My Macs won't open certain Flash videos
on Nov 19, 2007 at 9:27:38 pm

Why is it that Flash videos from certain web sites will not open on either of my Macs, but my PC plays them fine? For instance, the sample videos on the ON2 web site will not open. I have downloaded the latest Flash 9 player from Adobe. I was told that Flash had something like 90-something per-cent compatibility with computers.

Not familiar with the ON2 site, but sometimes, detection scripts screw up. They're just bad unless you offer a 'click here anyway' because so many don't know how to implement them.

Or, like a few other stupid companies, the site restricts to a certain browser and platform. America West for example does this for their employee site ( It's just ridiculous... one HAS to be on Windows and in Exploder, I mean Explorer 6.0 or above.

No other browser works on the Windows os and none whatsoever work on the Mac.

It could be one of those issues.
