    Can't see videos

    When I or someone else posts a video, I'm just seeing a black space. Never had that problem before that I can recall, and I don't know how to troubleshoot it.

    Right click, and you should be given the link to the video at the original location where it will work.

    old problem went away has now reappeared. Only happens in Explorer -- if I go to Chrome or Firefox the black box isnt' there.
