The videos at http://www.cbsnews.com/video/ don't seem to be working for me.

Is it just me?

Safari 5.0.1
Flash plugin 10.1.82.76 (latest)

Are you using Click2Flash (either Safari extension or InputManager)?

Nope.
I even turned off Extensions to try to troubleshoot.

The intro ads seem to play in most cases, but then the player window is just black.

I have Click2Flash installed, and the video works just fine here - unfortunately.

Apart from the fact that Paris always finds somebody willing to play fall guy for her drug escapades for what I presume is an inordinate compensation, I really hate it when voiceovers are done by the intern, rather than SOMEbody WHO has LEARNED to SPEAK with someTHING apPROACHing NORmal DICtion - make SURE to EMphaSIZE the imPORtant SYLlables, Joe.

Professionalism in journalism is increasingly becoming rarer.

Ironic that the Onion does it marvellously.

Firefox 3.6.8 and Safari 5.0.1 here. Nothing plays on Firefox. On Safari, I get the intro ad, but no news video. Really odd.

Videos still not working for me. Firefox can now see the opening ad, though.
