    I tried searching and found nothing. When I go to a post that has a video, all I see is a blank, black square. It must be working for everyone else because these posts get replies regarding the video. Any idea what setting I need to change on my side? I'm running Win 10 and IE 11 with all updates available installed.

    Thanks ETS. However, that link directs me to a location that doesn't seem to exist (at least not for me). It won't even accept a PM from me (like it suggests).

    The link simply directs you to a message that essentially says "Send a PM (Private Message) to "Admin" (without the quotes).

    I just tried to send a PM again and it still shows up as "0" in my "Sent Items"

    Hang in there DocGlock, someone will chime in with some help. I use firefox as my browser and have no trouble. I'm not a computer guy...I usually ask my friends 11 year old for help. Den

    DocGlock - Do you have Adobe Flash Player Installed?

    https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    Hope this helps.

    Flash Player may or may not be the answer. And no IT specialist in their right mind would recommend installing it. Google "flash player danger" and you'll see what I mean.

    What I do is reply to the post with the video in it by pressing the quote button rather than the reply button. The link to the video is embedded in the quote. At that point, I simply highlight the link to the video, copy and paste it into a new tab and voila, problem solved. So here, for example, is a video from another post (courtesy of GunnyBlue):



    If you reply to this post by pressing the quote button instead of the reply button, you'll see that the embedded video is:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agL59nLBAqk

    Highlight that text, copy and paste it into a new tab, and press enter.
