Video & Audio links not working Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a problem in that I have never been anle to get video or audio links to work. Whenever I click on such a link simply nothing happens, for example I often log on to the BBC news page and there are always a number of video links which I would like to play but canítóis there something I am missing? Any help very gratefully received.

many thanks
Benedictine
 
Are you expecting to see a pop-up? Perhaps your pop-up blocker is preventing these from appearing.

1.) Go to the website where the links don't work.
2.) Select "Show Site Preferences" from the OmniWeb menu (or select "Preferences..." to change this for all websites).
3.) Choose the ad blocking panel.
4.) For "Block popup windows" choose never or "only when not requested".
5.) Reload the page. Try the link again.

I have followed these instructions precisely, for the David Pogue Technology videos in the New York Times, and for the DailyShow videos, but they still will not play for me in OmniWeb, although they do play in e.g. FireFox.

What else can I do to get them and other videos to play in OmniWeb?
 
Do you mean the content on e.g. http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/t...ow/index.jhtml

If so, these are Flash content - are you blocking .swf files in your ad blocking blacklist at all? If so, try disabling ad blocking for those sites. Or have you disabled the flash plugin in OmniWeb?

Michaela in tech support just solved the problem for me with the following instructions - note the difference starting at step 4:

1) Visit the site.
2) Open Site Preferences (the light switch in the tool bar).
3) Select "Preferences for...".
4) Select "Ad Blocking".
5) Deselect the "Block images and other inline content: Matching known ad sizes" box.

6) Refresh the page.
