I'm getting a square with the little x where everyone's videos should be on hubpages (not just my own). Videos play fine on youtube. Is there a sneaky IE setting somewhere that's been accidently turned off? We did get a new antivirus program recently, but even with it turned off the videos are not working for me.
It might mean that your Flash plugin has been turned off.
To see if this is the case, check that flash is enabled in your browser. (Go to Tools/Internet Options/Program Tab/Manage add-ons/"Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer")
Select "Shockwave Flash Object" and in Settings, select the "Enable" checkbox and hit OK. Then, restart Internet Explorer.
Or, you might just redownload Flash from http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about and reinstall it to see if that fixes the issue.
Thanks, Larry, that was the kind of tip I was looking for, but no cigar. It is enabled, and when I clicked the link to redownload, it says I have the latest installed.
Oh, and it's actually not an x - don't know what that icon is exactly, but the one that tells you photos/videos are not working :-)
If this is the case, here's the fix:
Tools->Internet Options->Security Tab->Press the Default Level Button
bummer! comment box looks fine, and java scripting is enabled. I've tried some other misc options in IE, too, and still no luck.
can someone tell me if the video works in my lastest hub (redneck Christmas tree)? I'm pretty sure it does, but just in case.
any other ideas?
As promised, here are some additional questions:
Does video work on Firefox? If the problem is specific to IE that would clearly indicate an IE setting.
Also, which version of IE are you using?
Thanks, Larry - IE 7, and I'm on a work computer so can't try firefox. My personal computer is at the shop...I might just have to wait until I get it back for videos :-(
If you go to the Internet Options and click on the security tab of IE 7, there is a button that says "Reset all zones to the default level."
Unfortunately, if that doesn't solve your problem, I am out of ideas. Hopefully, when your machine gets out of the shop, you'll be able to see videos at least on your home machine.
new info, Larry :-)
Someone at work sent me the following and it wouldn't work:
And I noticed that Mark Knowles Christmas Greeting in the Hubbers Hangout also ends with swf and I couldn't see that either....
does that help? Think it's related?

I checked a hub I published this morning and the video is not working. I rentered everything and still, no go. Then I checked other hubs with video and the same thing.

What is the reason that I am unable to edit and even post a forum question through Google Chrome? I am working through Internet Explorer at present and posting this question.

A few minutes ago they were working but then they all went dead on all the articles on Hub Pages that I checked.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

I have tested HubPages ads and saw that it lowered my Google AdSense CTR by a LOT. That said, obviously I started making money with the HubPages ads. Since, in the past, AdSense was my breadwinner across my hubs and...
