

    You can always disable adblock when you don't need it, if you prefer to keep ads on most sites (if you think they deserve the ad revenue, etc). But the way that videoegg sets up their advertising messes up the video, for some reason, and this is the easiest way to get around it.

    Sorry, I didn't see the first one. Funny review, good site.
    I just tried it and it worked perfectly for me. I do have adblock installed, but it is currently disabled, so if I was going to have the problem, I should have seen it. There was a small window in the upper left corner of the screen that had an add in it during the first minute or so, but it went away without interaction from me.
