Videos Wont Play!

Post#1 » Tue May 15, 2012 12:41 am

When I try to watch a video now.. the little orange cone pops up in its place and nothing happens.
I did the VLC update 2 suggested on the main page.
Before I done that the vids would tell me it wasnt a DIVX format or whatever..

Any clue on where I went wrong?

Sounds like you installed the VLC plug-in.
Goto your browser extensions and Disable VLC plug-in and check that Divx plug-in is on.

How to manage plug-in's
FireFox>goto>greasmonkey>manage user scripts>plug-in's

Chrome>Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
Select Settings.
Click the Under the Hood tab.
Click Content settings in the "Privacy" section.
Then click disable individual plug-in's.

How to manage plug-in's with IE goto>tools>manage add-on's From here you can check that you have divx web player and that it is enabled you can also turn off/on the VLC plug-in if you installed it and need to. Some browsers will have problems with multi players others don't.

Okay.. I prematurely posted earlier. I disabled VLC and assumed that would fix the problem but it didn't.
I'm still getting the same message when I try to watch something.

For example.. when I try to download The Vow (2012)..

I choose (Source #1: ShareBees)

Then it asks me to choose a streaming script. Usually I just click underneath them on the "Proceed to:" link.

When that page loads I click the FREE DOWNLOAD LINK.. (I don't accept the DivX update that pops up).
Then I hit PLAY on the video.. it acts like it's buffering.. then I get the message:

DivX Web Player: Playback error!
The Downloaded video file is not a DivX file.

I sometimes get that error and do not know why. I just ignore it. Vid still plays for me.
