Btw did you stumble on this post while searching for easy list problems?
Or are you using Mediamonkey to listen to/tag your tunes?

In any case, I really appreciate the work that you and other people do... :wink:


Thanx for the kudos, Dreadlau. :)

Actually, I do a preset Google search for "adblock plus" .... 24hrs.
Then I look through them for problems or support issues over the last day. Fortuanately 'Guest' posting is allowed here .... so I answered. :D

If you are using the EasyList subscription for Adblock Plus, there was a false-positive for the "faith_v2.swf" address that didn't allow the swf to initiate correctly.

That problem was fixed a while ago on the cnet.com domain ... but it didn't work for the videos on the download.com domain. I have just repaired that problem. Update the EasyList and try it again. All seems fine here now. :)

Sorry 'bout that. :(

Works for me too:D
Had to deactivate adblock plus though. (So much ugly ads on this site without it :o )

I will still use your trick and install flash9 on Internet explorer.
But tomorrow.
Going to bed now.

Thx for your help owyn

Good night.

Yep. It works now. I had posted a trouble ticket with CNet so looks like they finally got the Adobe version detect fix in.

Still had a problem with Adblock+ interfering. Centre Clicked ABP icon to temporarily disable it and video worked in FF tab. Looks like I need to take another look at my whitelist for Cnet.

Still sticking with IE7 at Flash9 as fallback for other sites that have not installed the Adobe fix. And of course, IE7 does not have the Adblock+ Firefox Add-on, so no whitelist issues either.

Thank you Owyn.

Unfortunately ie7 doesn't prompt me to install flash when browsing to the cnet link.
Also I think flash v10 is the stable version now.
So I'll have to search a bit to find version 9 installer.
I'm will look for installer now.



If someone knows a link to get Flash Player 9 for Internet Explorer
Please be kind and post it here.

Simplest way to set it up is to exit FF and start IE7.

Then go to the CNet video page and let IE install it's latest stable Flash plugin (this should be Flash 9).

After the video is running in IE7. Exit IE, restart FF, right-click the Cnet Video link and select "Open Link in IETab".

Another method that works, but not as reliably in FF, is to right-click the Tab and select "Switch Rendering Engine".

Hi Owyn.

I'm going to try your suggestion.
But I need some help for setting it up.


Right now FF use flash 10 (shockwave flash 10.0 r12)

I installed ie tab and when i use it for the cnet video, the video doesn't appear on the page.
(does it mean flash player isn't installed yet on ie?)

I took a look in ie and i saw in the plugin manager an entry called shockwave active-x control.

How do you know if flash is installed (and which version) in ie?

Thank you

CNet Video / TV is a bit funky at the moment. Has problems with Flash 10 and needs to have some whitelist's to get past Adblock+.

My solution is to keep IE7 at Flash9 and use the Firefox Add-On IETAB to open the link to the video.

This workaround is useful whenever you seem to be having problems Flash Video in Firefox.

Oh man. still no luck with the video.

I tried to install shockwave but my installation is corrupted. i get an error message at the end of the installation wizard telling me I have to run it at administrator. Though i'm always running at administrator. After googling the error message i found lots of poeple having the same problem, but not found a solution so far.
Someone wrote about succeeding to install it by changing permissions on some registry settings. I'm not quite used to change the registry. So idk how to do it.

I'll try with a different computer someday.


Thx for the links though.

Have a nice day,

Dread

Curious how a simple link to a web's video can manifest to such debate on video drivers... :-?
