    Big Black Block

    I'm not sure exactly where in the forum to post this, but I need help with a tech problem. Whenever someone makes a post with an embedded video in it, all I see is a black rectangle. Nothing else. No controls, nothing. What would be causing and how can I fix it? This only started happening a couple of days ago. This is on any desktop computer I am using.

    I get the black rectangle quite often. I've wondered if the video is posted in some format my computer can't "read"?
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    It must be a problem with your computers or browsers. I have no trouble seeing the videos on my desktop using Firefox, IE11 or Edge. I have windows 10. It's been suggested in the past for problems like this to clear your cache/cookies to solve problems like this. Good luck to you, hope this method helps.
