I used to watch the TED videos using the links in their email. Then some time ago they stopped playing. It accesses the website and video but there is a circle going around and nothing happens. I tested the same on Microsoft Edge and it works. I do not like Edge and hopefully, you can solve this issue because it is important. I have looked at all the solutions online but they do not fix the problem. I use Windows 11 and everything is up to date.

Oh well nobody could resolve this problem of playing videos on Ted.com. BUT, now suddenly it is working and funnily enough, there was a Firefox update.

Grammarly and Roboform. They are not the problem.

TED URL cannot be the issue because it works on Edge.

It must be something to do with Firefox and I have tried all the solutions I could find online. It still does not play the videos.

First, maybe you could read the book "How to win friends and influence people". If you ask no problem but as you will see from the attached you will not learn more than what I gave you in words. Please try to be a little more polite in your future responses. It would be nice if you had a solution to this frustrating issue.

You will see it has a circle going around and around. It does the same on Edge before it quickly starts. It looks like a Firefox issue.

Your comment is not helping and now you have the images asked for. I did not know and there are politer ways to say so. Just ask instead of making it a judgement. HOWEVER, that does not fix the problem. Can it be fixed or do is it necessary to stop using Firefox?

TED-Ed videos and most TEDx content are actually embedded from YouTube on TED.com, not added as unique files . This means that any usual governmental, local, institutional, or organizational restrictions on YouTube will apply, so the content will not be viewable on TED.com. I'm afraid we don't have a workaround for YouTube restrictions.

It appears a top 10 contributor is unable o solve this problem. Are there others out there who can? It appears a lot of people have this a similar problem. Should I assume it is not fixable and hence stop using Firefox?

studysucceedenjoy98 Perhaps you can explain how they play on other browsers but not on Firefox because from what you have said they should not be able to play.

Can somebody confirm this please? The experts on here are saying there is a problem with playing videos on YouTube using Firefox and yet despite this problem the same video works on Chrome and Edge. Is this correct.

Perhaps the experts could also explain why the same video can be played by going to YouTube and playing it even on Firefox. All kind of weird.

Help anybody!
