Flash plays the advertisement video that runs prior to the main video, but then always displays "We're sorry, an unexpected error has occurred. Please try again or select a different video." when it should automatically switch to playing the main video - IE8 has no problem seamlessly switching from playing the ad video to playing the main video. This is a consistent problem across various websites with ads playing before videos.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Safe mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

Thanks for your reply.

I have tried all you suggest but it has not resolved the issue. I still see the ad video, but the 'main' video still fails.

Any other ideas?
