Videos won't play (ESPN) - Okay on YouTube


Best Answer Rixtertrader , 09 June 2012 - 09:09 AM

Safe Mode didn't fix the problem.I did not think it had to be an application because I am able to play videos of other sites.And it affected all browsers only for ESPN.This means something is blocking that site only within the browsers.I decided to... Go to the full post

    Good, inexpensive wine (not an oxymoron).

How does it behave if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? If better then something is starting at boot that is causing the problem.

Advanced startup options - XP
Advanced startup options - Vista
Advanced startup options - Windows 7

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.

Note: You will get a message on reboot about using the System Configuration Utility. See here for how to prevent it from displaying in the future: How do I get rid of this msconfig startup error after making changes?

I saw a lot of stuff in your installed software list I did not recognize, including several toolbars.

Try Reset Internet Explorer 9 settings

Also, try uninstsalling Java 7 update 4 and install Java 6 update 31, see if that helps.

Not sure how this interacts with browser stuff: Infragistics UltraToolBars
Or thisd: Miro Video Converter Participatory Culture Foundation 04/14/2012 16.4 MB 1.6.9

Safe Mode didn't fix the problem. I did not think it had to be an application because I am able to play videos of other sites. And it affected all browsers only for ESPN. This means something is blocking that site only within the browsers. I decided to check out the HOSTS file. It's really long, so I changed the name to HOSTS.old and created a new one with the default two lines. ESPN videos work! So something in the HOSTS file is blocking something at ESPN. After being able to play the videos, whatever it was blocking is now on my machine. Probably an AD type cookie. So I restored my HOSTS file and it still plays. So we'll consider this resolved. Thanks for your time. :thumbup:

Good detective work. I had completely forgotten about the impact the hosts file can have. What seems strange is why when you put it back it now works. Can't argue with success though. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks. I'm thinking that the website adds a cookie or temp file of some kind that allows the video to display advertising first. When I set the HOSTS file to default and went to the site to play the video, it was able to add the file. Putting the original HOSTS file back doesn't remove that file, probably just blocks it from being added to my machine. Since it's already on my machine now, the video plays. Just a guess. Anyway, I'd call this resolved. How do you close these threads (or is that necessary)? :woot:

Not necessary to close. We leave all threads open for future comment. Not always a good thing but mostly it is.

This is because ESPN, and a multitude of other sites with video content, insist that you don't block 3rd party cookies. It's kind of gross. But now that Firefox will enable this setting by default they'll have to make a call on whether they would rather not advertise at all, or insist on hogging every possible detail about your identity :P

Hi, I'm having the same problem as the OP (Rixtertrader). ESPN videos -- which, until recently, have always worked for me -- will not start in any browser that I've tried. Videos on every other site work fine.

 

The OP mentions that editing some "HOST" files seemed to fix the problem, but I'm not really sure what these are or what exactly he/she did to restore them. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

 Thanks for the quick response terry. Unfortunately, resetting my hosts file didn't fix the problem. Any other suggestions?

if videos play fine every where else then the only thing i can think of is either an adblock program is blocking them or your flash settings may have espn blocked or not allow any sites to use local storage, which i believe it needs to work.
