I’ve been informed recently that some people are having problems viewing videos at both Television Obscurities the website and the blog. Instead of videos, they’re seeing “Loading the player…” instead. I try to test every video to make sure it works but occasionally mistakes are made. That being said, I have been unable to reproduce the issues being reported, so I thought I would run a test and ask for input.
I usually check content in Windows using Internet Explorer 11 as well as the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox; when I have the opportunity I also check content on a Mac using the latest versions of Chrome and Safari.
Below you should see a single video (a promotional spot for The Golddiggers) as well as a playlist with multiple videos (promotional spots for Saturday Night Live, from NBC Saturdays, 1984-1985). Plus, just for good measure, an audio file (the opening theme song to The New People).
Do these files play for you? If not, what Internet browser are you using?
