zzxc: ok, try any video from http://www.hulu.com and let me know if it works.
topedge: hulu is us only

zzxc has left the conversation.
topedge: i am playing cnn int'l on my notebook right now in firefox
topedge: when i operate in this computer with an updated version of firefox i get the following message; we're sorry, but we couldn't find the video stream. Please check your internet connection and make sure your're connected. Disable any proxy or ad blocking software. I have tried to run it with my firewalls down with out any difference
i think the technical person had it figured out before he 'heard' the issues.
